Whites tired of DA & ANC 'empty promises' joined Malema's EFF

The perpetuated myth that the EFF would drive white people into the sea must end, EFF deputy chairman Moafrica Mabongwana said in Pretoria at the weekend.

He was welcoming the Afrikaner community of Hermanstad to the party led by Julius Malema.

The party accepted the invitation from the community to demonstrate to other black parties that it was possible to have white people rallying behind them, as they too could support what they stood for.

“There is a myth going on in the country that the EFF is anti-white, but we are here to say that it is not the case.

“We’re doing this to change that perception and to show that we are prepared to work with anyone who believes in our policies,” he said.

“We were invited by the people of this community to help bring progress to this area and this is exactly what we plan to do.”

Mabongwana said the community had told them of their problems with regards to housing, drugs and crime.

“These people were promised houses and have been waiting since 2005. Every time there are elections, the DA and ANC come here and promise to solve their issues should the residents vote for them.

“They keep telling these voters that there is one official left to sign a particular document before their wishes could come true,” said Mabongwana.

“The DA was chased away by the community. These people then invited us to come here instead and we’ve arrived... Already there is light at the end of the tunnel.”

Evelyn Buys said they had grown tired of empty promises that had not being fulfilled and decided to give the EFF a chance to help them.

“I’ve been staying in an RDP house for 13 years with my six children, but I still don’t have the title deed.

“Despite being poor, the City of Tshwane insists on wanting me to pay for the rates and taxes for a property that is not even mine,” Buys said.

“I believe that the EFF is going to help us get the city to solve our problems once and for all.

“We know its election time and people will be promising us a lot of things, but we’ve tried the other parties and they all failed.

“We have thus decided to give the EFF a chance,” said Buys.

EFF advocate Andries Nkome said they were writing to the municipality on behalf of the community demanding a meeting to provide answers on why the people had not been provided with their basic rights to housing.

“All these people need are their title deeds and for the rates and taxes to be adjusted in light of the fact that they are grant recipients and pensioners,” he said.

“How can a person who earns R1 500 be expected to pay a debt of R80 000?

“That is ridiculous and needs to be scrapped completely,” said Nkome.
