CAPE TOWN- Opposition party in the Western Cape the ANC criticised Western Cape premier Helen Zille State of the Province Address, saying that it missed the mark on important issues facing the province.
Khaya Magaxa, ANC’s acting provincial chairperson said he actually had no expectation for the speech but was surprised at the number of issues he perceived the premier omitted from her speech, he said,
“All that we have experienced is a very long speech of two hours with a lot of content but missing important issues.
“As we speak now in the great Phillipi there’s violence that is taking place, it started a week ago. People are grabbing land, and frustrated by non-progress in relation to housing and non-availability of land. This frustration has been ignored by this province,”
The ANC also wanted Zille to address the corruption allegations against Patricia de Lille and the suspension of Cape Town’s transport boss Melissa Whitehead,
“The ANC at the national level has acknowledged the issue of corruption, it also acknowledged that some of us within the ANC are implicated in ANC. The DA is quiet, they have said nothing about corruption that herself is also implicated in. She said nothing about DA leader Madikizela who is also involved in corruption,” he said.
Magaxa accused the DA of no accountability, “Helen Zille’s behaviour remains the same, the behaviour of blaming the ANC at the national level and to take credit for the same ANC’s performance at a national level. Instead of taking responsibility for her own failure, especially around management of water she is blaming the ANC.”
