The blunt refutal of the very existence of ‘White Monopoly Capital’ by the Gauteng ANC Chairperson ‘Paul Mashatile’, a hardcore #WMC devotee, sounds so unobvious of him. Recently, there have been many such cases where some of the high profile #WMC supporters have bluntly spoken up regarding the non-existence of white monopoly capital. So, ironic of them. For instance, a few days back, another #WMC’s golden goose Trevor Manuel gave the same statement, thus raising many eyebrows. Well, we think, this is one of those psychological fake propagandas which #WMC and its puppet #WMCPaidMedia might be trying to execute.
It seems that ‘Paul Mashatile’ might be intoxicated or might be having amnesia at the time of his speech at the Gauteng Provincial Policy Conference over the weekend, because no person in his/her sane mind can forget or deny about #WMC, an incest which has been eating up SA since decades. He had quoted:
“Monopoly capital remains the enemy of the national democratic revolution. In this regard the conference has made it clear that there is no such thing as white monopoly capital in our vocabulary.”
What about those days when Mashatile used to be the Gauteng Economic Development Minister, and what about the signature he had attested regarding the high drama deal of R50 million with the American news channel Consumer News and Business Channel Africa (CNBC). It seems that this high profile scandal executed by him has simply evaporated from his mindspace.
Don’t worry, Mr Mashatile!!!
‘Let us wake you through the memory lane. In the year 2007, Gauteng Film Commission under your expert supervision had paid the American news network CNBC a hefty price of R50 million, in equal amounts of $3-million (R25-million) over the next two years. The deal was made to promote the province’s movie and TV industries.’ R50 MILLION. Seriously!!!
Essop Pahad, the then Minister of the Presidency, being the close ally of both Mashatile and the CNBC Africa co-founder Rakesh Wahi, had brokered this deal.
Millions of Rands evaporated just like that. If we sit and analyze the situation, only one output can be inferred. The influence of #WMC to the very core of the South African system. So much money smoothly and legitimately transferred, that too no one raising any decisive question on it and no one to answer it.
We have been turning deaf ears to such questions for so long. But not anymore.
So, it’s high time for us, the South African people, to get involved into such Q&As, and take up the matters to the right authorities.
#WMC must go down and along with its stooges like Paul Mashatile. Hail South Africa!!!
