Steenhuisen believes ANC policies are to blame for unemployment

Published on

DA leader, John Steenhuisen described the ANC’s policies as “deadbeat” and the driving factor in creating the world’s worst unemployment disaster, which is currently facing the country. 

Leader of the Democratic Alliance (DA), John Steenhuisen published an opinion piece on Sunday, 29 August 2021, in which he called out the African National Congress (ANC) and its policies for having created the world’s worst unemployment disaster. Steenhuisen noted how no number of excuses or spins could begin to sugarcoat the disaster South Africa’s economy is in.

Steenhuisen emphasised that President Cyril Ramaphosa needs to step out of the Cold War Era and into the shoes of the people directly impacted by the ANC’s “deadbeat policies.” Moreover, the shoes of the small business owner, the potential international investor put off by what he called the Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) scam, as well as the shoes of the 12 million, mostly young people who are desperate for jobs because of unemployment, amongst others.

Steenhuisen believes that the country needs to start being honest about what the ruling party is, if it wants a different outcome. He further stated that if the obvious solutions to the unemployment disaster are at odds with the ANC’s sworn ideology, then it is the ideology that needs to be compromised, not the solutions. Steenhuisen concluded by stating that he believes that if this cannot happen, then the current government needs to make way for one that can make it happen.
