Political education of vital importance

2016-06-15 06:00

LEBOHANG MOKOAKOE, EFF spokesperson for the Thabo Mofutsanyana Region:

THE front page article by Tladi Moloi in last week’s edition (08/06) of Express Eastern Free State confirmed my suspicion about the protest march in Ficksburg on 31 May.

It must be said at the outset that it was not a community march, but the ANC marching against itself.

What happened to “Amandla ase masebeni” while people march to government offices to demand the nomination of their preferred candidates?

Where are the ANC structures, so democratic and progressive as they would have us believe, to put forth their grievances?

The significance of political education cannot be over­emphasised, particularly in this period of heightened ideological bankruptcy and political ineptitude.

Political training is not only significant for building consciousness, but also to ensure all-round cadre development.

South Africa cannot be led by people who are not conversant with their own organisational culture, who lack conflict resolution or management abilities to decisively deal with their own internal affairs.

No wonder we are so poorly governed and are on the brink of a failed state.

Hopefully the people of the Setsoto Local Municipality will see right through the ­parasitic, vulturous and scavenging habits of people who are not interested in their well-being and the broader development of their community, but interested in lining their own pockets and those of the connected few.

“You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all of the time,” stated Abraham Lincoln.

Your time to steal from the poor is over.

We (EFF) are the ones our people have been waiting for, to lead them into the land of plenty and prosperity.

We are the future.

The EFF is the last hope for jobs and service delivery.
