ANC senior execs can say what they want but the fact that the lekgotla voted for money printing are actions which speak louder than any words.

Painful to see these jokers kick the country around like some worthless ragdoll. It is way beyond my comprehension that something so pathetic can get 57% of the vote. It just cannot be.

Sure, we believe you. The ANC mostly lies but now we are to believe it? Not.

Truth is it hasn’t changed; problem is no one in the ANC “leadership” understands it or is even interested in understanding it. They have two goals. One; do anything, promise anything, to stay in power. Two, once in, loot, steal and thieve because you know nothing else. Repeat until coffers empty or you are about to get caught. Then resign on a fantastic pension. Thank you Mr Taxpayer; not likely.
