“Political” Cuban engineers communist imperialism – CDP

“Minister Nomvula Mokomyane’s statement that 34 Cuban engineers have been brought into the country to try and salvage our failing water reticulation systems and that they were chosen because of their political awareness, shows that the ANC is still firmly caught in the trap of a failed Communist ideology,” says Christian Democratic Party (CDP) leader, Rev. Theunis Botha.

“The fact that she urged the engineers to involve themselves in South African politics smacks of pure communist imperialism.

“There are many qualified South African citizens who are able to do the same work, but who are being overlooked. Why, because of the colour of their skin? This is nothing but a continuation of the racism that they repeatedly condemn.

“One has become used to the blatant racism practiced by the ANCGovernment but a move such as this again serves to emphasise the fact that they are not working towards national reconciliation but are rather fermenting polarization between the different cultures in the country.”

“Politieke” Kubaanse ingenieurs is kommunistiese imperialisme – CDP

Minister Nomvula Mokomyane se uitlatings dat die 34 Kubaanse ingenieurs wat na Suid-Afrika gebring is om die land se waternetwerk wat besig is om duie te stort, reg te ruk, gekies is weens hul politieke bewussyn, toon dat die ANC steeds in die slagyster van die mislukte kommunistiese ideologie vasgevang is,” sê ds. Theunis Botha, leier van die Christen-Demokratiese Party (CDP).

“Die feit dat sy hulle aangeraai het om by plaaslike politiek betrokke te raak, klink na suiwer kommunistiese imperialisme.

“Daar is baie gekwalifiseerde Suid-Afrikaanse burgers wat in staat is om dieselfde werk te doen, maar wat oor die hoof gesien word. Hoekom? Oor hul velkleur? Dit is niks anders as ‘n voortsetting van die rassisme wat hulle so knaend veroordeel nie.

“Ons is al gewoond aan die blatante rassisme van die ANC-regering, maar ‘n stap soos hierdie toon opnuut dat die regering nie nasionale versoening in die oog het nie, maar werk maak daarvan om die verskillende kultuurgemeenskappe van mekaar polariseer.”
