The DA's Helen Zille now finds it convenient to 'abstain' from commenting on the Israeli massacre of Palestinians because she feels that outside problems should not cause friction amongst Muslims and Jews in South Africa. Since when Godzilla! I have never loved or intended to be friendly with any Zionist! Since when Godzille! you have never rejected 'South African' Zionists from holding duel citizenship and being active members of the IDF! Since when Godzille! when your party has a 'shadow' Minister of Foreign Affairs that you now conveniently do not get involved in foreign matters! Godzille! you refusal to comment is a sufficient answer to declare where you stand! CONGRATULATIONS! to all the Muslims DA voters! you truly helped your fellow human beings in Palestine!!!
What are you guys doing in South Africa? I left the country 4 days ago and the following has happened already: 1. Phumzile van Damme is labelled a liar and fraud, Helen Zille says nothing; 2. DA copies the EFF makarapa's, that's after Maimane was toasted in the first week of the 5th Parliament 3. Agang SA's Mamphela Ramphele is kicked out of her own party. Go back to academics Doc. 4. ANC Gauteng wants a review of Etolls. Seems as if I can do business with David Makhura and Paul Mashatile. 5. Thulisile "Tjovoo" Simelane dies at 34. RIP Tjovoo, we will miss you 6. 13 Initiates have died already. Lets hope the number will not increase like in the previous years. 7. NUMSA strikes. Lets hope the strike will not take 5 months. 8. Oscar is back in court. Let's hope the Steenkamp Family will have the strength to deal with the second round and that justice will be done for Reeva. And please people, stop messing up our country while we are away. We want to be part of building that country. Siyabuya.
Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema labelled DA leader Helen Zille "the Number One racist in South Africa".
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 ...

With about 70% of the results in, the ANC has 63% of the vote followed by the Democratic Alliance on 22%. The ANC is widely expected to return to power although analysts say anything less than 60% of the vote for the party will be seen as a major upset.

Proportion of black top bosses has dropped since 2009 Sapa | 09 April, 2014 Less than 20 percent of South Africa's top management positions are occupied by black Africans, the 14th Commission for Employment Equity's report found. Share Article: Unveiling the report in Sandton, Johannesburg, on Wednesday, Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant said South Africa introduced Employment Equity legislation to address racial exclusion in the labour market under apartheid. "It may sound nasty but the highest positions for most black people, particularly Africans, back then would have been 'head garden boy' and 'head tea girl'. "...Employment Equity is... not only a moral and human rights imperative; it is also a pre-condition for this country's development, achievement and sustainability of global competitiveness." The report, released on Wednesday, found a "staggered and inconsistent" pattern in the promotion of designated groups to top management. The 2013 results showed 19.8 percent of workers at this level were bla ...

Mamphele Ramphele is the most pretentious politician in South Africa. She is on par with Helen Zille, who similingly only has one strategy & that is a consistent smear campaign on the ANC. As if ANC politicians cannot be removed (or for presidents) impeached. Like seriously? All these women do is cry over what the ANC isn't doing instead of giving out solutions. Ladies we can see the problem. It is funny though, isn't it.
SOUTH AFRICA: ANCYL wades in on Zille 'twar' - The ANC Youth League has expressed shock at DA leader Helen Zille's...
The Democratic Alliance (DA) launched its elections manifesto at the Polokwane Show Grounds in Limpopo on Sunday. DA leader Helen Zille said life in the democratic South Africa is better than it was under apartheid but progress made in the past 20 years is being reversed under Jacob Zuma’s leadership. She urged South African’s to vote DA in the upcoming election to continue the good progress previously gained under the leadership of Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki. “More and more, it seems that the best jobs and opportunities go to people with political connections. They are the insiders who benefit at the expense of the outsiders. Public money that should be used for services to the poor is being wasted on corrupt projects like President Zuma’s private house at Nkandla,” said Zille. On corruption The DA would: -save R30 billion per year by cutting corruption and firing corrupt officials. - Introduce a constituency-based electoral system to make MPs more accountable. - Speed up the delivery of ** ...
The Democratic Alliance youth leader Mbali Ntuli is quoted to have said, "The ANC of today is not the same the ANC of yesteryears..." She apparently continued, "We must thank the ANC for getting us out of apartheid." Helen Zille said on radio this morning, "The early days of democracy under Presidents Mandela and Mbeki showed where South Africa was going...and there was a better story to tell." Really? Fight Back campaign did not show that the DA liked what it saw. Madam Zille blames the party's elective conference in 2007 for the down slide. Others also pounce on the history of the ANC as if it were a carcass left for feasting by hyenas and scavengers. Julius Malema and Terror Lekota. I don't see how it helps me cause to always talk about what is happening in my neighbor's house. I should talk about myself first before I hurl stones... My summation is that there is no alternative to the ANC. ?
South Africa needs REAL jobs, not temporary work placements Helen Zille, Leader of the Democratic Alliance12 February 2014Note to Editors: This is a speech extract delivered by DA Leader Helen Zille at the DA's REAL jobs march in Johannesburg today. Today the DA has marched to Luthuli House to highlight Jacob Zuma’s failure to deliver on his jobs promise in 2009, the weak jobs promise he has made in the 2014 manifesto and our own plan for 6 million REAL jobs. We are marching in solidarity with the 7 million unemployed South Africans who feel powerless and betrayed. Today, we bring a message. From the north, in Limpopo, right across to the furthest reaches of the Northern Cape, we carry the voice of a nation crying out for leadership.

And it is not only the jobless who have been betrayed. The dreams and sacrifices of great leaders like Chief Luthuli, . ...

May 7 will see South Africa's most closely-fought election since the fall of apartheid, Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille says. More at:
Johannesburg (AFP) - South Africa's opposition Democratic Alliance (DA) on Sunday announced the collapse of a deal to have former anti-apartheid stalwart Mamphela Ramphele stand as its Presidential Candidate in upcoming elections against the ruling ANC. It would have been the first time that the DA had fielded a black Presidential Candidate in an election, providing a shield against persistent charges they are a vessel for white interests. Ramphele -- the partner of slain South African hero Steve Biko -- would have faced beleaguered incumbent President Jacob Zuma. But the deal fell apart at a meeting on Sunday aimed at finalising terms of the agreement announced last Tuesday, DA leader Helen Zille said in a statement. "Dr. Ramphele reneged on the agreement that she stand as the DA’s Presidential Candidate, and that (her party) Agang SA’s branches, members and volunteers be incorporated into the DA," she said. "This about-turn will come as a disappointment to the many South Africans who were inspired b ...

Pretoria – The late former President Nelson Mandela has been named as the National Press Club's Newsmaker of the Year for 2013. There was an unprecedented outpouring of emotion when Madiba passed away on 5 December at the age of 95. President Jacob Zuma declared 10 days of mourning. Press Club chairperson Jos Charle said on Wednesday night that both in terms of impact and media coverage, Nelson Mandela dominated the news in 2013. The Newsmaker of the Year Award is made on the grounds of impact, news value and media attention in electronic, print, online and social media. “Nelson Mandela's death riveted the attention of the world for 10 days. It consumed South Africans - and much of the world - as the country pulled out all stops to bury the father of the South African nation with military precision and ancient Xhosa customs. "The world's news media - television, radio and print media - extensively reported on Nelson Mandela's life and his role in South Africa's liberation struggle for weeks following ...
About 2014 elections and newspaper headlines: Anyone notice how subtly the sentiment against the DA, their leadership, or their administrative efforts have been changing in in the headlines of the Western Cape newspapers? Such "soft", barely-supported criticism is what some may call "white propaganda". It's intent is to sow doubt in the mind of the readers about the appropriateness of the subject, in this case the DA. Such actions also would undermine the credibility of the objectiveness of the newspaper, which I hope everyone stops reading real soon. These "reports' have been appearing in the mainstream daily newspapers, in 2 languages and are also echoed on the Internet versions. For example, the headline which claims that there would be a march upon the house of the Western Province's premier, Helen Zille should not be taken lightly at all. Such talk is war talk, similar to the president of South Africa, as an ex military general of the ANC, singing and dancing his song which calls for his machine gun ...
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.

South Africa's main opposition party has announced anti-apartheid activist Mamphela Ramphele will be its Presidential Candidate this year. Ms Ramphele, the companion of late black consciousness leader Steve Biko, only formed her Agang party last year. Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille said there was "no better person" than Ms Ramphele to lead their election bid. Analysts say the move is intended to ward off accusations that the DA is "too white" to win power. The two leaders said they were joining forces to bring unity to South Africa - the "unity Madiba [Nelson Mandela] fought for". Ms Ramphele, 66, is seen as an impressive figure with impeccable "struggle credentials" - factors which still influence the way some South Africans vote. She is also a former World Bank director and mining magnate. However, her Agang party has failed to make much of an impact since its launch last year. It is bankrupt and a month ago was unable to pay its staff. The BBC's Milton Nkosi in Johannesburg says the DA takeover ...
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?
oh god. please dont laugh to loud... latest from the president of South Africa Cape TownJacob Zuma came out strongly against opposition parties. The South African president claims that COPE, the IFP and the DA in particular are to blame for all the problems facing his ruling ANC party. “Helen Zille and her Democratic Alliance is a menace,” he said during a parliamentary session. “It’s her fault that we make mistakes.” According to Zuma, South Africa’s got problems because people know South Africa’s got problems. If nobody knows about the trouble, then the trouble won’t exist, and everything would be fine. “It’s not my fault that the country is slipping,” he cried. “If the DA stops pointing out my incompetence, South Africa won’t be presented in a bad light and the economy will strengthen.” The president rejected any claims that the stifling hold of Trade Unions, an uncertain economic plan as well as lacklustre implementation are responsible for the lethargic growth. “Th ...

Subject: FW: Helen Zille's newsletter of today. What a useless government we have Where, in any democracy in the world, can a handful of protestors close down a major urban highway, day after day, without facing arrest? Or, with impunity, blockade an airport; strew faeces in public places, and hurl toilet tanks into oncoming traffic? Where in any democracy can five “protestors” invite the media to watch them hijack a truck, and force the driver to “jack-knife” across a highway, without any consequences? The answer is the Western Cape, the only Province in South Africa where the ANC lost a free and fair election. (Watch the video link here). ANC office bearers openly and regularly announce their intention of “liberating” the province. They have an official name for this project. It is called “Operation Reclaim”. This is ironic, not only because the Western Cape Government was elected by a majority of its voters, but because, according to all official statistics, the poor get much better ser ...

"DA leader Helen Zille yesterday said her party had noted with interest AbaThembu King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo’s comments about both her party and the ruling ANC. Zille said the king’s words may well prove to be a turning point and were an important political development – “one all South Africans should note”. She was reacting to Dalindyebo’s comments that the ANC should be voted out of power due to high levels of corruption, lack of service delivery, and disregard for human rights. He added that to show his discontent with the party, he would invite both Zille and DA provincial leader Athol Trollip to his palace. Said Zille: “We would gladly accept the king’s invitation to visit him at his palace.” Dalindyebo was speaking at a prayer meeting for the ailing former president Nelson Mandela held on Saturday morning at his Bumbane Great Place. He accused President Jacob Zuma of distorting Mandela’s legacy, saying it was about time traditional chiefs stopped allowing themselves to be used t ...
Cape Town 'poo wars': Mass arrests in South Africa: At least 180 people have been arrested, some carrying bags of human waste, ahead of a planned protest over the lack of proper sanitation in the South African city of Cape Town. Despite the arrests, some bags of waste were dumped inside some Local Government offices, local media say. Last week, raw sewage was thrown at opposition leader Helen Zille as she toured poor areas of the city. She is premier of Western Cape - the only province not run by the ANC. The PIA's Mohammed Allie in Cape Town says there is no doubt that housing and sanitation are a real problem in Cape Town but many people are asking why these protests have only taken place in Cape Town, when the same issue exists elsewhere in the country. The ANC has distanced itself from the manner of these protests. At the moment, many township residents share outside toilets, where conditions are often be unhygienic and where some women have been raped at night. The protesters had reportedly travelled ...
Today I was confronted with a question: How far will I go to ensure South Africa becomes the country it deserves to be? I paused and realised... I am willing to give my life to see every South African enjoy the freedom heroes such as, Joe Slovo, Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo, Helen Suzman, Robert Sobukwe, Chris Hani and Helen Zille fought for. They have done their bit, it is now our time to step up and fight for the Freedom we can use. I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage everyone who qualifies to vote next year to Register To Vote-sa. Also, educate yourselves about the current political systems in South Africa, so that when your time comes, you do not vote based on how your parents have been voting, but based on the kind of South Africa you will enjoy living in. Voting is not only your RIGHT, VOTING IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY in ensuring the well-being of this Country. Do not vote for Black or White, Vote for a United Nation with One Future in Mind!

Zille commended local councillor Jabulani Chiya who left the African National Congress and joined her party. She said there were many people like Chiya across the country who wanted their lives to improve. "They want the best for their families and children.

South Africa: Both main party leaders, Jacob Zuma (ANC) and Helen Zille (DA), are being accused of having uncomfortably close relationships with the Gupta family, wealthy owners of the recently-launched New Age newspaper. Ms Zille has publicly accused the ANC of using public funds to help bankroll the newspaper in exchange for favourable media coverage. The ANC has also publicly accused Ms Zille of lying. They say she has in fact "inhaled Gupta money" despite strong denials on her part.

By: Carien du Plessis and Mandy Rossouw, City Press 2013-01-27 16:26 Johannesburg - Struggle heavyweight Mamphela Ramphele is preparing to enter politics and is expected to make an announcement about it soon. Ramphele went to the US earlier this month, where she told at least one audience she was raising funds for a “Political Party”. She has also been lobbying ambassadors for support. Former DA leader Tony Leon told City Press two people who attended her meetings in the US told him independently of each other about Ramphele’s expressed intentions. “One of these meetings was in Boston, where she spoke at the residence of South African-born [retired] Chief Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, Margaret Marshall. “A friend of mine from South Africa was there. She said Ramphele was starting a Political Party and she was there to raise money,” Leon said. At least two sources said they were expecting an announcement from her about this next month.

It is a date all South Africans should commemorate, in order to better understand this law’s tragic consequences, and find ways to make redress meaningful. The 1913 Land Act was apartheid’s “original sin” because it reserved 87% of South Africa’s land exclusively for white ownership, as the basis of the “Bantustan” policy. It not only dispossessed many black South Africans of the land they owned, but also sought to prohibit black people from ever acquiring land in so-called “white” South Africa. The ultimate aim of the National Party government was to strip .. ...
Nearly two decades after apartheid ended, South Africa is becoming a de facto one-party state. The liberal opposition—the Democratic Alliance (DA), led by a doughty white woman and former anti-apartheid journalist, Helen Zille—has the right ideas, calling above all for the ANC to respect the constitution. The DA has made electoral gains, climbing to 17% of the vote in the last General Election in 2009 and 24% in local elections last year. It runs Cape Town and the encompassing Western Cape province better than the ANC runs most of the rest of the country. But most blacks see the DA as too white, and still have a deep-seated loyalty to the ANC—whatever its failings—as the party of Mr Mandela and liberation. That still gives the ANC over 60% of the vote. For the foreseeable future the DA has no earthly chance of national power.

If you want to Change and Guarantees in South Africa vote DA and follow Helen Zille and Lindiwe Mazibuko.
Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Helen Zille on Saturday claimed that the African National Congress (ANC) was in the process of disintegrating and that no matter the outcome of Mangaung, the party would continue to fall apart. She also said that the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) was being dragged down with the ANC. Zille said there is a reason the DA is only growing. “The DA is the only party in South Africa that is a party of strong, functional institutions. That is the reason, the DA works.” Zille claimed the ANC's problems have also started affecting Cosatu. “In the past it meant its future in policy making was secure. "In future it means they are going to be more and more divided and more and more torn apart and affected by the disintegration of the ANC." She suggested Cosatu leave the alliance.
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.

These workers have once more bemoaned inequalities continuing to exist in a democratic South Africa. We as the Youth of the ANC we remain convinced that the demands of the workers are not impossible to achieve. We remain convinced that the General Secretary of COSATU Cde Zwelinzima Vavi is a selfless fighter of the workers and a thorn to monopoly capital. Hence the mouth piece of white monopoly capital the DA through its leader Helen Zille wants to paint him in a bad picture because he continues to challenge the status quo against white monopoly capital. Cde Vavi must continue to fight against e-tolling, for a living wage and for basic services to our workers. Cde Vavi is indeed our modern day Chris Hani ...

My mother and my dear wife Dangisani adores and love our President Jacob Zuma and they believe he is the best South Africa has ever had and I on the side Iam fully behind Helen Zille of Democratic Alliance phew! you talk about a truly divided family
This is something that has been bothering me for a while - according to the constitution, the right to strike is entrenched. No problem. Also entrenched is the freedom of movement. Sooo, now we come to strikers/rioters/protesters whatever, blocking a road (& normally destroying someone's property) - their rights seem to be protected by the authorities. Now, you try & access that road to, say get to work/hospital/home or whatever, but you are denied access. How in the blue blazes does this work? Can someone please enlighten me? Is it the old 'Animal Farm' thing again? Helen Zille (the DA dancer) wants to visit Zuma's new compound - uh uh! No can do. The ANC 'people' do not want you there! Now it appears that she should have got permission from some chief to enter 'Tribal Lands'! However, if people living in urban areas want to erect a barrier to limit access to unwanted guests (potential criminals) - sorry no can do! Freedom Charter, I believe, says something about South Africa for ALL it's people. I might ...
Zille: Battle for spoils tearing ANC apart 04 Nov 2012 13:09 - Peroshni Govender, Ed Cropley The ANC will fracture before the decade is out, pulled apart by tension between big business and labour, opposition leader Helen Zille said. Our Coverage Mthethwa to duel with Zille in court More Coverage Police stop Zille at Nkandla SACP: DA visit to Nkandla 'racist', 'right wing' and a 'publicity stunt' DA visit to Nkandla 'unnecessary and unwarranted' says ANC In an interview with Reuters, Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Zille said the unprecedented mining turmoil, including the police killing of 34 strikers at Lonmin's Marikana platinum mine in August, had exposed unsustainable contradictions in Nelson Mandela's 100-year-old ANC. She attacked the veteran liberation movement that has ruled South Africa since the end of apartheid as "essentially a patronage-driven party", with those at the centre keeping power by controlling access to lucrative government contracts. It would be impossible for the ANC to keep org ...
Helen Zille - Cape Town - "There can be no "no-go" areas in a democratic South Africa
People(members) of DA including their leaders Helen Zille,Lindiwe Mazibuko,Musi Maimane etc are realy crazy! since when DA are representing poor people? Since when Jacob Zuma and ANC became a enemies of poor people in South Africa ???
Let's be honest. The ANC openly goes all over the continent "strengthening ties with former liberation movements" and even promises to help ZANU-PF to win Zimbabwe's next elections. There's nothing wrong with that. The ANC Youth League promises to unite the opposition in Botswana and help them win Botswana's next elections. Julius Malema is expelled, Sindiso Magaxa/ca and Floyd Shivambo are suspended. The ANC openly fraternises with China, have its leadership attend training in China and South Africa is evidently being recolonised by the Chinese. There's no problem. Helen Zille goes to Britain and meets the British rulers. South Africa's intelligence community springs into action and put the DA under surveillance. There's a threat to national security, they say. Are we being consitent? Or does this give credence to Juju's assertion that we're under a dictatorship?
Charlize Theron will only live in South Africa again when she plays the lead in the screen adaptation of Helen Zille's life.
My LEADER of Democratic Alliance (DA) Premier Helen Zille is now live on SAFM (After 8 Debate) Listen to her as she articulate the proposal of (New kind of Political Party in South Africa)
Helen Zille want the new party that will challenge the ANC to adopt the National Development Plan. She reckons the next stop is to build a governing party that can make the efficient implementation of the plan a priority. Maybe Zille and all her similar thinking individuals should join the ANC and assist with the implantation of the ANC plan that everybody agrees to that it is brilliant. Dethroning the ANC is a pipe dream and is a waste of energy than to join them and assist in building a better South Africa for all as pronounced in the NDP.

An aeroplane was about to crash; there were 5 passengers on board, but only 4 parachutes. The first passenger said, "I am President Obama, the chosen one. The world needs me, I can't afford to die." So he took the first parachute and left the aircraft.. The second passenger, Julius Malema, said, "i am a great man, I was the leader of the ANC Youth League in SA and I am the smartest African in Southern Africa and probably the next President, so South African people don't want me to die." He took the second parachute and jumped out of the aircraft. The third passenger, Pieter Dirk Uys, said, "I'm Evita Bezuidenhout the mother of South Africa and the nation needs my guidance and my boyfriend would miss me." So he grabbed the parachute next to him and jumped The fourth passenger, Helen Zille, said to the fifth passenger, a 10-year-old schoolgirl, "I have lived a full life, and served my country the best I could. I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute." The little girl said, "That's okay, ...
Max Du Preez offers these "top ten" Julius Malema quotes: 1. On himself: “I’m an ordinary young person who’s grown up here in South Africa, from a township, who has no intention – none whatsoever – to scare people.” 2. On Zuma's education: “Zuma was taught by people on the ground. He is the most educated president. Economics is simple – put bread on the table.” 3. On politicians who can be replaced: “Politicians are the easiest to replace . . . we will move forward and they will carry on with the programmes which are there.” 4. On a two-thirds majority: “We are tired of a two-thirds majority. Our aim is a ‘three-thirds’ majority.” 5. On being a decoy: “I was the decoy. While Helen Zille was calling me names, Jacob Zuma was sprinting to the Union Buildings.” 6. On Nando’s: “I don’t know what’s happening with Nando’s. We are running this country and we cannot be concerned about chickens.” 7. On the ANCYL: “We are in a political laboratory; never blame us if we ...

According to a journalist at the scene, officers had first used water cannons, tear gas and stun grenades in an attempt to disperse the crowd. The President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, has said the was 'shocked and dismayed at this senseless violence'.

At least 23 people, including seven children, have been killed in the past five months in gang violence in coloured and black working class neighborhoods in in South Africa's Western Cape province. Anywhere else that would be a political crisis. But not in the Western Cape. The Western Cape is governed by the Democratic Alliance, whose leader Helen Zille styles herself as some kind reincarnation of Margaret Thatcher. It's not happening in central CapeTown and the city's overwhelmingly white middle class southern suburbs where the DA gets votes. The DA's also good at deflecting and pandering. The DA's been going on about how Cape Town is "well governed." Any visit, outside the boundaries of central Cape Town (really a dead city) and the mostly white southern suburbs, will easily figured out this is *** As for the gang violence, Zille's been going on about sending in the national army to deal with gang violence. The province's Police Commissioner thinks it is a bad idea. And as The Economist reports, ...
For your urgent attention. SOUTH AFRICA (Country risk rating: High); 7 August; ANC Youth League threatens mass protests in Cape Town The Western Cape branch of South Africa's African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) has threatened to block sections of Cape Town's N1 and N2 highways, halting transportation in these areas, should the provincial government, led by the Democratic Alliance (DA), fail to adequately address its grievances. The ANCYL has given Western Cape and DA party leader, Helen Zille, a 7 August deadline to respond to its demands which centre on public service delivery in the city's informal settlements. The Western Cape, where Cape Town is located, is the only administrative province in South Africa governed by an opposition party. However, the ANC continues to garner significant support from residents living in the city's sprawling informal settlements. In Cape Town, much of the ANC's support emanates from the townships of Gugulethu, Khayelitsha, Langa and Macassar, all located near ...
Moving speech by Helen Zille at Freedom Park, Pretoria. This is justice being implemented and broadcast in full audio visual fashion. Mmusi Maimane is MC of the event. South Africa needs the implementation of a Youth Wage Subsidy now!
Zuma's giant leap to nowhere - Helen Zille Helen Zille 01 July 2012 DA leader says the ANC has once again proven it has no solutions to SA's problems Zuma's "giant leap" - off the cliff The ANC's policy conference in Midrand this week has dispelled any lingering hope that the ANC can still rescue South Africa from the consequences of 18 years of ANC rule. If the conference resolutions (couched in tired, old Marxist jargon) are ever implemented, they will undoubtedly worsen the crisis of poverty, unemployment and inequality the ANC claims it wants to address. The ANC acknowledges in its own discussion documents, prepared for the conference, that the state is "impotent". It acknowledges that there is a "crisis of outcomes" (otherwise known as delivery failure). But its plan to fix this is - more state control! Despite the acknowledged failure of almost every state-driven intervention - from land reform to education renewal - President Zuma's opening speech blamed the familiar scapegoat: "white men" and the ...
Call Centre industry in South Africa has grown by 20% in the last year and is flourishing says Premier Helen Zille on todays news.
South Africa is in need of leaders who not lead with their heads only but lead with their hearts. Who are here to serve SA Citizens but not to be served, true leaders like Tata Rolihlahla Mandela, Patricia De Lille,Helen Zille, Dr Mamphele Ramphele,Rhoda Kadalie, Steve Biko, Helen Suzman.
INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPERS HOT SPOT: A schoolboy burns the DA flag during Youth Day celebrations in Soweto yesterday. Picture: Matthews Baloyi DA leader Helen Zille yesterday cautioned it was too easy to keep people in the past and divide them, and while it was important to honour the past, it was time to move forward to build South Africa. “On this day, filled with conflict and hatred 36 years ago, we can choose to continue (to hate) or use it to bring people together… Never again will we abuse
Helen Zille was addressing children at some primary school in Western Cape, she clapped her hands second after seconds in the children`s silence and said " Everytime I clap my hands, a child dies from Gun violence in South Africa".Nazo as a little kid at the back said " well *** stop clapping then".
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
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 ...
I'm watching Noleen on 3 and I just realised that I have a serious problem with white people. I'm not a racist bt I'd admit it I realy hate white ppl and ppl like Helen Zille make me hate them more. I blame Nelson Mandela for allowing South Africa to what it is today, now I understand what Robert Sobukwe's frastrations were about the Freedom Charter. How can we say SA belongs to everyone who lives in it when the rightful owners of the land are oppressed. Do u think a white person can say "Lets share the house" to a black person whom he found stealing in his house? How then did we allow white ppl to share with us? That is why up to this far the wealth of this country is still in the hands of white. Come July ppl are going to be praising Mandela like he's a God bt to me he's a sell out. Black South Africans are still living in informal settlements bcoz of him. I hope u are listening Robert Sobukwe, Chris Hani and Peter Mokaba. We are oppressed in our own land. Mxm
This guy, Marius Fransman, is Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation of South Africa??? The ANC must be kidding!! This retard says "Helen Zille cannot be seen to defend the hairdresser, anyone else or her own indiscresion (sic) ..and must condemn such racism such as that of the model (Jessica Leandra), hairdresser (James Brown) and student (Ken Sinclair)." The logic, according to this half-wit, is that Zille referred to those from other provinces seeking better education in the Cape as refugees, and "called those objecting to it as ‘xenophobic' causing a pseudo outrage, many people may think Zille's remark has created impunity to be racist." I don't know what a pseudo outrage is, and a minister who officially represents SA overseas should own a dictionary and check before mispelling words like indiscretion. But apart from pasting meaningless adjectives to nouns that also don't fit, you have to be seriously retarded to see a connection between Zille's comments and Sinclair's comment ...
"May Day May Day, great danger in the horizon"! This is what the Centre for Development & Enterprise's (CDE) statistics on employment are trying to reflect so as to have South Africa elude from this grim, imminent reality. The CDE's revelation that unemployment is just under two thirds of the population is contrary to SA's official unemployment statistics which indicate that unemployment is at a quarter of the population. Helen Zille mentioned in her Workers' Day event speech in Midvaal, Gauteng that in order for us to reach the global average employment rate of people between 16 and 64 years of age, we need at least 5 million more jobs. Such an indication cannot go unnoticed considering the major role played by workers in any economy. The ramifications of recognising Workers' Day as an important milestone are important and cannot be ignored as this day is observed in over 80 countries around the world. Quite quaint in all respects for SA, was the fact that "May Day" was the subject of a lot of headlines.
Imagine a South Africa where Helen Zille ran the WC, Simphiwe Dana made music, and we never had to read their RTs.
