ANC BOKONE BOPHIRIMA ON DESPERATE ACTIONS BY THE NW BUSINESS FORUM


The African National Congress (ANC) in Bokone Bophirima is not surprised by the yawning attempts of the so-called North West Business Forum to tarnish the image of the ANC and its Provincial Chairperson Cde Supra Mahumapelo.

Our Provincial Chairperson and the ANC have been and will always be consistent in speaking and acting against anyone who seeks to do anything that undermines the unity and stability of the ANC.

The question members and supporters of the ANC, as well as all the citizens of Bokone Bophirima should ask is if the North West Business Forum has known all along that CDs against former Premier Cde Thandi Modise as they claim in their statement, why have they kept quiet about it? When the said CD that carried a song about Cde Thandi was released four years ago, the Provincial Chairperson and the ANC condemned it and called on ANC members and branches to give us any information that could help get to the bottom of its recording. Cde Thandi was made aware of these efforts.

We challenge the so-called NW Business Forum to produce evidence to the effect to support their allegations about who produced the song campaigning against Cde Thandi, which studio it was recorded in, who is the artists who recorded it and who funded the production of this CD. The ANC and its Provincial Chairperson will be left with no choice but to take legal measures against individuals who accuse them of being behind the CD and the NW Business Forum itself.

We are also surprised that in his statement one of the NW Business Forum leaders Sello Mogodiri mentions how he and others have contributed financially to the ANC. There are many people who donate to the ANC and unlike Mogodiri and some of his friends, they do not expect any favours for doing that. If Mogodiri's donations came with expectations, we unfortunately have to dissappoint him because that's not how the ANC and its government work. The ANC and its Chairperson will not go to such pathetic low levels of engagements.

During their opportunistic formation that included them (NW Business Forum) working and sharing platforms with both the EFF and the DA, the ANC challenged them to produce evidence regarding allegations they made against the Provincial Chairperson and they failed.

The Premier established a team led by Prof Mokgoro and the Provincial Government's DG Dr Lydia Sebego to meet the NW Business Forum and on several occassions in their meetings, they failed to produce such evidence or demonstrate any prejudice towards their businesses by the Premier as they claimed.

After all the engagements we have tried, it is clear to us as the ANC, that the NW Business Forum has declared itself an enemy of the ANC and we will treat them as such, unless their actions and words going forward prove otherwise. The ANC and its government will not be intimidated and will continue to act on individuals and companies that are given government work and do shoddy work or fail to deliver as some of the NW Business Forum members have done. Now that the ANC government wants them to be accountable, they have resorted to hiding behind dirty tricks and the so-called NW Business Forum, which is just an alliance of convenience to protect a few rich businesspeople who do not want to share the pie of work in the province with others.
