Federal Congress is over Lindiwe Mazibuko back to South Africa. Shame little Lindie was brutally managed she was more clever than whites.
The real reasons Mazibuko left the DA Parliamentary Leadership by Gareth van Onselen ON SUNDAY Democratic Alliance (DA) Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko announced she would not be returning to Parliament post election. She set out her reasoning in an article for the Sunday Times newspaper, in which she argued she intended to study abroad in order to broaden her prospects. She suggested she might return to the DA at some point in the future. From that statement, a singular fact is significant: faced with the prospect of leading a growing party in the National Assembly as the constitutionally recognised leader of the opposition, Mazibuko chose instead to return to university. The loss to the DA and South Africa is profound. Mazibuko was a superstar. How is it that the DA has come to lose someone who embodied all its best qualities? To answer that question, one needs to better understand the current internal condition of the party. Elections, particularly those with that result in growth, are vital to a ...
Helen Zille & the Democratic Alliance should be reminded that many voters of the in South Africa saw the face Lindiwe Mazibuko
YCLSA National Committee Statement Sunday, May 18, 2014 The 3rd Congress National Committee of the Young Communist League of South Africa (uFasimba) met in its 9th Plenary Session in Johannesburg over the weekend. This was the first ordinary plenary session of the National Committee following our country’s 5th democratic general election held last Wednesday, May 7th. The National Committee therefore conducted an assessment of our election campaign to secure a decisive victory for the African National Congress (ANC) and reflected on the election outcome, in addition to its standing agenda items – the Political, Organisational and Financial reports. The National Committee congratulated the ANC for a decisive electoral victory and the many of its members and volunteers who campaigned tirelessly to deliver this victory. The ANC has won a massive 11, 436, 921 votes out of a total 18, 402, 497 valid votes cast, securing a decisive 62.15% majority. There is a landslide difference between the ANC and the offi ...
I bet Mbali Ntuli and Lindiwe Mazibuko will vote ANC today. As we move South Africa forward!
Not to racialize things but I can't help but to get the feeling that black people, specifically the youth, who show support and vote for the DA are just societal misfits whose major pre-occupation is their struggle to belong. Honestly, you have an organization (DA) who in the last election had 5% of their votes coming from blacks yet when they embark on a march to Luthuli House it's 99.9% black. This is an organization that historically viewed and continues to view black people as political pawns that are good for nothing but to advance their capitalistic and racially exploitive interests. The dream of a truly democratic South Africa that belongs to all who live in it "will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued but never attained" if the likes of Lindiwe Mazibuko and Maimane are even slightly taken to heart. Lindiwe Mazibuko, like mam' Ramphele, will grow politically to become a directionless, sophisticated tea-girl of the Madam(white minority monopoly capital) just like the politically confused le ...
Zuma likely to set positive tone for coming elections - 10/02/2014 14:30:00 By Natasha Marrian President Jacob Zuma will deliver his final state of the nation address of South Africa’s fourth democratic Parliament on Thursday. The speech is set to be used as an opportunity to highlight the achievements of South Africa’s first 20 years of democracy and the progress made under African National Congress (ANC) rule. Zuma announced the election date‚ May 7‚ on Friday‚ thrusting South Africa and its political parties into full campaign mode. He and the governing party have been at pains to spread the message that South Africa has a good story to tell. This comes amid rising frustration over poor service delivery. While an increase in service delivery protests are a common feature ahead of elections‚ the recent protests‚ particularly in Gauteng‚ South Africa’s and Africa’s economic hub‚ have increasingly turned violent. On Saturday‚ two Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) voting statio ...
I was not a fan of Dr Ramphela when she started AGANG. Her move to join DA ddnt surprize me. She has no stance, no backbone, no vision. All she sees in South Africa is an opportunuty 2 flourish as a female politician, jst like her new boss Helen Zille. I dislike both of them. And yeah their cousin Patricia De Lille. Oh I almost 4got, I also dislike their maid Lindiwe Mazibuko. We r not going 2 leave our ANC. All we're gonna do is change and keep building our ANC. Viva ANC Viva.
Helen Zillle, Mamphela Ramphele, Paricia de Lille and Lindiwe Mazibuko, South Africa's own “Golden Girls”! The original 'Golden Girls' were three middle aged woman and one geriatric old lady. Our 'Golden Girls' are three middle aged woman, and one youngster!
Agang SA leader Mamphela Ramphele said on Tuesday she would be the DA's presidential candidate in the general elections in a bid to consign race politics to the dustbin. Ramphele said: "This is a historic moment. We are going to take away the excuse of race and challenge the ANC to be judged on its performance. "We are taking away that race card and putting it in the dustbin." She added that she was "honoured" to accept the DA's invitation to front its campaign, saying: "I believe that this decision is in the best interests of South Africa as we head into turbulent waters." Ramphele, who is best known as an academic and former Black Consciousness activist, spoke after Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille announced the move, ending speculation over a merger. "I can announce today that Dr Mamphela Ramphele has accepted the DA's invitation to stand as our presidential candidate in the 2014 general election." Zille said she had "badgered" Ramphele for years to front the DA's drive to expand its power base b ...
After all is said and done, Dr Ramphele will not be the president of South Africa after the elections - Helen Zille will still be the leader of DA and possibly the Premier of the Western Cape; Lindiwe Mazibuko will be the leader of the DA in parliament and the good Dr an ordinary member of parliament under the leadership of Zille and Mazibuko. So, isn't the presidential candidature a token position?
Hellen Zille just showed the whole of South Africa how disrespective she is towards our Black community I mean just because her fellow white students didn't do well now results of our Black students have to be investigated?.we'll never make sense to her and her fellow people to her we're just pawns for her dirty political games as she managed to turn Lindiwe Mazibuko against her own people!
PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — A government investigation into the use of state resources to upgrade South African President Jacob Zuma's rural private home found some irregularities but excused the construction of features like a chicken run as being motivated by security concerns. The leader of the major opposition party in Parliament, Lindiwe Mazibuko, dubbed the report "a bungle" and accused the government of trying to "pull the wool over the public's eye." The government acknowledged it paid $21 million to upgrade the rural homestead but said it was all for security. The investigation was one of two probes conducted into allegations that state funds were used to pay for refurbishments, including a swimming pool, a shop and dwellings for relatives at Zuma's Nkandla homestead. A separate investigation was being conducted by the Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, whose position is the equivalent of that of an ombudsman. Her report is expected to be made public by mid-January. Public Works Minister Thula ...
Suspended Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi launched an attack on President Jacob Zuma on Wednesday, saying his administration spectacularly failed to reverse the crisis of unemployment in the country and was turning a blind eye on increasing corruption within government. Addressing a memorial lecture of the late National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) president Mtutuzeli Tom in Boksburg, Vavi questioned the spending of over R200-million in upgrading Zuma's homestead in Nkandla. He also questioned the spending of R65-million on security upgrades of ministers' homes in Cape Town. "As you were preparing for this [Numsa special] congress, the Public Protector issued two damning reports: one on the former minister of communications and the other one on the minister of agriculture. We are aware of a third report that will be released in January. While we are not yet aware of her recommendations, there is no dispute over the fact that well over R200-million was spent on upgrading the secur ...

Watching last night's Question Time tjer! People are not mincing their words. When a nation has had enough they've had enough. We hope the government is taking all this into consideration. We all know what happens when people's cries fall on deaf ears, we can only pray and hope that our ruling party will do the right thing to prevent certain events from happening. South Africa is a beautiful country and needs a great leader to keep it that way. It's really sad to watch as more and more embarrassing events unfold, the past week has revealed our country's instability. Now that the peacemaker is resting, our nation should work on restoring what he faught for. Having said that, Lindiwe Mazibuko is very well spoken. I still love my ANC. ❤️
Replying to the debate on the Presidency’s Budget Vote in June this year, President Jacob Zuma said something which those who are interested in a credible narrative of our past, present and future should say louder than the decibels permitted to a sitting President.   Prompted by the comments of the Democratic Alliance’s Parliamentary Leader, Lindiwe Mazibuko, Zuma protested the distortion of President Nelson Mandela’s image and politics.   He told Mazibuko that she and her party, should also “support what he (Mandela) stood for and what he went to prison for and what he said over the years” and objected to the projection of Mandela as “the only nice ANC man,” arguing that appraisal “must not focus only on Madiba the first President of a democratic South Africa who implemented ANC policies of reconciliation and transformation.”   Instead of a disconnect, there was and is consistency between “Madiba the volunteer-in-chief of the defiance campaign, Madiba the Umkhonto weSizwe comman ...
Have just watched last night's Question Time, which was filmed in South Africa. Very interesting debate, I do worry for their future as the ANC seems extremely impotent. However I am truly amazed by the MP Lindiwe Mazibuko, who spoke so eloquently and didn't pull any punches. I sincerely hope she is the future leader.
Democratic Alliance SA Today by Helen Zille Leader of the DA SA Today: A plane crash that should have been avoided 7 November 2013 Release: immediate The debate in the media over the past ten days has revealed the depth of confusion regarding the DA’s position on affirmative action. I take responsibility for this. The purpose of this newsletter is to make our position unambiguously clear. In a memorandum to the Parliamentary Leadership in May, I set out the principles that guide our approach to Black Economic Empowerment and Employment Equity and asked our parliamentary caucus to use them as the basis for judgment on these bills. These principles are not new. Indeed they have been our guiding principles on BEE for two decades. And they will continue to be. 1. We support the need to redress the legacy of apartheid. 2. The best way is through sustained job-creating economic growth, education and skills-training aligned to the needs of the economy. 3. South Africa has spent at least R500-billion on narrow ...
Obama in South Africa : The ANC refused a request by Lindiwe Mazibuko, the Parliamentary Leader of the opposition, the Democratic Alliance, to call Parliament from its mid-year recess to allow Obama to address the National Assembly. “The rebuff reflects in part the strong opposition to American foreign policy from within the ANC’s ranks and those of its alliance partners. Trade Union federation Cosatu will participate in a protest against Obama’s visit on Friday in Pretoria. “Cosatu joins the millions of people and workers the world over, particularly on the African continent and in South Africa, who are outraged at the horrifying record of US foreign policy in the world,” the Trade Union federation said, as it called on its members to join the protests against Obama’s foreign policy during his visit. The South African Communist Party, another of the ANC’s alliance partners, will join the march to the US Embassy on Friday to present a memorandum of demands “calling for the urgent release o ...

Lindiwe Mazibuko of South Africa's Democratic Alliance says land reform could be tackled more effectively.
Bongane Kenny is doing what countless other South Africans are doing: to challenge the moral and legal authority of the leadership believing that they themselves are moral lighthouses with exclusive claim & right to pronounce on the Idea of South Africa. Therefore, there is no qualitative difference (if at all anything new) between Kenny Kunene, Lindiwe Mazibuko, Peter Mulder (and his mad claims about land ownership), Malema, Buthelezi (who denies IFP attrocities), De Klerk (who continue to show his true racist colours) and countless others who will never accept a leadership that doesn't serve their immediate interests or that doesn't manifest the image of a "polished Englishman". To this we must recall what both Adam Smith and Karl Marx said about the "discovery" and colonisation of SA by the Europeans. They said these events marked the rewriting of World History & the trajectory of capitalism
By iafrica.com Newly appointed ANC Chief Whip Stone Sizani turned up the heat in the National Assembly on Thursday with a call for a tax on all fallow farm land in South Africa. Speaking at the end of a debate marking the centenary of the infamous 1913 Natives Land Act, he appealed to Land Reform Minister Gugile Nkwinti to "place a ceiling" on land ownership, with surplus land released to those who needed it. In his first speech before the House since assuming his new office earlier in the day, Sizani provoked an outcry when he appealed to Democratic Alliance Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko to "please talk to your farmers". These farmers were "willing to release [for redistribution] marginal land; they are not willing to release Stellenbosch", he said. He then referred to warders on Robben Island during the apartheid era, who had boasted to political prisoners at the time "that you can take South Africa, but you [can] never have Stellenbosch". This caused an eruption of protests and shouts from oppo ...
Zuma on the Guptas: My pals, my business President Jacob Zuma yesterday defended his controversial friendship with the Gupta family, telling the National Assembly that he had every right to be friendly with the powerful business family. He also told MPs that the Gupta family had every right, as had allcitizens, to have direct contact with ministers in his cabinet. Opposition MPs took turns at taking Zuma to task about his relationship with the family. The Guptas landed a private jet carrying their wedding guests at Waterkloof Air Force Base, Pretoria, without valid authorisation. DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko asked Zuma to explain why some of his ministers had direct contact with the Guptas. Zuma said this was in line with the government's policy of being accessible to its citizens. "Honourable member, it is because any member of the public within South Africa and our borders is free to contact members of my cabinet, the executive or the public direct. It is in line with the ethos of our admini ...
MEDIA FURORE ON THE MAZIBUKO MATTER: STATEMENT BY MMAMOLOKO KUBAYI, ACTING Deputy Chief Whip OF THE ANC IN PARLIAMENT 17 June 2013 I have noted a furore driven by certain sections of the media regarding comments made last week during the budget votes on Parliament and the Presidency by two ANC Members of Parliament, John Jeffery and Buti Manamela. Jeffrey’s statement: Jeffery has since voluntarily, without being forced by the presiding officers to do so, indicated that he will withdraw his pun regarding the Leader of the Opposition’s, Lindiwe Mazibuko. He had said that “while the hon. Mazibuko may be a person of substantial weight, her stature is questionable”. Because this pun is ambiguous and is open to various interpretations, including possible reference to Mazibuko’s body, Jeffery saw it appropriate that he should not only withdraw but personally apologise to Mazibuko. For many years, Jeffery fought for the attainment of a non-racial, non-sexist and democratic South Africa. It is because of ...
Mazibuko: Zuma has not earned respect By SAPA Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has not earned respect from the citizens of South Africa and political parties, DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said on Monday. “To earn our respect, he (Zuma) must deliver on the promise of employment for young people,” Mazibuko said on the sidelines of the Democratic Alliance's rally in Alexandra north of Johannesburg. “He must run a government that is clean, that delivers to the people instead of collecting wealth for itself and must be accountable and transparent.” Mazibuko said respect for a democratically elected leaders had to be earned and was not a “given”. She said Zuma had failed to earn respect from opposition parties and the people of South Africa as he built “a palace” for himself in Nkandla and “allowed” a jet chartered by the Gupta family to land at the Waterkloof Air Force Base. “I will always be polite to President Zuma, that is my job as a human being and as a parliamentarian ...
Buti Manamela said (Parliament): Some people blamed President Jacob Zuma for everything that went wrong in South Africa, "Flights get delayed, blame Zuma. The weather is bad, blame Zuma. The rand is too weak, blame Zuma. There's a cloud on Table Mountain, blame Zuma. The honourable Lindiwe Mazibuko has bad fashion taste and has been arrested by the fashion police, blame Zuma" it's cold today, I also blame Zuma. Lol!
'Opposition to blame for weak rand' By Craig Dodds Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma has hit back at opposition leaders who tried to pin the blame for the flagging economy on him, turning the tables by suggesting their negative views were hurting the country. Responding to the debate on his Presidency budget speech on Wednesday, Zuma said it had taken place at “a critical time”. “There is still no end in sight to the global financial crisis and economic growth still seems a bit elusive. We are therefore going through a period that requires unity and common purpose,” he said. On Wednesday, DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko and Cope leader Mosiuoa Lekota blamed the country’s crisis of confidence on Zuma’s weak leadership. Mazibuko said a run on the rand shortly after a speech Zuma gave in a bid to reassure the markets showed they had “reached the same conclusion that the rest of South Africa reached some time ago: they have no confidence in the president of the Republic”. Zuma said on ...
"I appeal directly to the governing party to spare our country any future damage by not allowing President Jacob Zuma to contest the 2014 general election. South Africa cannot afford one more lost year. If we are consigned to another six years of failed leadership, South Africa may never recover the lost ground. In the life of a nation, rarely has a leader been so personally responsible for setting into motion a chain of crises as this president is. Every major crisis of the last year could have been avoided if the president had exercised principled and selfless leadership." (Opposition Democratic Alliance Parliamentary Leader, Lindiwe Mazibuko, responding to the President's budget vote speech) Exaggerated or not, it seems everything Zuma touches turns to dust. We have much reason to think so. Though how fair is this assessment? Are you South African? What things can he be credited with doing well, particularly on the public policy front? See link:

Cape Town - A request by the DA to have US president Barack Obama address a joint sitting of parliament during his visit to Cape Town has been denied. Obama’s Africa visit starts on June 26 and his stop-off in South Africa will be his first visit to the country as head of state. DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko made the request for the parliamentary address earlier this week. But the ANC quickly lashed out, labelling the address a publicity stunt. This morning, parliamentary spokesman Luzuko Jacobs announced that the joint sitting was not feasible. “Firstly, as a rule, joint sittings to enable a visiting head of state to address parliament are requested by the president.” He also added that parliament would be in recess from June 24 to July 19 and its members had other engagements during this time. On those grounds, National Assembly speakerMax Sisulu and National Council of Provinces chairman Mninwa Mahlangu denied the request. kieran.leggArgus

"Our message is clear: South Africa is a great country being let down by a weak President. He is the wrong man for these times." - Lindiwe Mazibuko, Parliamentary Leader of the Democratic Alliance 19 February 2013
"It's not a perfect relationship, but we're talking," Democratic Alliance Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said during a press conference on Friday, following President South Africa's opposition parties are investigating the possibility of contesting the 2014 general elections under one political umbrella. Jacob Zuma's State Of The Nation address on Thursday. "The important thing is the critical reality that we need to work together." The DA, Congress of the People (Cope), Independent Democrats, African Christian Democratic Party, Freedom Front Plus, Inkhatha Freedom Party (IFP), United Christian Democratic Party, Pan Africanist Congress and Azanian People's Organisation all form part of the "multiparty opposition forum" that seeks to unseat the ruling ANC in next year's election. Using the president's address as a point of departure, the group said the time had come for South Africa to experience political change.

Spread, share, pass on, whatever. but let's get this out there in support of a new Democratic government, and hopefully speed up the process! "South Africa's opposition Democratic Alliance plans to give the ruling ANC a serious black eye in the 2014 elections by winning up to 30 percent of the vote, a party leader has told AFP: "We are aiming for 30 percent," said Lindiwe Mazibuko, the DA's Parliamentary Leader and the woman tipped by many to one day lead the opposition. "I suspect that we will get between 25 and 30 on a sunny day, and between 20 and 25 if it's a particularly uphill battle," she said, acknowledging a likely ANC victory. At the 2009 elections the DA got 16 percent of the vote, but hit nearly 25 percent in 2011 local elections. The ANC has swept all post-apartheid polls and won nearly two thirds of votes in the last national election. An ANC loss in 2014 would be a political upset that would eclipse even Harry Truman's victory over Thomas Dewey in the 1948 US presidential elections. But ami ...
South African opposition leader, Lindiwe Mazibuko, discusses rape in South Africa with Christiane Amanpour.
Lindiwe Mazibuko, Parliamentary Leader for the opposition the Democratic Alliance, will be speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour this evening on DSTV Channel 401 at 22:00pm tonight, about the epidemic of rape and violence against women in South Africa
I am very much concerned about DA and Lindiwe Mazibuko the Parliamentary Leader, yesterday I saw a clip on news whereby a delegation had gone to Kwazulu Natal to talk to elderly rape survivors. What will such a visit benefit the rape survivors and their families, they claim that they wanted to hear their stories and so what. I believe politics is being abused by the opposition parties in South Africa. I think resources can be channeled to formulating policies that will compete against the ruling party in 2014. I salute the community in Kwazulu Natal that blocked the DA delegation from interviewing those who were affected by such excruciating crimes, lets respect our elderly and at the same time condemn to the highest order the perpetrators of such crime and they must be sentenced harshly and never get away with murder.
"When one woman is raped every 17 seconds in South Africa, we cannot afford to waste a single second longer being politically correct. Too many women have been raped while South Africans tip-toe around what the real issues are. Our history of oppression and conflict, which our resilient province has felt the hardest, has made violence acceptable in too many of our communities. We need to change this. The reconciliation project which former President Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu started for us all in 1994 is not just about healing the divide between white and black South Africans, but also about healing the wounds which our violent past bestowed onto our communities and households. This change will only be brought about by changing men’s hearts and minds. Starting with the top downwards, we must strive to build a society in which all women can safely navigate their own bodies, and live as equals to men. Our constitution promised this. Men who think it is their right to treat women like obje ...
.. President Jacob Zuma should ignore the open letter written by DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko, the office of the ANC Chief Whip said on Wednesday. "We have no interest in repeating the ANC's clarifications on the wild allegations published in the media, which Ms Mazibuko parroted in her letter," Mathole Motshekga said in a statement. "We therefore hope that the president will ignore her nonsensical letter with the contempt it deserves." On Wednesday, Mazibuko wrote an open letter to Zuma calling on him to "demonstrate the leadership" required of him. "He must immediately put a stop to the ANC's campaign to discourage investment and destroy jobs through aggressive and irresponsible language and conduct," the letter read. "While Mr Zuma is busy selling South Africa as an investor-friendly market at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, his actions back home, and those of the party he leads, are working towards the opposite goal." However, Motshekga said the letter contained "wild and spurious ...

If you want to Change and Guarantees in South Africa vote DA and follow Helen Zille and Lindiwe Mazibuko.
Helen Zille and Lindiwe Mazibuko are desperate to govern South Africa, they are busy attending stupid issue like "vote of no confidence against JZ". I rather die poor with the corrupted ANC officials than voting DA into the government under the leadership of Helen Zille and Lindiwe Mazibuko, they are useless and selfish leaders who are trying confuse people from what they believe. DA is a BIG NO NO to me.
Lindiwe must shut her mouth. Every time I hear Lindiwe Mazibuko`s voice I realise just how weak this country has become. She was not even born in South Africa but in Swaziland. She was never involved in the Struggle but wants to dictate to South Africans!She is being used by Madam Zille who was living large in the apartheid era. It also shows that some people in this country hate our president. Lekota, Buthelezi and others are even prepared to join forces with racist Zille to fight Msholozi. They should be ashamed of themselves. Mazibuko has a big mouth and she abuses our freedom of expression to disrespect her elders. President Zuma fought for that freedom. She should just shut up or go back to Swaziland and libarate the poor people there.
THE lack of detailed information about the money being spent on President Jacob Zuma’s home in Nkandla and the growing controversy in the matter lead one to consider more carefully why R250m of state funds were needed for the upgrade. For the past two weeks, I have listened to the Democratic Alliance (DA) and the African National Congress (ANC) trying to explain why the money was either misspent or why it was not. It has been hard to find common ground, yet I have found myself sympathising with Zuma’s exasperation. Whether this will be borne out by the investigations into the matter by the Public Protector and the auditor-general on the instruction of the Department of Public Works remains to be seen. The issue is of political importance for South Africa given the problems of corruption and poverty and one might have expected Zuma to have made an example of how such a project could be accomplished transparently. But Nkandla is in KwaZulu-Natal, where political tension runs high and politicians are sti ...
The Golden girl, Lindiwe Mazibuko misleads the country once again. Why are these people sowing so much confusion in our country kanti.

"President Jacob Zuma lacks both the leadership and determination to turn South Africa into a high-growth economy" - Lindiwe Mazibuko
Lindiwe Mazibuko, only 32 years old, and already Parliamentary Leader for the opposition Democratic Alliance in South Africa !
Johannesburg - The Democratic Alliance (DA) wants the Public Protector to probe allegations that R203m of taxpayers' money would be used in the revamping of President Jacob Zuma's iNkandla homestead, the party said on Sunday. "Reports that the department of public works will be spending millions on Zuma’s private homestead is a serious abuse of taxpayers’ money by a department which is failing in almost every other key responsibility," DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said in a statement. "This expenditure by public works represents a serious confusion by the president and the minister of public works as to what the pressing priorities for South Africa are," she added. The DA's outrage came after a report in the City Press stated that Zuma would only be footing five percent of the bill, which amounted to around R10.6m. Previous reports suggested that Zuma would pay for most of the revamping. "[We] will not allow for this to go unanswered," said Mazibuko. She said she wanted the public protecto ...

"The DA is the fastest growing political party in South Africa. It is also the youngest. Let us not forget that Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo were young when they challenged the ANC structure of their day." - Lindiwe Mazibuko, DA Parliamentary Leader

Cape Town - The DA plans to make it easier for people to start their own businesses to grow employment, its leaders said on Monday. "We believe that South Africa's failure to grow the economy and create jobs is, in part, a failure to cultivate a nation of entrepreneurs," Democratic Alliance Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko said in Cape Town. Mazibuko and her fellow MPs blamed the ANC for strangling citizens' entrepreneurial spirit through red-tape. The party was unveiling its plan "Building a Nation of Entrepreneurs" - part three of a five part strategy on jobs and growth. It outlined how the party intended ensuring small, medium, and micro enterprises (SMMEs) get off the ground and thrive. Mazibuko gave several examples of how small businesses could drive job creation. "In the United States, SMMEs have created 80% of new jobs over the last 10 years, and form 98% of all employer firms," she said. "In India, the figure is 90%. In Ghana, it is estimated that 92% of all the businesses in the country are ...
Morning guys, hope u all doin well cause I'm not. I've been watching this woman very close with her cheap political scores and I said 2 myself u know 1 of these days this woman if we r not watching her close.bcause they have claimed, our Madiba, we kept quite, and also claimed our Chris Hani, again we murmured, and ventured into our struggle songs, we sang along chanting rain bow nation, and nation building, they have claimed our Freedom chapter, and we said nobody has a monopoly of the Congress of the People, today we have COPE. Now they are moving to our NDR, through Job's campaign, they have moved into our Logos [ask Goodman Gallery] we said freedom of expression and artistic freedom.Not so long ago, they had one black member, today they have Lindiwe Mazibuko and others.In the much to COSATU, we witness more black numbers, If we continue in this way we may wake up with Zille as the President of South Africa, unless we do our revolutionary work now as tomorrow maybe too late. Happy Friday.AMANDLA!!!
Excuse me sounding ignorant: what is it that Baleka Mbete, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, Angie Motshega, Helen Zille, Lindiwe Mazibuko, Patricia De Lille, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, Mamphela Ramphele, Ayanda Dlodlo, Lindiwe Zulu, Cheryl Carolus, Diane Kohler-Barnad, Thandi Modise have done to advance South Africa's people? Why should I look up to this women as potential role models for my nieces?
Zuma passes the buck on Mdluli - Lindiwe Mazibuko Lindiwe Mazibuko 22 May 2012 DA PL says President trying to dodge responsibility on key issues of state Zuma's ‘Deurmekaar' Presidency: A President in office, but not in power Today, President Zuma came to Parliament to answer questions from Members of Parliament. This is an opportunity to not only for the President be held to account by the legislature, but also for him to provide leadership and vision for the country in dealing with the important issues of the day. The President failed dismally on both counts. South Africa, today, has a President in office, but not in power. In response to my question on the reinstatement of Richard Mdluli, the President denied all responsibility for his reinstatement, passing the buck to the ‘departmental officials' and the Minister of Police. He also failed to answer the question of whether Richard Mdluli is a fit and proper person to hold such a senior position in the SAPS. The President is the Head of the Execut ...
U can see that Lindiwe Mazibuko has been instructed on what to say to make sure that she delivers her bosses' messages across without caring whether it's her turn to talk or not. She must learn to shut up and listen or ask madam to buy her her own talk show where she can just keep gaaning aan about how much Helen Zille is such a gift to South Africa
Irvin Jim accuses Lindiwe Mazibuko of mincing issues once it comes to education crisis in South Africa as its challenges cannot be put at the door step of SADTU.
This moron spoiled Brett has not just crossed the line. He demonstrated hatred of African Leaders by Stupid white liberals. This to me is prove that Reconciliation does not mean anything to many white Liberals. They only talk reconciliation when it suits them and to protect their own rights and interest. I am yet to see one white Artist or Politician say enough its enough on this kind of insults directed to the Black Majority in South Africa. I am yet to see Hellen Zille and Lindiwe Mazibuko as Leaders, really providing Leadership on this one. They should have been the first once to denounce this kind of behavior by Spoiled Brett Murray. I see Brett as a real Brett and an obstacle to Reconciliation. Artists like him do not deserve any constitutional protection. They should be left in the cold and not entertained at all. The Good man Gallery should be boycotted and closed down for refusing to remove the painting because by refusing to remove it they are automatically pledging their support and agreeing wit ...
The hostility displayed by Cosatu members during a DA march in the Johannesburg city centre on Tuesday was justified, the Trade Union federation said. "DA policies... will create no new jobs... and [will] lead to the impoverishment and enslavement of workers and [an] economic meltdown for South Africa," spokesperson Patrick Craven said in a statement. "That is why workers are so hostile towards [DA leader] Helen Zille's party and want to express their justified anger, most especially when there are confronted on the street outside their federation's head office," he said. Earlier on Tuesday, police used teargas and water cannons to disperse Congress of SA Trade Union members who stopped the Democratic Alliance from protesting outside its headquarters. The DA wanted Cosatu to stop stonewalling a government youth wage subsidy which it believes will create thousands of new jobs for young people. The DA march, headed by Zille, youth leader Makashule Gana, Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko and national spo ...
