Maimane accuses ANC of excluding blacks people from the economy

Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane says the African National Congress has not done enough to include black people in the economy.

Vusi Maimane was addressing supporters at the old Johannesburg Stock Exchange building in Newtown, where he slated the ANC's institution of BEE policies.

Maimane said the ANC government was using BEE as a reminder of how race was used to exclude people of colour, and while BEE was a way forward, he accused the ANC of only using it to empower a select few.

He said the governing party had cemented these divisions by introducing black economic empowerment policies that benefitted a small pool of politically-connected individuals and had not empowered the masses as was advertised.

However, Maimane said that while the DA is committed to inclusive BEE strategies, he said those strategies needed to be geared towards empowering more people without being beneficial to a select few.

“We don’t want a Gupta economy, we want a South African economy. We don’t want an ANC economy, we want a South African economy for all. We reject an economy that benefits a few at the expense of many.” he said.
