B-BBEE is not broad-based but is very narrow-based - caller

DA leader Mmusi Maimane spoke about the party ditching the B-BBEE policy that is only benefiting a few people that are politically connected to the ruling party and leaving out those that are rightfully deserving out in the cold.

I'm looking forward to a new South Africa because a lot of people are suffering while having degrees, they have no jobs and few that are given opportunities they just buy cars.

The BEE certificate is just sold to white people who employ other people. Black people are out here suffering because of that BEE, it is not inclusive to everybody.

Shadrack, Caller

The DA is going down come the 2019 elections, really the DA is going to lose all posts in Parliament, provincial government and local government.

Stan, Caller

I respect the DA's views over and above what the ANC has or hasn't been able to do in the last 25 years. I think Mmusi is a bit misunderstood and I don't think he is saying scrap BEE all together.

Mark, Caller

What he is saying is that the way it's been used at the moment and the way it has been applied, it's only a fraction of people that have benefitted. It is not broad-based as it is implied but it is very narrow-based.
