Manyi blames Constitution for inequality and slow economic growth

Progressive Professionals Forum (PPF) leader, Mzwanele Manyi, says the increasing rates of unemployment and inequality can be traced back to the Constitution.

Manyi says South Africa needs to have a 'sober' discussion on constitutional democracy and some parts of the Constitution which do not benefit people.

We have a situation in this country where the land is owned by a few. It's important for people to know that when you want to build an industry you cannot build it on air. You have to build on the soil.

Mzwanele Manyi, Progressive Professionals Forum leader

If you don't have the soil... it is owned by few people. This means that progression of South Africa will continue to favor those with all resources during the apartheid era.

He says the African National Congress (ANC) cannot be blamed for South Africa's problems which he says were inherited from apartheid.

When this country was taken by the African National Congress, it took over a debt ridden country.

ANC had to start with a structurally skewed and defective economy.

It has to build from the negative into a zero state, and then build from there.
