In an open letter to senior African National Congress members Derek Hanekom and Pravin Gordhan, President Jacob Zuma's son Edward brands the pair "sellouts" and accuses them of defending white monopoly capital.

The letter goes on to denounce the former finance minister as "one of the most corrupt cadres of the ANC who thinks African natives are no better than just being sugar cane cutters who must be forever subservient to a master like him for sustenance.

Open Letter to Derek Hanekom and Pravin Gordhan

I find it personally revulsive that the anti-majoritarian sell out minority in the ANC in the form of Derek Hanekom & Pravin Gordhan have brazenly and unabashedly spoke out against the majority elected ANC and South African President, Jacob Zuma, on various white monopoly capital media platforms.

Both these white monopoly capital fronts and anti-majoritarian-rule have continued to counter the programmes and policies that the ANC have now rolled out within the context put colonial and apartheid history, of radically advancing the lives of the native and particular black people of this country.

It was at the ANC's recent 5th National Policy Conference of the ANC that Derek Hanekom, a white, white monopoly capitalist offspring - who is no better than a vile dog trained to maul a black skin, showed us his true colours - and how the struggle of our people has been infiltrated by enemies - the racist-paternalistic minority. It was during one of the economic transformation commission sessions that this minority champion white racist Afrikaner  anti-majoritarian sell out vomited on our native black people - the ANC, its comrades, and on our quest to address the economic and the historical land dispossession of our people - by saying the call for 'expropriation without compensation' is nonsense.

This gutter discourse, this show of ingrained white paternalism and condescending sewer talk against our native black people and their dispossession exposes Hanekom as another Afrikaner white master who sees Black Africans as no less than hewers of wood and drawers of water.

Hanekom the white Afrikaner askari showed us clearly what he thinks of issues of black landlessness. It was Hanekom on another platfrom last year who said at the great visible discomfort of Zelda Le Grange Mandela's secretary - that Zelda Le Grange, was actually Mandela's boss. This white Afrikaner, anti majoritarian sell out was chuffed and at great ease, whether it was a slip of tongue or not, but nevertheless a reflection of a general white mindset that blacks are bestial and reckless, and that Mandela was no different and needed to be overseen. 

These are the views Hanekom deeply harbours about the black majority and our leaders. This is what he and his white-minority-capital kith and kin network really talk about when they are together outside under the warm cloudless star-studded African sky. It is this Askari Hanekom who will do anything to be an obstacle to radical economic transformation and its programmes to defend white minority privileges.

The Askari Hanekom is joined by his other minority anti-majoritarian sellout Pravin Gordhan. One of the most corrupt cadres of the ANC who thinks African  natives are no better than just being sugar cane cutters who must be forever subservient  to a master like him for sustenance. The sellout Gordhan wants natives to be perennially marginalised and always eat the left-overs dished by Indians and the white minority and its capital network. 

Gordhan as Gandhi sees black African natives as a low caste; K****rs who are subhuman and deserve no status beyond that definition. Gordhan has epitomised this by his corrupt dealings at destabilising SAA and using his own kith and kin, his nephew Ketso Gordhan and his own daughter to loot. 

By being the extension of whites and white monopoly capital stooge Gordhan shows us of his inferiority complex to whites but superior complex to natives, that whites according to him and his inner world - deserve to be accorded a perpetual status as masters, and  an African native is unimaginative to be of higher status than any race in this country. 

His constant rubbish of saying that white Monopoly Capital and Radical Economic Transformation are Bell Pottinger phrases crafted in London and not of the Congress Movement at large - show us he would do anything to distort the harsh pathetic economic reality that Africans and blacks experience.

This privileged boy from Sastri College shows us that he would defend whites and their appointed crumb eaters, the White Monopoly Capital Indunas, the black parasitical political stooges at all costs. These two minority  anti-majoritarian rule askaris see themselves bigger and better than the majority and natives of this country. They have bought the apartheid lie that their skin and race puts them as a higher level and caste than the native African majority of this country.

They should come out and tell the country and the world where they have made their wealth, for example, Pravin's interests in pharmaceutical companies besides being a pharmacist himself and billions that went missing during his tenure as finance minister, and as for Mr Hanekom I will elaborate in the next series of these open letters soon.
