Aza­ni­ans seek an apol­ogy, re­form

The Star Early Edition - - LETTERS -

AL­LOW me to start by say­ing (Pi­eter) Groe­newald “is mal” (crazy). How can he threaten the no­ble strug­gle of land with civil war in this emo­tion­ally-charged Aza­nia?

We the Aza­ni­ans are fight­ing for what is right­fully ours and he has the guts to tell us that land re­dis­tri­bu­tion with­out com­pen­sa­tion will ig­nite a civil war?

Clearly he un­der­mines the core strug­gle of the Aza­nian peo­ple and he must be dealt with, either way.

We, in the PAC of Aza­nia, have been telling those who care to lis­ten that Aza­nia is an oc­cu­pied state and a dras­tic and rad­i­cal land re­form pro­gram must be de­signed and im­ple­mented.

If po­lit­i­cally bank­rupt apartheid bene­fac­tors like Groe­newald are gonna have guts to stand on a par­lia­ment podium and tell Aza­ni­ans that we, the land­less, must pay for what was stolen from us then this is not a democ­racy for Aza­ni­ans. Groe­newald must be taught a lan­guage that him and his ilk won’t for­get.

Some­how I can’t blame him be­cause the gov­ern­ment of the day pro­cessed the whole sit­u­a­tion with its will­ing-buyer-will­ing seller non­sense of a pol­icy. Now these old Afrikanse­weer­stand Be­weg­ing (AWB) rem­nants think they have con­trol on the land re­dis­tri­bu­tion.

One way or the other Groe­newald must apol­o­gise and re­tract his state­ment and I ex­pect my pres­i­dent (PAC leader Luthando) Mbinda to lead in that.

It is high time that PAC of Aza­nia takes its po­si­tion and lead the strug­gle like we did in the 60s (pass law re­sis­tance and armed strug­gle) and 70s. Land has been and will re­main the core strug­gle of us the Aza­ni­ans even though we have pop­ulists who hi­jacked our plane.

Clearly he un­der­mines the core strug­gle
