Quotes

"Our people must not vote for the opportunistic political parties who want to use their votes to get parliamentary position and then forget about the promises they made" Mr Zuma said
...Participating in a pre-election political debate last week, he was critical of union leaders who allowed themselves to be "caught in the trap of allowing personal friendships and family relationships to stand in the way of taking up principled battles against corruption and patronage" , and lamented the ANC’s failure to achieve "hardcore economic transformation"...
He adds, "[The sms text also says] that people must come in numbers and defend Sadtu. What is to be defended? Why do you abuse our funds, transport people and accommodate them?"
"If they really wanted to do something good, they would do human rights work, not something like this. There are so many real victims out there who never see justice; why are they not rather helping them?"
