The ANC elective conference will do nothing for South Africans

South Africa’s President, Cyril Ramaphosa, is currently going through a storm. The storm comes at a critical time for him and his party the African National Congress (ANC). The ANC holds its 55th national elective conference in Johannesburg this weekend, where it will elect its new leadership.

This year was a rough one for South Africans, with the inflation that continued to get out of control, the floods that left hundreds dead in my home province KwaZulu-Natal, the labour strikes that worsened Eskom’s blackouts, skyrocketing murder rates, and the worst power blackouts since loadshedding  began 15 years ago.

Through these challenges, we were informed by Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) that South Africa’s economic output is back to its pre-COVID pandemic levels. 

What is vital to remind people about Stats SA’s data, is that South Africa’s economy before COVID was in bad shape, with numerous GDP (gross domestic products) contractions under Cyril Ramaphosa as President. So, still, nothing changes for the better for South Africans.

All these structural socio economic problems I have mentioned will not disappear under the new leadership of the ANC to be elected this weekend. The problems developed and deteriorated under ANC’s governance. That is a fact that no rational person should deny.
