When Will the ANC Stop Blaming Apartheid for their Incompetence?

12 April 2013       

After 20 years in power, the ANC continues to blame apartheid for everything but the weather instead of taking responsibility for their failure as a government.

"The Ruling party has run out of excuses to the citizen for its ineptitude, incompetence and corrupt management of State. When confronted they always fall back on the old excuse of blaming apartheid. This is clearly frustrating their own members as was seen in the recent exasperated cry by Minister Manuel when he said, "We cannot continue to blame apartheid for our failings as a state. We cannot plead ignorance or inexperience." They are coming apart at the seams!" said IFP spokesperson on Police and Correctional services, Mr Velaphi Ndlovu MP. 

"It is high time that the ANC accept their many failures, assume responsibility for them and begin acting like a responsible government. The people of this country deserve nothing less," concluded Ndlovu. 

The IFP calls upon the people of South Africa to make their voices heard when they go to the polls next year and vote for good governance rather than for old struggle credentials and favouritism.
