This story gives a little glimpse into the future I think, if the ANC ever loses its position as leader of the national government.
But a closer look, and you see that the DA led coalition is just reaping a harvest sown by the ANC...Thousands of African National Congress (ANC) demonstrators gathered at the civic centre in Cape Town on Wednesday to protest against the Democratic Alliance-led (DA) city council.
"March against DA council's high rates, service cut-offs, pink letters and evictions," read a pamphlet distributed to the protesters, who had marched through the streets of central Cape Town to the civic centre.
In attendance at the heavily policed protest were various members of the ANC provincial government, including Premier Ebrahim Rasool.
"This is the Cape Town that we need," Rasool told the crowd. "Let Africans and coloureds unite because we are all suffering under the pink slip. Let Muslim and Christian unite because everyone is suffering under the pink slip."
Buyiswa racked up R10 000.00 in water arrears only since the DA coalition took over administration? Hard to believe.Buyiswa Tsholoba, from Kwezapark in Khayelitsha, said she was being asked to pay R10 000 in water arrears. "I don't even have money to buy half a loaf of bread, so where must I get R10 000?" If her debt were cancelled, she would be willing to "pay R100 or R200 a month", she said.
And then we have the hypocracy...
