UNITED DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT

MEDIA RELEASE


EASTERN CAPE AN ANC CINDERELLA PROVINCE 

MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY CEDRIC FROLICK, MP

The ANC Minister of Finance has made no provision to assist the disaster areas in the Eastern Cape nor has the ANC provincial government provided the Minister with the facts to do so.

This record of non-achievement by an ANC run province has to be compared with the Western Cape, where R15 million was made available within a week to bring relief to disaster-hit communities.

It is simply not good enough for the Minister of Welfare to declare a portion of the Eastern Cape as a disaster area, without arming the Minister of Finance with the required information to do anything about it.

This is just another example of ANC big promises, little delivery. It, furthermore, once again illustrates the by now well-known incapacity of the Eastern Cape ANC government.
This provincial government, as well as the Minister of Welfare, have to take full responsibility for the present plight of the people there. The people have, once again, been taken for a ride!
