In light of the recent elections, I thought this article would be fitting although I have no idea of how many South Africans will actually read it.
I’m going start at the beginning in order to explain exactly why I’ve referred to the ANC as a cancer.
In 1994, Nelson Mandela was the first president of South Africa to be elected in a fully representative democratic election, since the country had been ruled by the Apartheid Regime from 1948 – 1994. Now I don’t have a problem with democracy but I do have a major one when criminals are elected into office. I understand that Mandela has done many ‘great’ things for South Africa, I just don’t think he was ever suited to be a president.
An example of Mandela’s ignorance and stupidity is when upon his release he made the proclamation that there will be “free housing for all”. Here’s my problem with a statement like that, you cannot have free housing because the materials required to construct these houses cost money. It was referred to as ‘low-cost housing’, low cost still means that they cost money. So where does that money come from, taxes of course and for ‘free housing’ taxes need to go up in order to subsidize the cost of the ‘free-low cost housing’. That sort of bullshit pisses me off, people need to think before blurting out idiotic statements such as that. Needless to say the proclamation was botched and there are still impoverished families waiting for their houses to this very day.
Black Economic Empowerment (BEE)
BEE is a program put into place in order to shift power from businesses owned by non-Africans into the hands of African people, being qualified doesn’t even enter into the equation. So an unskilled, unqualified African person is able to get a job even if they are unable to do the work, over a skilled non-African individual, what the fuck?! Seriously, and the result is that every facet of the business world in this country is filled with people who don’t have a clue about what it is they are doing, from supermarkets to IT, no industry is safe from this racist program but it’s okay the ANC referred to it as Positive Discrimination. Discrimination is discrimination you fucks.
There is a major energy crisis in South Africa and citizens are looking for people to blame. The ANC is at fault here, ten years ago they were warned that due to the increase in population etc that they would be facing a power shortage, ten years to come up with a solution and so instead of building another nuclear power plant like Koeberg, the ANC opted to seek out alternative solutions to nuclear power. Below is a list of just a few of the myriad of alternatives listed from http://www.thoughtleader.co.za:
Barge-mounted power plants — One of these was constructed in about a year in Sri Lanka. Yes, it’s only 60MW, but that’s a start. Gas-powered turbines — Eskom in fact already has two of these, which it runs at peak times. Why not run them all day? Because it’s expensive. Do we care? No. Eskom pays the government fat dividends at the moment and its executives big bonuses for making profits. Stop making profits, you bunch of near-sighted, pock-marked, incompetent, bat-eared fools. Make a loss and do your jobs. Domestic, alternative energy sources — Solar power is one example of practical power generation that can be localised, down to individual homes if necessary. Again, it’s costly. But who actually cares? If we have to take a big, one-off hit to sort out the power situation, then the government and Eskom must take it. And take it now. Apart from the obvious benefits in the current crisis, alternative energy is a good long-term investment anyway. Generators — Again, this is a costly option, but if it’s the only one, then it’s time to consider it. And again, this is for Eskom’s account. Drop mine off with a big, fat bunch of carnations to say you’re sorry as well.
The ANC used none of them, exactly what were they waiting for, anti-matter energy generators?!
Jacob Zuma is a fucking criminal, embroiled in a corruption related controversy after his financial advisor, Schabir Shaik, was charged with corruption and fraud. He was charged with rape in 2005, but was later acquitted. In addition, he fought a long legal battle over allegations of racketeering and corruption, after his financial advisor, Schabir Shaik, was convicted of corruption and fraud. On 6 April 2009, all charges against Zuma were dropped. Of course they were dropped, can’t have the ‘president’ looking bad.
The South African population (estimated to be 44.8 million) is made up of the following:
79.6% – African
9.1% – White
8.9% – Coloured
2.5% – Indian/Asian
So even if the combined percentage of non-African races (20.5%) were to all vote for the same party, let’s say the DA (only sensible party) we would still lose. Jacob Zuma is Zulu and yet the vast majority of Xhosa people voted for him, are you people aware that Zuma hates the Xhosa, he still uses a tribe mentality and unfortunately the Xhosa buy into the propaganda bullshit that they see on TV and vote for him. Civil war between the Xhosa and Zulu people might be in our future, which may land the 20.5% of non-Africans in the cross-fire.
The bottom line is that the ANC is a corrupt, ill-equipped organization that doesn’t know the first thing about running a country (except into the ground). To quote V from the V for Vendetta film:
“Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there?”
