Anton Alberts, the FF Plus’ parliamentary spokesperson on finance, says.
Adv. Alberts said during today’s medium term budget debate that a year ago he had compared South Africa to a ship damaged on the rocks of corruption, maladministration, policy uncertainty, communist laws and more racially based legislation than under apartheid rule.
He said that ship is now fast taking in water and it is undeniable that the most developed country in Africa had within two decades decayed to such an extent that the country is experiencing a lot of ‘firsts’ in its history. Some of these critical ‘achievements’ include;
Adv. Alberts says many of the ANC’s good stories can be added to this list, but it suffices to say that we are now reaping what was sowed.
