The enemy is unmasked. FNB shows its true colours
The African National Congress Youth League is deeply angered and disappointed by the so-called You Can Help campaign allegedly launched by First National Bank. We say allegedly, because until now, we find it impossible to believe that a bank formed and sustained by the hard work and toil of the South African people could so crudely turn on the very people who guarantee its livelihood.
Allegedly, because it is intolerable to attempt to understand why First National Bank would agitate to destabilize the very same country that, through its many tribulations and triumphs, has afforded FNB a safe and secure environment from which to conduct business, prosper and grow.
Allegedly, because young people are used in a callous and cruel manner, and we have to wonder whether indeed its Chief Executive, Michael Jordaan, would not have the courage to face the nation, the government and the ANC, when he agitates for an overthrow of our government, would he indeed hide behind the faces of young, innocent children, used for the whims and entertainment of capital to drive what is undoubtedly a treasonous agenda?
The campaign claims to be a call to action to assist resolve "the challenges' of South Africa as supposedly told through the mouths of young people. The very first fact is that this campaign does no such thing. FNB, in an obviously lame attempt to recreate an Arab Spring of some sort in South Africa, uses children to make unproven claims of a "government rife with corruption", indeed if this is the case, why does FNB not "help" as they purport and bring these allegations to the fore so that the law enforcement agencies may bring such criminals to book?
