Playing racial cards in Parliament is a dangerous game

5 September 2019

The FF Plus is worried about the fact that minorities in South Africa, particularly the white population, are painted as the enemy in Parliament. The tendency to make use of racial politics in Parliament is dangerous and must stop

Such labelling is dangerous as it leads to unrest in South Africa, as is currently the case. The ANC is alleging that criminal elements are to blame for the violence on the country's roads and in its cities and towns.

The FF Plus, however, believes that xenophobia plays a significant role and that criminals are exploiting the situation.
