By A Comrade
THE ANC has always been known as a revolutionary party. One which was the blue print for most liberation movements across the African continent.
When some of us joined, we saw this movement as the only vehicle to liberate ourselves and our people from the tyranny of apartheid oppression and injustice.
For the longest while, we believed in this movement, standing in its ranks, accepting assignments, serving our detention and deployment without question, in the hope of advancing the revolution.
Along the journey we encountered developments that should have led us to question if the party still stood for the values we believed it stood for. But our loyalty would not allow us to question the sacred movement.
Some comrades through the years, warned us that from inception, the founding fathers of the party never intended to destroy the apartheid system for black emancipation. Instead they were fighting for recognition and inclusion into the system of the oppressor as caretakers of the oppressed.
They were willing to lead fellow blacks on behalf of their white masters as long as they were allowed to sit and eat with the master at his table.
This is why as a gesture of allegiance to the queen, our founding fathers offered 19 000 black soldiers to fight in the First World War as subjects of the queen.
These are warnings that many of us rejected as anti-revolutionary because they meant that those of us who had joined the party for what we thought was its revolutionary ideology, had to accept that we had wasted the greater part of our formative years on a fallacy that was never formed to liberate our people.
Our fears were allayed by tales of the Youth Congress of Mda, Mandela and Lembede who fought tirelessly against this “inclusion” culture of the founders.
Only for the same progressive young comrades in their later years to compromise African emancipation through the drafting of the Freedom Charter, reaffirming a return to the inclusion position. Something we should have picked up again when Mandela began to negotiate alone with the boers without the collective.
Nevertheless, due to the euphoria of Mandela’s release, the illusion of leadership that whites built behind him during the period of negotiations, the pending independence and the prospect of gaining lucrative positions in government, ensured that most of us didn’t see or at least we didn’t want to see the red flags.
Instead we used the death of Chris Hani to galvanize us behind Mandela Magic after two white right wingers were arrested for what was sold as an attempt to sabotage the new South Africa.
Intent on making the new South Africa work, we ignored the fact that Hani was sacrificed by the same comrades who wanted nothing more than inclusion in the system.
Hani’s sin was seeking to hold the collective true to the promise of a majority rule that would deliver equality, redistribution, restitution and a rejection of elitist endeavors of self enrichment like the arms deal.
Today, the cancer established by our founding fathers, reinforced by those who negotiated our freedom, has festered into a culture that is now eroding the revolutionary mask that the ANC has worn for a century to win black voters.
Its leaders no longer bother to hide their complicity with the system we fought against, as they focus unashamedly on inclusion and individual gain with no regard for the masses they purport to have liberated.
As the fight for South African resources continues in earnest. Politicians are being seduced to disregard party policy and ideology to advance personal interest in fulfillment of their desires, while building white wealth at the exclusion of blacks.
Daily they are persuaded to ditch radical economic transformation, Land Reform; approving tenders, mining concessions and the sale of sovereign assets of state owned enterprises to foreign global companies.
Those who don’t toe the line have become the new age Hanis and Lemumbas, assassinated in the court of public opinion by their own comrades on the instruction of the capitalists.
Even upright comrades are now openly conceding to the pressure of these foreign interests to avoid ending up as martyrs.
Members in our branches complain that fair skinned men in dark suits (reminiscent of the old BOSS agents) are paying branch leaders visits in their homes at the dead of night.
Giving them policy lines to follow, while instructing them to call for the review of election lists, the purge of those driving radical economic transformation, land reform and Nasrac resolutions.
We are also informed that Johann Rupert and his principals are concerned about the number of hardline supporters of RET (radical economic transformation) and land reform, featuring prominently on ANC lists.
Top on the list of hardliners who need to be eliminated is comrade Ace who is seen as a loose canon and threat to their endeavors so they want him gone as soon as possible.
This is why they have decided to use their media to discredit him and push the ANC to drop him by June, all to stop him disrupting the mandate they have given the new President.
Information out of media houses is that their assets will be deployed to systematically release a series of explosive articles on comrade Ace in an aggressive print, electronic and social media smear campaign to tarnish his public image in a way that will force the ANC to distance themselves from him.
Yesterday morning saw the first installment of the “Ace Must Fall By June” campaign, kicked off by the media launch of Pieter Myburgh’s book that was accompanied by exposés in the City Press, Sunday Times and a publicity feature for the book on eNCA.
We are led to believe that news and print rooms across the country were locked in emergency meetings on Thursday 28th of March 2019. Leading to the dropping of the scheduled Sunday paper headline story of the R12mil paid to the ANC top six by Bosasa.
The replacement was an exposé on Ace as the kingpin of state capture that was driven by notes compiled by Pieter Myburgh himself and passed on to all media houses.
Very convenient timing considering that today (Monday the 1st of April 2019) there will be an emergency NEC meeting to discuss whether people with allegations of corruption should be allowed on the list.
Something that has us as comrades wondering why the ANC has suddenly moved from the policy of allowing those free of serious criminal convictions to be on the list.
Who is running the ANC, Luthuli House or a white shadow government?
Some well placed sources have hinted that even though some Ramaphosa aligned cadres also have allegations of corruption hanging over their heads. The decision is that they will be sacrificed to ensure that Ace and other hardliners are removed.
If the NEC does not remove Ace now, some feel that the NEC will still be used to remove him for insisting on going to the State of Capture Commission to clear his name after the ANC top six instructed him not to.
Those close to comrade Ace say that he wants to go to the commission because he feels hard done by the claims that he led state capture by bringing the Guptas into the ANC.
Something seen as propaganda because it’s believed that he only met the Guptas for the first time at a meeting convened by the ANC leadership at the Sheraton in Pretoria, where ANC premiers were introduced to the Guptas and instructed to work with them.
It’s an open secret in party circles that present at that meeting were the top six of the time that included Cyril Ramaphosa. It was that leadership that issued the instruction that ANC position holders work with the Guptas to transform the SA economy.
This militant character of Ace standing up for his convictions and challenging the culture of inclusion, is what sees him being targeted by the Thuma Mina brigade.
His departure is critical for them because if they fail to remove him and other undesirables from the list. Big business has vowed to starve the ANC, government and SOEs of funding to levels worse than those exerted on the Zuma government.
The intention being to worsen the electricity crisis, make SOEs and the business sector dysfunctional, causing mass unemployment, lowering tax collection, forcing potential debt defaults and an inevitable ratings downgrade that will cause chaos for the ANC to give capital greater leverage.
All in the while they will bump up support for the DA and it’s black masks, encouraging defections from the ANC and pushing for the formation of coalitions against the party.
A strategy that will strengthen coalitions as a means to neutralize an ANC majority, transferring political power back to the Broederbond and their capital masters, while creating a perfect Hegelian Dialectic for capital to buy-up broke SEOs for a song.
To avoid this outcome, Thuma Mina and they hope, opposing elements within the party, will be pushed to exert their influence on the NEC, to drop candidates with allegations of corruption from the list, to save the party.
This requires the raising of negative sentiment and allegations of corruption around the SG so that they can push him out. An outcome that must be achieved by June.
The challenge that boThuma Mina face is if they don’t remove their nemesis, is it will not only cause a loss in financial support for the party and Ramaphosa government, but more critically, it poses a real functional challenge for Ramaphosa to work under a Secretary General who is committed to upholding the resolutions set at Nasrac.
This would hinder Ramaphosa’s ability to push through Rupert’s wish list without facing resistance in the party.
A wish list that prescribes that once the ANC wins the next elections, Ramaphoza needs to immediately proceed to fast track three major projects:
• The privatization of SOEs which currently is not ANC policy.
• Reviving and funding the nuclear build program,
• Which must begin with the removal of Russian companies and replacing them with American and French partners aligned to Rothschilds interests.
To achieve this, key strategic positions in government and select SEOs are said to have been earmarked for specific senior white captains of industry or deployees of capital, tasked with steering the country on a Washington Consensus, neo-liberal path which black people are not trusted to fulfill.
The rumor mill is also speculating that Steven Kosef, Maria Ramos and Martin Kingston have already resigned from their high profile jobs in preparation for deployment into a Ramaphosa government.
Martin Kingston the ex-CEO of Rothschild South Africa is on record saying that he is ready to step in to help restructuring Eskom and silencing voices that are delaying the privatization of Eskom.
A clear indication that ANC collective decision making will take a back seat under the new Thuma Mina dispensation, hence the need to remove any strong revolutionaries who are likely to challenge Ramaphosa’s carte blanche.
Just like many votes were bought at Nasrac, we are told that great strides are being taken to convert key party loyalists to align with the Thuma Mina program of capture.
Such strides include blackmail and lubrication of the party, coupled by generous incentives for cadres courtesy of the largess of Rupert and Bidvest etal.
Meanwhile, law enforcement arms are being geared to focus investigations on eliminating individuals who are opposed to the interests of the new order.
All in the while, at the high table, the black Rothschilds: Patrice, Jeff and Cyril the hand picked proxies of white capital, continue to sharpen their knives on deals in energy in preparation for the privatization of Eskom and the pending nuclear program.
The grapevine has it that Cyril has interests in Cahorra Bassa, which indirectly sets him as a crucial independent energy provider to Eskom through his energy company.
Businessmen brought into the political fold need not corrupt politicians to access resources as they can now simply use their political office to appropriate resources at will for the benefit of their principals and families.
Never has accumulating wealth been so easy as now when capital has a revolving door with government, regulatory bodies and the ruling party.
Soon we will see the return of Jewish and Broederbond elites in government and SOEs to complete the structure of inclusion.
With all these revelations land expropriation without compensation is beginning to look highly unlikely under Cyril and his handlers. And if it’s still on the cards, one thing is for sure, it will happen on their terms, hence, Patrice is sitting with the emergency land reform fund given by Soros.
This is why they must eliminate anyone who might stand in their way.
Although comrade Ace has his own skeletons. Those of us who know him understand his passion for black empowerment, transformation, land reform and creating an equal society for all.
So if we lose him, we will be hard pressed to find another person who has not sold out for inclusion to run with the mandate of our electorate like the current SG.
It’s with this that I appeal to those comrades who still believe in the principles and ideals that brought us into the revolutionary idea called ANC. To rally behind comrade Ace and to stand up against the same foreign interests that supported apartheid, created the Freedom Charter and saw our comrade Sobukwe leaving the ANC.
