MyElectionManifesto: Avoiding the Zimbabwe path

20 Mar 2019, 13:56 GMT+10

Do not vote for the ANC or EFF. They cannot be trusted and this will:

- lead to huge disinvestment

- weaken the Rand R20/$

- increase petrol price R30/L

- collapse tertiary institutions

- make land valueless

- make it impossible for banks to give bonds for property

- lead to huge job losses in the mining industry

- lead to huge job losses at state owned enterprises (SOEs)

- collapse Eskom

- increase riots and looting of shops

Motivation for above:

Where is Julius going to get the money to pay those huge grants and salaries? We cannot afford the failing SOEs, where is Julius going to get the money to fund these promises? How much money did he take through money laundering from VBS bank? He is a crook, you cannot trust him.

With global warming and continued droughts and with the banks unwilling to give the new farmers loans for land (that belongs to the state), we will be importing food and end up like Zimbabwe.

Where did Cyril Ramaphosa get all his millions? He paid more than R17m for a buffalo at a game auction! And the years that he was deputy president he was totally unaware of the Zuma Gupta robbery?

Zimbabwe put their faith in a deputy president of the ruling Zanu-PF party. He was deputy president for 25 years. The country suffered from food shortages, US sanctions, extreme poverty and social problems.

Once the corruption has set in it is impossible for a party to cleanse itself.

There are four party leaders that I believe you can trust: Mosiuoa Lekota, Pieter Groenewald, Patricia de Lille and Bantu Holomisa. I wanted to include the DA leader but he is strategically stupid.

South Africa has become a valueless and Godless society. We must go on our knees and pray. Read Proverbs 3: 5-6. That is my manifesto.

The thoughtless are seldom wordless.
