Stop development-aid to chaotic SA: EU-commission

Two Dutch Euro-parliamentarians Barry Medlener and Lucas Hartong to European Commission: “Stop 980-million Euro development-aid funds to South Africa 

“ There is no sign of social stability in South Africa – the EU taxpayers are wasting their money…”

The European parliament’s press officer Laurens VanDelft  issued the following on behalf of the Party for Freedom faction –  in response to the violent pro-Malema rioting in Johannesburg on August 30 and the growing social unrest in that country:

 Aug 31,2011 BRUSSELS – Euro-MPs  Barry Madlener and Lucas Hartong want that the European Commission to immediately stop giving its development-aid programme in which millions of Euros are sent too South Africa purportedly to ‘advance social stability’ in that country. The EU budgeted an amount of 980-million for this purpose from 2007 to 2013 – . Madlener and Hartong point out that ‘there is no sign of social stability in South Africa and that the EU is wasting the taxpayers’ money on this useless project.

US embassy: ‘ Increasing violence towards whites, and attacks against white journalists, indicates a rapidly-deteriorating political climate in South Africa…

The two MPs point out that  the US embassy yesterday warned its citizens in South Africa to have themselves registered – and to also inform the embassy of the actual threats of violence in that country. The US embassy said in its statement that due to – amongst others –  the public violence surrounding the public hearing against ANC youth leader Malema, there has been a ‘rapidly-deteriorating political climate in South Africa especially towards whites’; and that ‘specifically white journalists are seriously hampered in carrying out their funcitons as representatives of the free press.”

Comments Madlener: “Everybody can observe that there is no indication of any increasing social stability in South Africa. The EU is spending its money on projects like these at the costs of the taxpayers, to make themselves look good in South Africa. This is another useless project which once again shows the need that the EU must stop giving money to development-aid.’

He is raising the following questions with the European Commission:

1.   Does the Commission, as does the PVV, agree that the current set-up of the ANC-ruled South African government does not exactly indicate that they are creating social stability and social cohesion?

2.   Can de Commission indicate why – despite the strongly-increasing level of social- and political unrest in South Africa — so much money is still being donated from the EU-budget to this country?

3.   Does the Commission, as does the PVV, also admit that all the financial help which has thus far gone to South Africa from the EU, with the specific intention to ‘increase social stability’,  has clearly proven to be totally useless and insufficient?

4.   Does the Commission intend to now stop this ‘development-aid’ to South Africa due to the growing socio-political unrest?  And if not, why not?
