SOUTH African Communist Party (SACP) Lower South Coast fully supports the ruling party in the upcoming local government elections. This follows rumours that communist party members were eliminated in the nomination of candidates process. Mzamo Nyawose of SACP said the rumours are false and have resulted in a division within the alliance.Nyawose said in some KZN areas communist party members were killed as it was believed they were against the ANC.He said the rumours are false and they support the ANC.“AS SACP in South Coast, we had discussions on how we will be launching red forums, which will be the ground force of ensuring we work hand in hand with the ANC. We will be volunteering as campaigners ensuring that the ANC wins the elections in its various branches.” They also congratulate Hibiscus Coast Municipality for receiving a clean audit award.“We believe that as the Communist Party, working with the municipality, we can uplift the lives of citizens. The SACP is prepared to fight poverty through co-operatives which we have identified as a solution to hunger. “The co-operatives were part of the training co-ordinated by the municipality and we believe they acquired many skills through the training,” he said.Nyawose said as part of Mandela Day they will be visiting schools conducting lectures about Nelson Mandela.“On 17 and 18 July we will be conducting lectures on Nelson Mandela. On 17 July we will be at Merlewood Secondary and on 18 July we will be at Nkonka High as part our 67 minutes,” said Nyawose.
