ANC WOMEN'S LEAGUE BOKONE BOPHIRIMA IS NOT SHAKEN BY THE SILLY ACTS OF THE SO-CALLED NW BUSINESS FORUM


The African National Congress Women's League (ANCWL) in Bokone Bophirima has noted the hopelessness with which the so-called North West Business Forum continues to attack the ANC and its other structures.

We as the ANC Women's League would like to make it clear to these frustrated businesspeople that we are an autonomous structure of the ANC and take our own decisions. We are not confused when we defend the good work that our Provincial Chairperson Cde Supra Mahumapelo is doing because we talk about something that we and the people of Bokone Bophirima know.

We will not allow anyone who has left the ANC to come back and want to claim control of what they failed to show confidence in and work hard to build, as in the case of some in the so-called NW Business Forum. It is very clear that the peace and unity that reigns in the province since Cde Supra became Provincial Chairperson and Premier of the province doesn't sit well with others.

We are not worried by people who left the ANC and in the process lost touch with what is happening in the movement. It is because of that lack of knowledge that they are waging a dirty war for resources because they have forgotten the teachings of the ANC.

Our ANC President Cde Jacob Zuma stressed the importance of unity in struggle in the January 8 Statement and as the ANC Women's League we recognize that part of our duty is to defend the ANC while the movement ensures that we achieve all that we have set out to do for our people.

This year's January 8 Statement called for the celebration of the life of the ANC's long-serving President, Cde Oliver Reginald Tambo, who unashamedly fought for the emancipation of women. For the first time in our province we have a Provincial Chairperson who lives those values in Cde Supra. Women have found a voice and this can be seen in the positions of influence they occupy in the province, from municipalities to the provincial government administration led by Director General Dr Lydia Sebego and the South African Police Service whose Provincial Commissioner is a woman, Lieutenant General Baile Motswenyane.

In a province as rural as Bokone Bophirima, we acknowledge the introduction of the Villages, Townships and Small Dorpies (VTSD) economic approach, which is breathing life into our previously neglected poor areas. We know that it is largely this policy that is driving the so-called NW Business Forum up the wall because VTSD ensures that even small businesses are empowered, unlike in the past when some established businesspeople ate alone. Our Provincial Chairperson has now opened the space for everyone to benefit. As women and mothers we know how allowing people like these disgruntled businesspeople to cause chaos in the province will impact on the poor, a burden that will mostly be felt by women.

We know that the same people who recorded the two songs that they are trying to use to cause havoc in the province are not doing this for the first time. They failed in the past when they tried to cause divisions between the current Premier Supra Mahumapelo and the former Premier Thandi Modise by releasing a song that spoke ill of Cde Thandi. They are trying again and hiding behind supporting the songs because they agree with their content while they know very well that they are the funders and creators of these songs. Theirs is more politically bankrupt because they cannot even come out and stand for their own ridiculous acts.
