SEDIBENG. – The South African Communist Party (SACP) intends to embark on rigorous projects that include winning back disgruntled members from the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), an amnesty campaign on rates and taxes to all working class households and indigents, making sure that the ANC alliance retains the municipalities it currently rules and that it also wins the Midvaal Local Municipality in next year’s local municipal elections.

SACP’s Vaal District Excecutive Member Sello Maetso told Sedibeng Ster that his party has noted a number of developments in the district which affect the working class.
The SACP Vaal District is calling for an amnesty of tariffs related to debts (payment of rates and taxes) for all indigent and working class residents of Sedibeng. He adds that the current process that the Emfuleni Local Municipality (ELM) is using to employ the MBD company for collection of revenues needs to be halted.
The selling to MDB of the debtors book at a low cost should also be reviewed.
Maetso stresses further that they (SACP) are not obsessed with who should be the executive mayors next year, but opine that their duty as the SACP is to ensure that they are part-and-parcel of the election machinery in preparation for the 2016 local government elections.
“We are therefore fully aware that such a huge task won’t succeed through big mouth with no action on the ground.
It is therefore on this note that the SACP is preparing to welcome back a huge number of members from EFF coming from the Vanderbijlpark sub-district,” said Maetso.
The membership coming from EFF are said to be coming back to join the party because they have realised that the SACP is the only “vanguard of the working class and no mimickers can succeed in this regard.”
