Prince Mashele: “Since 1994, the ANC has Added Nothing to the South African Economy”

The Fall of the ANCPrince Mashele, executive director of the Centre for Politics and Research and co-author of The Fall of the ANC: What Next?, recently wrote an article for the Rand Daily Mail about the sterile documents that fail to produce jobs and economic growth for the country.

The bluster of economists and policy-makers, Mashele writes, serve to cover up a fundamental truth that “since 1994, the ANC has added nothing to the South African economy”.

Read the article:

It is a bane of the mind to witness the fate of Africans trapped in the hands of leaders who don’t know what to do.

Truth must never be suppressed simply because those who occupy positions of power are black, or because those who howl at us happen to share our skin colour.

When we watch television or read newspapers, we hear of looming mass retrenchments in the mining and steel industry.

In the face of such haunting prospects, all Jacob Zuma can say is “the economy is sick”.
