Pravin Gordhan is a fool

2017-04-12 19:25

Listening to Pravin Gordhan one can tell that he is an intelligent man, that he cares for South Africa and that he wants the best for all its citizens. All good qualities.

Unfortunately Pravin Gordhan is also a fool.

You see, at Ahmed Kathrada’s memorial in Durban Pravin Gordhan decided to wear an ANC branded shirt. Lovely. He wants the world to know that he believes in the ANC, that he believes the ANC is the right choice for South African voters. Pravin seems to really still think that the way to a bright future for South Africa and all its citizens is via the ANC.

Yes, Pravin Gordhan is an ANC loyalist. So what exactly is one loyal to when one is loyal to the ANC? It’s not pretty.

Pravin is loyal to an organisation whose president spits on the constitution. Pravin is loyal to an organisation that steals Rbillions from taxpayers through corrupt deals with state owned institutions. Pravin is loyal to an organisation that has corrupted and muzzled our police service and the national prosecuting authority.

Pravin’s beloved ANC is hell bent on bankrupting our country through a Russian nuclear deal to line the pockets of its patronage network, best described as fat pigs with their snotty snouts in the trough of our national coffers. Pravin loves an organisation that forces us to support incompetent and corrupt fools running the SABC, SAA, PRASA, Eskom – organisations that are losing money hand over fist and therefore require Rbillions in bailout money every year. Pravin repeatedly signed off on budgets that prop up these money guzzling piggy banks of the corrupt and connected.

Pravin believes in an organisation that is corrupt to its very core.

He loves the people that engineered a Rbillion theft by selling our Strategic Fuel Fund at rock bottom prices. He loves the people that wasted Rbilllions in a corrupt deal to buy trains we cannot use. He loves the ANC man at Eskom that provided Rbillions in sweetheart deals to his daughter. He loves an organisation that sells ministerial positions for a pot of curry and R600 million.

Pravin loves the ANC which is now so morally bankrupt that the only campaign strategy it has left is to pay a UK PR firm BellPottinger to spread racial division in South Africa. The ANC is paying PR firms Rmillions to destroy Nelson Mandela’s dream of a non-racial, united South Africa. They are saying that you are just a spineless traitor Pravin, that you sold your soul to the mythical White Minority Capitalists, our modern equivalent of the apartheid era Swart Gevaar.

Pravin Gordhan loves an organisation that destroys the future of millions of South Africans by providing them with one of the worst education systems in the world. Mr. Gordhan loves the people that put the social security system, depended on by millions, at risk for deals involving their sugar boy lovers.

Pravin Gordhan loves the ANC, and it is the ANC that forced its fool of a police minister to stand in front of parliament and tell them that a swimming pool’s main purpose is to provide water in case of fire. Pathetic. He loves the organisation that is doing absolutely everything in its power to make sure that its president can get away with stealing R250m of your money wasted on his stupid kraal mansion.

You see folks, one can only say ONE thing about ANC loyalists. They are either:

A: corrupt to their core


B: fools for sure

Pravin Gordhan does not strike me as a man that is corrupt. So he must be a fool.

This is the true ANC of today:

Zuma = ANC = Gupta = ANC = Corruption = ANC = ZumaPF = ANC = ZanuPF = ANC = Zuma = ANC = Mugabe = ANC

The ANC of your past is dead Pravin. The ANC of Mandela and Hani and Tambo is dead, and it can never return. The ANC is too corrupt. A vast number of ANC leaders at national, provincial and local government would have to admit to all that they and their patronage network have stolen and go to jail once again in order to Save South Africa. They will never do it. The ANC cannot change. You, and your few fellow incorruptible ANC loyalists, have been foolish. You have allowed your beloved organisation to be hijacked by the immoral and corrupt. It is done, over, finish en klaar.

There is a saying Pravin that goes something like this “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

The time has come to bury the ANC of your dreams and refocus on a new dream – a united and prosperous South Africa for all its citizens. How best to achieve that? By ensuring that the parasitic, divisive, destructive and immoral ANC of today is voted out of power in 2019.

Publicly denounce your ANC membership and join a political party that can best lead us all to a non-racial, prosperous South Africa. Which political party should that be? COPE is too weak. The IFP has never been a home for all South Africans. The EFF has very different ideas to you on how to create a prosperous South Africa for all. They are probably a bridge too far for you.

I believe there is only one party that truly represents all you believe in Pravin, and that party is the DA.

So stop being a Zupta fool, say goodbye to the sad parody of your beloved ANC, join the DA and help to realise a South African government that we can all be proud of.

Then we can focus on tackling our real problems, as explained in these two videos by

- Why Africa is economically doomed

- What we can do about it

So what will it be, Mr. Gordhan?
