VOTE OUT ANC, VOTE OUT CORRUPTION -NFP
The government has reneged on its promises and has failed its citizens not withstanding some of its achievements, National Freedom Party leader, Zanele KaMagwaza-Msibi said on Sunday.
Speaking at the party manifesto launch at Curries Fountain in Durban, KaMagwaza Msibi told about 30 thousand supporters who braved scorching sun that her party is the only hope.
“People all over the country have demonstrated confidence in the NFP as the party of their choice,” Msibi said.
“Vote out ANC, vote out corruption. Corruption has reneged our country like a cancer. Your vote is a powerful instrument.
“One we are voted into power, corrupted officials won’t be tolerated. We will fire them. NFP is the only hope.”
The NFP will be put to test at the national election polls as the party will be contesting for the first time. Msibi says she has suspended all her personal activities to woo and win the hearts and minds of voters.
“The die is cast. It is a do or die situation. We need to take off our gloves and fight ruthlessly for the success of the NFP,” she said.
“I have personally suspended all my private activities and I have become a foot-soldier and a Chief Volunteer of our party. The future is bright for us and tomorrow is certain.”
In celebration of her party’s 3rd anniversary, Msibi said that her party is consistent in its objectives and has not wavered even in difficult circumstances.
“We promote, secure and motivate a society that has not only politically emancipated, but also to ensure that through empowerment and meaningful service delivery, substantive economic emancipation is achieved.
“We embrace and defend the co-values of integrity, respect, justice, solidarity and self-discipline within the party.”
Msibi then took a swipe and blasted President Jacob Zuma’s Nkandla home. “The President used more than R250 millions of taxpayers’ money to build his own home at Nkandla. I would have used that money to build more than 15 000 houses.”
Patricia Mkhize shared the same sentiment with Msibi, saying people have seen NFP as their hope to better their lives.
“The NFP has proved itself especially in Zululand. The attendance at the launch of our manifesto makes it clear that people believe in the party. The party is working tirelessly to ensure that it wins hearts of voters on May 7,” said Mkhize.
Sifiso Msimango, an NFP supporter from Richards Bay, said he believes that his party can tackle down issues such as corruption and youth unemployment.
“I have been unemployed for a long. Government is not creating permanent and decent jobs, but part time jobs. Government must come with projects that support youth and fund small businesses to ensure job creation,” said Msimango.
Msibi also condemned the widespread of service delivery protests, saying protesters must exercise their rights peacefully.
In the local elections, the NFP garnered 1.2 votes and last year Msibi said her party is gunning for 1.8 votes and become at least an official party in KwaZulu-Natal.
