Clicks Stores Crisis The EFF’s Missed Opportunity

Political analyst Dr Lubna Nadvi says the EFF has got it wrong in their approach to shut down Clicks stores around the country. Dr Nadvi says the party had the perfect opportunity to use the advert to find constructive solutions in dealing with racism in South Africa. This could have also been used as a method to gain voters ahead of next year’s municipal elections. She says by reacting to the issue and not dealing with the substance of the problem, the EFF’s “political theatrics” will not resort to any significant solutions.
