Today's SACP is a far cry from the original

I ATTENDED the SACP congress for the fifth time since the party was unbanned. This was the biggest communist gathering but the quality was the worst.

Many young communists and those from Cosatu are ignorant about Marxism-Leninism. They only enjoy toyi-toying and booing.

Debates centred on what Blade Nzimande said and on bashing the ANC, Thabo Mbeki or Julius Malema.

Since 1921communists produced quality leadership such as Ivan Jones, Bob Hepple, Johannes Nkosi, JB Marks, Moses Kotane, Govan Mbeki, Harry Gwala, Joe Slovo and Jack Simon. Now there are 96000 communists, but no quality and that is why Nzimande is king of the blind.

Many did not read the reports and could not sing the socialist anthem. They could not participate in economic debate, so many called for nationalisation of even the wealth accumulated by people in the ANC.

In the commission that I attended, except for senior ANC and Cosatu leaders, delegates did not understand monopoly capital and globalisation. Half of them did not know who the longest-serving general secretary of the SACP was.

Interestingly, 40 percent of SACP members are not ANC or Cosatu members. Are they workerists, ultra-Left or Cope and IFP members?

If the SACP nationalises key industries and banks, will party members run them ? How many have qualifications in business administration, accounting and economics?

The day Nzimande becomes South Africa's deputy p resident and has access to tenders, he will abandon the Reds.
