Ebrahim Harvey | Ramaphosa delivers same old lies at ANC policy conference on moribund NDR

President Cyril Ramaphosa

For Cyril Ramaphosa, repeatedly invoking the National Democratic Revolution (NDR), during a speech at the ANC political conference, in relation to economic, social and public policies, is to reflect ignorance and confusion immense and pitiful, written Ebrahim Harvey.

I watched President Cyril Ramaphosa address the crisis-ridden African National Congress policy conference on television in disbelief. How much longer the ANC will deceive its own members, supporters and citizens of South Africa, including the media, was the first thing that crossed my mind while listening to his speech.

Except for the mention of the possibility of the introduction of a Basic Income Grant (BIG), Ramaphosa’s speech was a litany of rhetoric, confusion, mediocrity, evasion and yet another occasion. lost on the misguided and inappropriate policies that the ANC government has pursued since the beginning of its rule in 1994. Its economic and social-public policies have, in fact, served to aggravate black poverty, unemployment and social miseries which are related to it.
