EFF policies and we will not be surprised when the rest of the government adopts this approach. We also want to warn the new premier that in his attempts at increasing state capacity he will be challenged at every turn by those only interested in the politics of the stomach. The reality is that the tender system has been used as a means for self-enrichment for those in government and those connected to the ruling party.

Increasing state capacity will not only improve service delivery and standards of living, but it will also create millions of jobs. If government is to build 3,9 million homes, tar roads and build schools, state companies are needed. Under an EFF government there will be a state construction company, a state cement company and many other states companies whose sole mandate will be to deliver services. These companies will be able to employ millions of South Africans in quality jobs that will provide benefits. An EFF government will also increase exist capacity, will employ more doctors, nurses, teachers, engineers, plumbers and electricians, all of which are needed if we are to provide quality services to our people.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
