While man South Africans often get lost in the politics behind social development, a woman who supports the EFF, took the time to appreciate a DA MEC for contributing to improving issues in her community.
EFF supporter, Mandisa Mashego, put her political beliefs and loyalties aside and expressed her appreciation and gratitude to DA Gauteng Shadow Health MEC, Jack Bloom, writing that she respects his firm grasp of public healthcare issues in Gauteng. She adds that she also appreciates the sector in general.
Social media users shared their views on the distinction between politics and social reform.
Leonard Makuwa added to Mandisa’s sentiment, saying Bloom is committed to his job rather than to politics, Briefly.co.za found.
One user, Andrew Brown, suggested she jump ship to the DA and help Bloom in his efforts.
Mandisa, who believes the EFF’s intentions are to enact a “socialist revolution”, writes that the DA has a well-documented record of not only being overtly racist but also of protecting white privilege.
Another Twitter user reminded everyone that in reality it doesn’t matter about individual accomplishments if you choose to work as part of a political institution. He said that Bloom shouldn’t get comfortable because EFF intends to claim Pretoria in the elections.
