WCape lurching from crises to chaos - Lynne Brown

Lynne Brown
11 November 2012

ANC leader says rather than traipsing off to Nkandla Helen Zille should've been paying attention to issues closer to home (Nov 8)

WCape lurching from crises to chaos - Lynne BrownMember statement by Lynne Brown MPP, leader of the ANC opposition, to the Western Cape Provincial Parliament, November 8 2012:

Hangberg, Kapteinsklip, Makhaza, Hawston, De Doorns and too many places are covered in smoke and blood as the Western Cape lurches from crises to chaos!

Poor schools are closed down; too many people are mowed down, evicted, abused, robbed and raped. This province has the highest number of violent protests in the country!

The DA government does not respond to the cries of our people. Their stock responses to protests, cries for help from the poor, have been met with spin and blaming others.

But where in the world is the Western Cape premier? Like a modern day Marco Polo, she takes reporters on many disingenuously guised excursions.

She pops up for the next media circus with more reporters than supporters.

Failed attention-seeking stunts like the battle of Braamfontein are veiled by deception, tweets and spin!

The premier is like a self-appointed inspector whose only task seems to have priority issues in other provinces and an obsession with the president.

She and her party opportunistically call for investigations, but then stoop to cheap political point scoring to attack our democracy; usurp, pre-empt and undermine the very same Constitutional watchdog probes.

This province experiences her absence during disturbances and routine awfulness.

Where was the premier when things got ugly last Sunday in Hawston? She diverted attention hundreds of kilometres from her province!

Shame on the DA for poor leadership! Shame on the deeply uncaring DA! Shame on the premier!

Issued by the ANC Western Cape, November 8 2012

You're a low-life in a sleazy organisation
Helen Zille did what any politician of the opposition should do - investigate misappropriation of public funds. The crises and the chaos is caused by the same scum who misappropriate public funds. Stop your nonsense and the crises and chaos will end.

Beware -- politician at work!
What will the ANC do when (or if) it regains power in the Western Cape? How will the ANC solve these problems? Perhaps they will apply the solutions which have enjoyed success in the other 8 ANC governed provinces?

Then the Western Cape will be . .more

WCape lurching from crises to chaos...
and that's all because of dirty ANC destabilization politics! All aimed at hiding the endemic corruption and incompetence and corruption of the anc. The anc has become a destabilising Third Force in this national tragedy across the land. And the poor farm . .more

lynne (with a small l)..
The WC is the best performing province in the country, and funnily enough the only DA managed one.

This in itself publicly displays your dishonesty.

Bearing in mind the following:

Can't believe this....
This scumabg from the vile ANC has the sheer audacity to write such sh!t.

SHAME ON YOU, LYNNE BROWN!
There was a time, Lynne Brown, when I had a tiny bit of respect for you - when you acknowledged that when the ANC governed the Western Cape (under former premier Ebrahim Rasool) there was massive corruption and you, Mcebisi Skwatsha and Max Ozinsky . .more

You are behind all of this trying to make WC ungovernable!

Why has ANC blocked the commission of inquiry into the lack of policing in Khyalitsha b headed by Vusi Pikoli and Cathy O'Regan ? It is known that as ex head of the NPA and ex Constitutional Court judge that both their integrity is beyond any . .more

Lynn Brown
In my eyes you are as inept and devious as your colleagues Fransman and Ehrenreich
Stop trying to make the Western Cape ungovernable and spare a thought for the poor people you are using as fodder.
I cannot believe that you can be such traitors . .more

@ DM
Why is the ANC trying to block the Commission of Inquiry into policing in Khayelitsha?

According to Zackie Achmat of the Social Justice Commission, who leaked the report from a SAPS task team investigating the Khayelitsha Police . .more

The morons are on the march...

With Lynne Brown in the vanguard...

What a load of hyper-emotive fact-shy drivel, even for an ANC politician.

What hypocrisy from Brown!
"Where was the premier when things got ugly last Sunday in Hawston?"

In that case, where was the premier of North West or, anyone from the ANC hierarchy during its government's Sharpeville-style Marikana massacre. Shame on YOU Brown and the ANC . .more

Poor Lynne Brown, rather look at all the other provinces where there is real chaos and ANC rule.

Still the best run province in the country!
Since the ANC was kicked out, the Western Cape and Cape Town became the best-run province and metro respectively in the country. We remember the corrupt ways of Lynne Brown and her crew when they were in charge of the Province with hundreds of millions of . .more

Your angry language exposes your real fears
Be careful what you wish for Lynne.
Your brethren love the Western Cape, because when they have international visitors they can at least go to one place in the country that works; say thank you DA.

Just what are you on about: you shout about the Western Cape and then you throw your toys about Braamfontein. Since when is this in the Western Cape!
Your slip is showing: you would never have thought of going to Inkandla; way above your level of . .more

the fat lady sings...er yelps
So the DA lurches from crisis to crisis?
If this isn't classic projection I didn't major in psychology.
Your ANC is imploding,exploding and eroding,while the DA tops every performance measure including your governments' own scales.
