Thanks to my vote, Parliament will never be the same

Now that we know and have seen that Generations’ actors are more important than mine workers because our government decided to urgently intervene in the actors’ dispute with SABC/ Producers, let us look briefly in our Parliament.

Anarchy and Breaking the law

The attitude of the lack of obedience to authority by the ANC for the past 5 years is the definition of anarchy. In this case we give a simple example of Public Protector giving Zuma 14 days to pay back the money and he didn’t even bother. This was not an allegation people, it was a finding and so it confuses me on how ANC secretary General Gwede Mantashe interprets the word anarchy. There are many other issues that displayed worst form of anarchy from ANC leaders and South Africans know about them while the DA never knew how to oppose or tackle them except talking until ANC members sleep in parliament and pocket home around R75 000 month end. The wrong doer in the Guptagate scandal we just heard is now working as an ambassador to Netherland, what do you call such things uncle Gwede? MKMVA and Jackson Mthembu do not scare us, what they said after we demanded their boss to obey the like any other citizen is anarchy and we are not threatened AT ALL.

The cause of the latest ‘chaos’ in Parliament

We cannot continue to be scared of the wrong doers and people who are just ignorant in the ANC. If you visit a doctor and tell him that when you are exposed to dust you get flu and you ask him/her: Doctor, how can I avoid flu? Then you are an idiot. You simply avoid dust so that you don’t get flu. NOW this is exactly the same as when you blame EFF for latest parliamentary disruptions. Had Zuma and his ANC answered the question properly, where was the EFF going to get power to do what they did? The so called president just answered by saying, “I have answered”, what the hell is that? He may well do that to every question if he likes and he is good at avoiding questions. He can just tell us that, I told Zweli Mkhize that answer yesterday over the phone while I was on my way to Durban and then the public just accept that is alright it means he has answered. That is nonsense. The EFF isn’t done yet with the arrogant ANC.

ANC arrogant for long

We acknowledge the DA is useless. The reason why people were not interested in parliament is because the ‘opposition’ supports NDP which is the policy of the ruling party and that makes it difficult to have opposition.

Now the ANC is trying to expel Julius Malema everywhere.

Now that is when they will see that some of the people are still in their regalia but actually voted for the EFF. We will bring half of our voters to parliament. Who expelled them when they were not doing what other parties liked or when they were not obeying the law and avoiding questions all the years? These ANC people think that we are not watching the parliament proceedings and they are in for a big ride, we aren’t done yet. How can Malema be expelled in parliament by ANC after they successfully expelled him from their party? EFF leaders are not there because of the ANC vote or employment.

As EFF member, I feel well represented in parliament

Several ANC leaders claim that those who voted EFF are ashamed, that is completely wrong statement. Our anniversary was well attended. How can we feel ashamed when out of every 10 people only 3 thinks EFF was wrong to demand Zuma to pay? Some in the ANC itself and other parties also agree with EFF and so no way we can be ashamed, we feel proud. ANC must know that as EFF member, what is currently happening in parliament is what I voted for, make no mistake on that one. This is not ANCYL that you can just tell what to do, when and how.

Speaker of parliament

There is no doubt that this one needs a serious intervention now. On that faithful day, there were many problems with the machines that select who should ask a question first. My Commander-In-Chief complained before asking a question that the speaker is the only person who sees who is next and a total number of follow up questions must be 4. The CIC said he pressed the button immediately after the original question was answered by Zuma but only to be told he as number 6 and 7 as EFF and cannot ask a question. Only the speaker sees who can ask next, is this democracy? Before that, two AGANG members were called to ask follow up questions only to find that they did not press any button, this is ridiculous. The other MP had to use someone else’s ‘thing’ (he wanted to say machine) because his ‘thing’ was not working. How do you then trust the speaker with such issues? PLEASE GIVE US SOMEONE NEUTRAL AS SPEAKER, A RETIRED JUDGE WILL DO AND WE DON’T WAT A RETARDED JUDGE OR BOTH RETIRED AND RETARDED JUDGE, WE NEED A SOBER RETIRED JUDGE TO BE SPEAKER OR PRESIDING OFFICER. YES, BECAUSE SOME OF THE JUDGES RETIRE RETARDED.

IT IS NOW UNTIL JULIUS COMES…We told you so Gwede and your people.

You get 10 thumbs up for recognizing just how utterly corrupt and useless the ANC is. But you get 11 thumbs down for hoping on Julius to make it better as it will just get worse under him.

I'd hardly call the DA useless. Think of how much rubbish the ANC would get away with if they didn't make things public. The DA aren't the main opposition for nothing.

Mmmm interesting thoughts. At least the Eff is making some noice and the useless DA does nothing!! Our country has lost all its morals and values thats the moral of the story. The previously ANC youth league coffers are empty! Facinating how the one blames the other ones for their wrong doings. One of the values our country lacks is patience. The ruling party and many individuals in South Africa took too many shortcuts to the road of prosperity. We encourage our children to study hard, finish matric and obtain a university degree . Then we hear that the head of the SABC lied about his qualifications yet today he is in a top position earning top dollar!! ! What message are we giving our children? They learn from us. Why study at all and we expect our country to improve? Politics? , People are in it for personal gain and power only! Why would rich politicians care about others? Rich people normally distance themselves from poor people and think of themselves only and how they can make themselves more rich. But then we cant only blame politicians only. We the public are to blame. We allow this to happen. Say for example a person gets murdered raped or whatever, nobody does anything. As a nation we do not unite, thats our lesson and as long as we do not unite bad things will continue to happen! My comment on this medium means nothing, we are all running in pointless never ending circles. .....we as a society need to weed out our own mistakes first and when our own slates are clean we move on and weed out the weeds. Government should fear the public! Not the other way around! Who for example took their Television set and broke it in front of the SABC and refuse to pay our broadcaster? Really..... ....... continue moaning and running in circles????

So what have you actually achieved so far?
Venicia Williams 2014-08-25 02:39:26 PM
If it wasn't for the DA, u would never have known how corrupt the zuma cabinet was...and @ least they have the dignity and morals intact!

“Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches by example… If the government becomes the law breaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man [person] to become a law unto himself…” ANARCHY is the lack of obedience to authority wena Gwede Mantashe, MKMVA and useless ANCYL. The ANC does not respect the law. They think they are smart. IS HIGH TIME THEY OBEY THE LAW. SIMPLY THERE MUST BE NO BLAME TO EFF.

you lost me when you mentioned the EFF as this party is going to be even more corrupt then the ANC if they get into power!
Craig Shaun Henry 2014-08-25 03:16:55 PM
All you did was change your vote from criminals to tsotsis
ThabangMaaake 2014-08-25 04:27:44 PM
When you say Malema cannot lead the poor when he is rich, you are basically saying if i want to encourage people to take education serious then i must be an illiterate. You cannot promise to liberate me economically when you stay in a shack, i won't believe such nonsense.
