Leftist stance of Zuma's administration makes 2nd term vital for working class

2012-04-29 13:59:15.0 | Reader Review |

HEALTH Minister Aaron Motsoaledi's announcement that Tshwane's poorest residents stand to be the first beneficiaries of the National Health Insurance (NHI) is inspiring and confirms the leftist approach of the current Zuma administration.

The Zuma administration clearly has not deviated from the resolutions passed at Polokwane and previous ANC resolutions.

The poor people of South Africa have sometimes been neglected, and so it is good that Zuma is unmoved in his decision to rope in communists to work with him.

It seems clear that soon we will be having more pro-poor and pro-working class ministers.

With these facts in mind, it is therefore important that all unionists, including Irvin Jim and Zwelinzima Vavi, should support President Zuma serving a second term in office.

The space that Zuma has given to the working class is a space that workers did not enjoy under the Thabo Mbeki administration.

It is therefore logical that it is to the benefit of the working class that Zuma continues leading the country and the ANC as we move forward.
