SA IS UNDER THE COLONIAL ADMINISTRATION OF THE GUPTAS: THAT IS WHY NHLAHLA NENE WAS FIRED!!!

SA IS UNDER THE MANAGEMENT OF A GUPTA CRIMINAL SYNDICATE: 

Floyd Shivambu 

Many people in South Africa, including the country's Senior leaders in the ruling party, in government and private sector are still wondering as to why Nhlahla Nene was abruptly removed as Minister of Finance without any sound explanation by Mr. Jacob Zuma, who has foregone the right to be called President.

On Blade Nzimande and the crisis of Higher Education in South Africa! #ListenToTheKids

On Blade Nzimande and the crisis of Higher Education in South Africa! #FeesMustFall! #BladeMustGo and #ANCMustFall

Floyd Shivambu

With no intention to polarise the otherwise gallant struggles of all students mobilised under the #FeesMustFall movement, we should perhaps take a pause to reflect on the real objective and subjective politics behind the higher education funding crisis in South Africa. Those at the forefront of the students’ protests correctly proclaim that the #FeesMustFall movement is not a party political programme, but consolidated students’ action cutting across racial, political and class lines.

We Are Not Sorry for Economic Freedom: #WeAreNotSorry

We are not sorry for the struggle for economic freedom:

Floyd Shivambu

The recent past Congress of the former ANC Youth League, which is now effectively the ANC Youth Desk confirmed the observations we made when we made the clarion call to Economic Freedom Fighters in June 2013. During that period, we made a correct observation that the expulsion, suspensions and what would later became dissolution of the ANC YL 24thNational Executive Committee was a right wing effort to illegally abort the struggle for economic freedom, which had been conceptualised by, canvassed for and gained solid ground in the former liberation movement by and due to the current leadership core of the Economic Freedom Fighters, notably its President and Deputy President.

Hashtag: #WhereWasNzimande?

WHERE WAS BLADE NZIMANDE DURING THE STRUGGLE AGAINST APARTHEID?

FLOYD SHIVAMBU

When Blade Nzimande was reported to have said that the Economic Freedom Fighters should be killed, we promptly and correctly dismissed him as an opportunist intellectual dwarf who do not have any sensible ideological and political programme to confront the EFF. What we did not do was to politically expose the nature, character and content of Blade Nzimande, reveal who he truly is.

Zuma's incomplete history lesson:

Zuma’s incomplete history lesson:

Floyd Shivambu

While responding to the debates of the 2015 State of the Nation Address, President Jacob Zuma went off script and gave a brief history lesson on the origins of the political territory known as South Africa today. In the history lesson, he correctly highlighted the key events and developments, including the many wars of resistance. He also illustrated the fact that the battle of Isandlwana was the most prominent of these wars, and acknowledged that in all the wars, the African majority were conquered.

The case for Malamulele Municipality.

A COGENT CASE FOR MALAMULELE MUNICIPALITY: IT IS NOT TRIBALISM, IT IS SERVICE DELIVERY.

Floyd Shivambu

The violent protests that have defined Malamulele to demand a Municipality independent of the Thulamela Local Municipality have largely been defined and characterised in media circles as tribal cries for a tribal authority. While the consciousness of ordinary people in Malamulele might have tribal undertones, it is entirely incorrect that a demand for a municipality is solely on the basis of tribal dynamics, wherein Xitsonga speaking citizens do not want to be under a Municipality that is predominated by Tshivenda speaking citizens.

EFF 1st NPA IS A GREAT INSPIRATION:

The EFF National People’s Assembly an inspiration of hope: Siyaqhuba!

Floyd Shivambu

The Economic Freedom Fighters held its 1st National People’s Assembly between the 13th and 16th of December 2014 in Bloemfontein, Free State Province. Despite what doomsayers predicted and wished for, the 1st NPA of the EFF was a tremendous success, and everything that happened in as part of the official programme was qualitatively superior. Elected delegates from ward based branches, leaders of regions and provinces of the EFF converged in what became the most successful socialist gathering in the Southern hemisphere to discuss and adopt a programme of action towards economic emancipation in South Africa and the African continent.
