Mpumalanga ANC sews racial division in Legislature

By: Jane Sithole, MPL DA Chief Whip in the Mpumalanga Legislature During a sitting of the Mpumalanga Legislature on 21 April 2015, the Chief Whip of the ANC, Honourable Musa Mkhatshwa expressed his disappointment that 98% of the people taking part in the DA March for Women’s Rights, were black South Africans. (Click here for video clip) The ANC continues to divide South Africa along racial lines. ANC rantings about race show their fear that a majority of South Africans, no matter their race, are finding their home in the DA. The DA stands proud of the enormous support we have from South Africans of all races. It is clear that the ANC struggles to understand the concept of transformation and democracy. Transformation is not a banner for the ANC to divide races into political camps. Corruption, empty promises and self-enrichment undermine the values of any institution and the ANC is feeling that across South Africa. This move by the ANC Chief Whip is short sighted and it is not in any way, strengthening unity in our Province . Racial remarks and racial divisiveness doesn’t promote unity and tolerance amongst our people. Many Black South Africans are proud members of the Democratic Alliance, as it is their freedom to be. This is a freedom that many before have lived and died to achieve. The sacrifices they made gave each and every South African the freedom not only to vote, but to choose their political affiliation. Our duty should be to transform South Africa and the society at large. We should promote and protect the fundamental freedom of all citizens and our goal should be to build a nation where all people live and experience the freedom of democracy. The DA will continue to grow in every ward, city, province and across South Africa as a whole. We will continue to embrace democracy and to welcome every member of society, on our journey to building an inclusive future for all South Africans.
