FMF INVITATION 25 APRIL: CAN 8 MAY GIVE US COMPETITION IN GOVERNMENT WITH NO DOMINANT PARTY- WHAT ARE THE CHANCES?
22 APRIL 2019
Can 8 May give us competition in government with no dominant party – what are the chances?
Previously billed as “From Freedom Fighter to fighter for freedom – Elections 2019…”
Speaker: Temba Nolutshungu, FMF Director
Would a particular political party or a coalition be better or worse for individual and economic freedom in South Africa?
About Temba A Nolutshungu
Temba has been the Free Market Foundation liaison with Parliament for many years. He is familiar with all the parties, their leaders, and the policies they promote. That he is political-party neutral allows him to provide a unique insight into the potential outcomes of the coming elections, As one of the pioneers of the black consciousness movement his inevitable collision with the apartheid state saw him traverse the ideological spectrum from an inveterate communist to an advocate of classical liberalism. Temba ascribes this metamorphosis to the fact that the apartheid state was omnipotent, dictating the lives of blacks from cradle to grave. Having been detained twice under the Terrorism Act, his resolve to be instrumental in limiting the power of government was strengthened by his immersion in the writings of Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell.

ABOUT the FMF
The FMF is an independent, non-profit, public benefit organisation, created in 1975 by pro-free market business and civil society national bodies to work for a non-racial, free and prosperous South Africa. As a policy organisation it promotes sound economic policies and the principles of good law. As a think tank it seeks and puts forward solutions to some of the country’s most pressing problems: unemployment, poverty, growth, education, health care, electricity supply, and more. The FMF was instrumental in the post-apartheid negotiations and directly influenced the Constitutional Commission to include the property rights clause: a critical cornerstone of economic freedom.
The FMF has a wealth of information in papers, articles and opinion pieces available on the website which can influence the public debate and present alternative policies to the people of South Africa. Please look at our website www.freemarketfoundation.com. Also see Facebook and Twitter.
