Newly launched Socialist Workers Party will contest next years' elections
The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) has launched a new political party called the Socialist Workers Party that aims to contest the 2019 elections.
General Secretary of Numsa Irvin Jim says even though new political parties in South Africa have not succeeded, this party plans to champion a workers' mandate.
Yes, people are loyal to symbols, but the bottom line is for the past two decades, the South African economy has plunged and the working class is the victim of poverty and inequality because the ANC didn't champion a revolutionary programme.Irvin Jim, Secretary General of Numsa
Jim believes that the country needs to nationalise all commanding structures like state-owned companies thus championing the needs of workers.
