Ace Magashule To Deliver Poor Whites


Ace Magashule brought the residents to tears,
after he promised to secure their land, even if it means expropriating it. These residents were mostly poor white community
members of Hermanus. Magashule paid a visit to the former holiday
resort, now home to dozens of families, while he was on the election campaign trail, on
Wednesday 24 April 2019. Many families face eviction, after the Overstrand
Municipality sold the 22ha plot of land, on which they were living, to a private buyer. The visit was almost foiled, when Magashule’s
entourage, was denied access to the park by security guards, who had locked the gate. The police were called to intervene, and the
ANC supporters eventually made their way inside, to speak to the residents. Speaking to sobbing residents, Magashule claimed
the DA were “worse racists, removing white people from where they have been”. Videos from his official Twitter page, showed
him handing out ANC T-shirts, and telling the residents in Afrikaans, that they should
vote for the ANC on 08 May 2019. “Nobody removes you from here. The land cannot be stolen from you, you guys. The DA is claiming to be a non-racial party. It’s really worse racists, removing white
people from where they have been,” said Magashule. He claimed, that land was “given to individuals
who were leasing” the Paradise Park property. He vowed to “fight and remain” with the residents
in their struggle, to avoid being evicted. One of the residents can be seen on a video,
speaking with Magashule, saying that they bought their houses on the land. Magashule then tells him in Afrikaans, “That’s
why we say today, the ANC is the only hope, for white and black people.” In another video, a female resident claims
to have lived there for three years, and that she was going to be moved to Stanford, as
part of the eviction process. She pleads with Magashule, claiming that she
can’t go to Stanford. Magashule told the resident that she must
stay in Paradise Park. “Don’t go anywhere. Stay here. We are going to make sure that even if we
have to expropriate this land, because initially this land belonged to government, and somebody
was leasing it, and in the middle of the lease, somebody wants to say, I’m the owner. It can’t be, this is the corruption we are
supposed to be investigating,” he said, before handing her a T-shirt, and telling her to
vote ANC. The woman broke down in tears, and expressed
her appreciation. Last year, the municipality deployed a social
worker, to conduct interviews with 25 affected people after the owner sought an eviction
order. Paradise Park, situated on more, or less 22ha
of land, just off the R43 in Vermont, was sold in 2017. The buyer has not been able to take full possession
of the property, because there are still people living in the park, and concern was raised
about their fate. Please check in the description box below,
