NUMSA Criticises NGO on Land Issue

NUMSA urges COSATU to help ANC secure 70 percent in the next election to pave the way for amendments to the property clause to speed up land redistribution

The National Union of Metal Workers of South Africa (NUMSA) has urged the Congress of the South African Trade Unions (COSATU) to work hard to ensure a 70 percent majority win for the African National Congress (ANC) in the next election, to pave the way for amendments to the property clause to speed up land redistribution.

NUMSA criticises the FW De Klerk Foundation which argues that the ANC sought to discard the country’s constitutional consensus by tampering with property rights through the green paper on land reform and the freedom of expression, among others.

NUMSA general secretary, Irvin Jim, blames what he calls the ‘ruthless constitutional defence of white monopoly capital’ and the ‘apartheid white social and cultural privileges’, for entrenching mass poverty, unemployment and extreme inequalities among people from historically-disadvantaged backgrounds.
