The EFF accuses the ruling party for being negligent and reckless, this came before the EFF Bojanala Chairperson, Thulane Makganya was escorted by heavily armed police after violent threats were made during the radio 702 debate on 29 June in the Brits Town Hall.
At 15:00 to 18:00 on 29 June, 2016, at the Brits City Hall, famed radio station 702 held a political debate with all representing political parties, including oppositions namely the Democratic Alliance (DA) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) with community members and NGOs present from the Local Municipality of Madibeng. As usual, the ANC was present in overarching numbers and tensions grew between the ruling party and the ANC. Continue reading
Madibeng municipality is struggling to operate and maintain their services infrastructure in a cost-effective and sustainable manner. The end result is predictable: rapid deterioration of assets, followed by catastrophic component failure, and regular and prolonged disruptions in service delivery.
Mayisela’s ‘Spazashop’ with rapid advancement it seems. Who is the shopkeeper because the customers are plenty? Selling pieces of non-demarcated land is illegal and so is squatting. Desperate people squatting on available piece of land is risky and does not make any sense as there will always be infrastructure problems.
The Freedom Front Plus believes that South Africa is facing an abyss. South Africans are harassed by crime, unemployment, discrimination and land expropriation. Their solution is to defeat the ANC through coalition politics in network with other opposition parties. They wish to stop policies that hamper job-creation, end discrimination, stop black economic Empowerment (BBBEE), which is racially discriminative in their constitutional view. Their ethos on employment is by merit alone. The interim to the solution is to offer employment to minorities should an appropriate candidate from the BBBEE pool not be found within 90 days of recruitment. They believe in mother-tongue education, protection of minority rights and the right to private land ownership.
Due to the fact that the mayor of Tshwane has been changed, the people of Tshwane started looting in Attridgeville in Pretoria, the other communities started to attack the foreign businesses. In Mabopane, at least two people were killed while they were busy looting.

The budget was presented on 31 May 2016, by Councillor and Honourable Jostina Mothibe at the ordinary council sitting of the Madibeng Local Municipality.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) is the ANC’s biggest threat in Madibeng. With the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) slowly solintering and ‘converting’ like-minded leftist ANC members, it means the rest is ‘up for grabs’ by the DA. The DA is doing front-line campaign work and door-to-door visits in rural townships to the extent that the majority of the membership has ‘blackened.’
The African National Congress (ANC) continues the legacy of apartheid by implementing and justifying by broad-based black economic empowermnet (BBBEE) unconstitutional practice. This policy applied on national, provincial and municipal lever is to be contested in the Constitutional Court. A black majority excluding a white minority from employment on the basis of race is racism. 20 years elapsed is more than enough to redress the injustices of the past. We face second generation of free-borns who do not understand why they should be punished or an era they did not live in.
Many of COPES policies were allegedly cannibalised by the ANC in the form of slogans, campaigns and forms of policy to action. This is a moderate centre party with very bad blood towards the ANC, yet they do not have the militant hate of the EFF.
