If you have been following the nuances of each party’s’ local election campaign recently, you may have noticed that while the DA is still tackling the ANC head on (their latest ad HERE), the EFF are attempting to debunk the myth that they will drive white people out once they gain power.
Malema even went to Orania.
The latest? Over the weekend EFF deputy chairman Moafrica Mabongwana was in Pretoria, welcoming the Afrikaaner community of Hermanstad. The community had invited the party to show support, and the EFF accepted, “demonstrating to other black parties that is was possible to have white people rallying behind them, as they too could support what they stood for,” explained IOL.
There is a myth going on in the country that the EFF is anti-white, but we are here to say that it is not the case.
We’re doing this to change that perception and to show that we are prepared to work with anyone who believes in our policies.
We were invited by the people of this community to help bring progress to this area and this is exactly what we plan to do.
The community told us their problems with regards to housing, drugs and crime.
These people were promised houses and have been waiting since 2005. Every time there are elections, the DA and ANC come here and promise to solve their issues should the residents vote for them.
They keep telling these voters that there is one official left to sign a particular document before their wishes could come true.
The DA was chased away by the community. These people then invited us to come here instead and we’ve arrived… Already there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Local Evelyn Buys said the community had grown tired of the empty promises, and decided it was time to give the EFF a chance:
I’ve been staying in an RDP house for 13 years with my six children, but I still don’t have the title deed. Despite being poor, the City of Tshwane insists on wanting me to pay for the rates and taxes for a property that is not even mine.
I believe that the EFF is going to help us get the city to solve our problems once and for all. We know it’s election time and people will be promising us a lot of things, but we’ve tried the other parties and they all failed.
We have thus decided to give the EFF a chance.
Immediately, the EFF took action. Advocate Andries Nkome said they were writing to the municipality on behalf of the community.
All these people need are their title deeds and for the rates and taxes to be adjusted in light of the fact that they are grant recipients and pensioners,” he said.
How can a person who earns R1 500 be expected to pay a debt of R80 000? That is ridiculous and needs to be scrapped completely.
Let’s just hope that immediate action will last a little longer than the period of time just before elections.
