Should the SACP go it alone?

Morwa Dinoganoga Lim­popo If the SA Com­mu­nist Party (SACP) wants to be taken more se­ri­ously, it should stop be­ing a nanny to the ANC. The gov­ern­ing party is not for the poor; it is for in­di­vid­u­als who di­vide and rule. Par­lia­ment is not rep­re­sen­ta­tive of all racial groups, so Eco­nomic Free­dom Fighters leader Julius Malema has made waves. Ma­hatma Gandhi said: “Fear­less­ness is the first req­ui­site of spir­i­tu­al­ity. Cow­ards can never be moral.” The SACP has to be in­de­pen­dent and make its own de­ci­sions to take South Africa for­ward. The time is ripe for the party to take over the reins. De­beila Maser­is­hane Gaut­eng The SACP can’t go it alone be­cause it is not sure who its mem­bers are. At least 80% carry dual mem­ber­ship. The party should have bro­ken its al­liance a long time ago. Sorry, but the SACP does not ex­ist. Ge­orge Mpumalanga The SACP should wake up and smell the cof­fee, and con­test the elec­tions. The ANC has be­come an op­pres­sor. It will end up like the Na­tional Party. Time is run­ning out for the SACP.
