Scamto - Is it Pretoria, Tshwane or both?
Sunday, 03 October 2010

 Afriforum is not an organisation that shies from controversy. With a 95% paying Afrikaaner membership base, they say" ... Afrikaaners are not on the agenda in South Africa and are increasingly being ignored."

Aside from taking Julius Malema to court and challenging ABSA over their Rugby transformation stance, they have also become embroiled in the Pretoria versus Tshwane naming debate.

Kallie Kriel, a proud African and the CEO of Afriforum  was kind enough to join Nombulelo and Tony to unpack the business of Afriforum in the Pretoria naming debate, and other pertinent issues.

When the governing party is as  strong as the ANC is, it becomes both difficult and imperative to ensure that constitutional rights are protected. One may agree, or disagree with the objectives of the organisation - but while they remain within the bounds of law they are entitled to pursue their position.

To quote Voltaire: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it".
