Yebo gogo, I really like this one. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, fight fire with fire. Two can play this game and what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Something like that. OK, it's a big pose on the part of the DA youth wing, but I like the challenge to the ANC, who have proved themselves to be nothing more than bourgeois capitalists, eminently corruptible and hypocritical to the core. I wonder how "Stinkbomb" Malema will respond to this?
The Democratic Alliance's youth wing called for the nationalisation of the ANC's investment company, Chancellor House.
"Reading through the resolutions put before Cosatu's 10th national congress it becomes clear that there is an appetite for nationalisation," party MP Khume Ramulifho said.
"In the spirit of nationalisation then, the DA Youth has a proposal to make - Chancellor House, the ANC's funding front house, should be nationalised."
Ramulifho was responding to calls by the ANC Youth League and the Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) and its affiliates to nationalise mining houses, the SA Reserve Bank and Sasol, among others.
"If Tokyo Sexwale should be nationalised, why not Chancellor House," Ramulifho asked, referring to calls for Sexwale's wealth to be redistributed.
"We look forward to the staunch support of Cosatu and its affiliates, as well as the ANC Youth League, on this issue.
"We have full confidence that they understand that Chancellor House relies heavily on money taken from the public, and that, as such the public should own it."
