Enough rhetoric


NOT so long ago Cosatu called for the food sector to be nationalis­ed.

Cosatu’s general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi has now called for the nationalis­ation of the South African Reserve Bank.

The SACP secretaryg­eneral has also made its voice heard and called for the nationalis­ation of commercial banks.

And ANC Youth League president Julius Malema called for nationalis­ation of the mining sector.

What are the SACP, Cosatu and ANCYL going to think of next? Will they threaten to nationalis­e the retail industry, road transport and national supermarke­ts?

Haven’t we had enough rhetoric?

I can’t help shouting: “Long live capitalism, down with nationalis­ation.”
