This is our view:
- We believe SOUTH AFRICA AND HER PEOPLE COME FIRST. Respect for our country, our constitution and all our people must surpass loyalty to any party, persons, business interests or ideology.
- We are fatigued by unfulfilled election promises and the ongoing failure to deliver on the basic requirements for the maintenance of human dignity and development.
- We are gravely concerned about the current self-indulgent political elite who openly benefit themselves at the expense of the entire country, including those who are in most dire need of support: our poor and vulnerable.
- We are appalled and dismayed at the leading members of the ANC and its affiliates who continue to openly support and justify the actions of a President and Parliament found unequivocally guilty of flouting their constitutional duties.
- We believe the rot has gone way beyond President Zuma and includes ANC parliamentarians.
- The culture of the prevailing political arena is clearly manifested in the current climate of unlawfulness, power abuse and broken confidence.
- We intend to galvanise people and find a resolution to this crisis, and through this, afford new hope for all 21st century generations.
- We will defend our Constitution and help re-establish it as the bedrock of our democracy and hard-earned freedom, and a foundation upon which we can unite as people.
- We reject the ANC’s attempts to characterize all opposition to their continued maladministration as ‘Regime Change’. All political parties, including the majority party are bound by the Constitution. Ours is a call to remove the violators of our Constitution – nothing more, nothing less.
In order to arrest the rot that has set in the SA First Forum will/ has expressed its view on various matters that has a key impact on the rights of all South Africans; ensure compliance with the Constitution; and speak out against malfeance.
