SACP threatens to dump ANC if land is not nationalised

SACP threatens to dump ANC if land is not nationalised

The South African Communist Party is threatening to withdraw from the Tripartite Alliance if the African National Congress refuses to take Economic Freedom Fighters' offer of 6% to amend section 25 of the Constitution.

A CEC member who spoke on condition of anonymity says the ANC scored an own goal when they refused Julius Malema’s offer in order to nationalise land without compensation.

"We are very sad the ANC refused the offer. They continue to show us they are the protectors of white monopoly capital. Why would they refuse to amend land when it's what we have been fighting for for decades? It shows they have abandoned the struggle to liberate the black masses," he said.

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema led a debate in Parliament on Tuesday on amending Section 25 of the Constitution, calling for land expropriation without compensation.

Malema told the House that the EFF would add its 6 percent to the ANC's 62 percent to get the two-thirds required to amend the Constitution, and called on the ruling party to support the motion to set up an ad hoc committee on the issue.

"If you vote against this, it's a waste of time. We are already giving our people the land and we are not ashamed," he said in the National Assembly.

According to the SACP leader, ANC does not want to nationalise land because they are in bed with white capitalists. "We know most of them get money from these white capitalists. They are protecting their masters," he sad.
