League says yellow opportunists masquerading as communists want to
capture the ANC
The ANCWL in Limpopo notes with disgust the opportunistic statement
by the dubiously appointed Interim Leadership of the South African
Communist Party (SACP) calling for the resignation of our ANC
provincial government leadership. As the ANCWL, we are not surprised
at the unelected Limpopo SACP's leadership recent opportunistic
stunts and attempts to cast aspersion on the ability of the African
National Congress'continued successful leadership of our provincial
The ANC Limpopo government is one of the best performing provincial
governments in the country, to mention just a few achievements.
Limpopo is the best in housing service delivery, and Lebowakgomo
hospital is still the best public health-care facility in the
country. Many of our rural communities have tarred roads and
electricity. Moreover, numerous provincial government departments
have attained clean audits.
These opportunists ignore these facts because they have a dubious
political agenda informed by their own business interests. Many of
them are businessmen and women by-night, and communists by day. They
count profits and dividends at night, and fool the poor during the
day in the name of communism and fighting corruption.
Their dissatisfaction does not lie in the fact that they are fighting
corruption; some of them own expensive private schools, yet they
claim to be against privatisation. These schools are not only
inaccessible, but they also reproduce class inequalities, yet these
opportunists called themselves champions of the poor. Some of them
are not happy because our government has terminated and blacklisted
their companies for poor performance. They are not happy because our
provincial government has reduced subsidies for their private
These renewed attacks on the ANC leadership in government are
informed by the fact there is an ANC provincial congress in December
2011. They know very well that they do not enjoy popular support
amongst the ranks and file of the poor in society and within the ANC,
they are now embarking on desperate attempts to divert the ANC from
focusing on building strong branches and politically conscious
members who can see through their opportunism.
These yellow opportunists masquerading as communists just want to
capture the ANC in order to get access to the state for their own
narrow economic interests.
They shall NOT succeed. The ANC is not up for hi-jack by
opportunists. Instead of calling for the ANC provincial government
leadership to step-down, they must first resign their positions as
company directors and owners of private schools milking the poor in
the countryside. As the ANCWL we will defend the ANC against all
forms of opportunism. Chris Hani and many other real communists must
be turning in their graves given the level of hypocrisy and
opportunism displayed by the unelected Interim Provincial SACP
leadership in Limpopo. Shame on you!
