NEC must also take blame: iLIVE
The ANC's national executive committee has blamed everyone for the state of the nation, but has not considered its own rot.
For the mining strike chaos, the blame has been placed on Julius Malema and the British media.
The NEC's tendencies are starting to resemble apartheid bunker mentality and Zanu-PF paranoia. Has it forgotten Malema is its creation? Does it not remember all its Polokwane antics that led to dirtier politics?
Has it forgotten anger is growing due to its non-delivery of services and decent education? Or that fat-cats and growing corruption disconnect it from the masses?
Even Cosatu has lost touch with the ground troops.
Yes, Lonmin is to blame for salary levels, but guess who is a Lonmin director - ANC stalwart and National Union of Mineworkers hero Cyril Ramaphosa.
The ANC will never realise the truth because that would mean looking critically within, which goes against cadre deployment and gravy train antics.
What's next? Doctoring membership numbers and votes in Mangaung to keep the current crop in power? The rot can't be healed . Cosatu is to blame for going along with this because of a hunger for power .
