I find it hilarious when ANC marches effectively on itself: Eusebius McKaiser

The African National Congress (ANC) Gauteng is leading what it calls the People’s March to the Union Buildings in Pretoria today.

The party says the march is against e-tolls, the recent fuel hikes, increases in VAT, escalating data costs and the poor state of public transport.

Eusebius McKaiser says the conflation between party and state is interesting.

READ: ANC Gauteng to lead People’s March and protest against e-tolls

When it's convenient for these guys to remember the difference between party and state, then they want to milk that distinction so that you don't get to throw stompies at them for what is being done by the people that have been seconded into the state.

And then on another occasion, they want to go into caucus chambers and use their political entitlement to then tell the same comrades they have put in a position of power in the state what to do in terms of the mandate of the party.

He adds that he finds it hilarious when the ANC marches effectively on itself.
