PAN Africanist Congress (PAC) national executive committee member and proportional representation councillor candidate in Lukhanji Mpolose Mangqangwana, pictured, might make a comeback to local government after the elections.
What do you think is the biggest challenge facing local government?
There is no new challenge facing local government. The challenges are the work of politicians and the PAC is not a political but a revolutionary party. Our duty is to liberate the poor from hopelessness and poverty.
In South Africa, more than 2.1 million Africans go to sleep without knowing if they will get a meal the next day. Africans are not free in this democratic SA. Democracy belongs to the beneficiaries of apartheid and co-opted black peddlers and apartheid reformists who are paid to cheat the poorest of the poor.
What would your party’s two main focal areas be if it won the elections?
Our focus as the party would be to return what belongs to its rightful owners – land and the wealth of the country. We don’t want the half loaf but the whole loaf of bread. If what you see today is freedom, it means Africans have to stand up by voting PAC – the instrument of liberation.
If your party won elections, how would you handle the issue of capital budget underspending?
Our position is very clear on that, the budget is an instrument of bringing services to the poor. Tenders will be banned should the PAC come into power. The PAC will build an able state that will provide all services to the people. We will bring free education to every child, whether rich or poor.
Why should people vote for your party?
People should vote for the PAC as the PAC has proved to be their instrument of liberation.
PAC founder Robert Sobukwe died like a wounded animal. So did most Africans who died in the gallows.
We will rid the country of drugs as we will deport foreigners caught selling drugs. Rapists will be heavily sentenced and kept in solitary confinement for the rest of their lives.
