ANC back on message
Old habits die hard, and none more so than the knee-jerk "racist" reaction used by the ANC when their backs are against a wall. The latest being labelling Helen Zille as being "racist" for wanting to get rid of the incompetent Cape Town city manager Wallace Mgoqi.

An ANC statement said that the attempt by the DA to fire Mgoqi, “a respected jurist, former chairman of Old Mutual and a land claims commissioner, exposes the DA-Zille administration as determined to purge Cape Town of its black management, regardless of the racial consequences for the city”.

Can't we all just get along?
