Muslim voters hold the balance of power in the Western Cape with 29% or more eligible Muslim voters in the City of Cape says president of AL JAMA-AH Ganief Hendricks in a post on its website after the DA provincial elections in Cape Town this weekend and its claim that it will get 60% of the Cape vote in 2014. The Party noted that not a single Muslim was voted into office and Muslim councillors are being purged from the Metro.
AL JAMA-AH SEEN AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE DA AS DA ELECTION TABLE STORMED
The good news is that ALJAMA won a seat in each of the municipalities due to the hard work of its candidates who took time off from running feeding schemes and other community projects to campaign door to door to get voter support.
The IEC Western Cape herewith releases the final provisional results of the Local Government Elections 2011 for the Western Cape. The Electoral Commission of South Africa will confirm the official results and declare the Local Government Elections 2011.
It has been sad for many Muslim women to see other women voting and they prevented to vote by religious restrictions some by their husbands. A separate que for women who choose this will open the doors for all in…
Muslims will turn against the Constitution of the country if government listens to human rights bodies , gender and gay activists, Muslim modernists and anti-religion groups to change, modify and reshape the shariah Muslim marriage laws to fully comply with the Constitution, says Party leader and mayoral candidate in the City of Cape Town for the AL JAMA-AH political party Ganief Hendricks. This negative attitude towards the shariah will make it difficult for the Party to position the Muslim community as the most peaceful community in the country. Moreso after government has introduced laws repugnant to the shariah on abortion, same sex marriages, gambling and shebeens and has been soft on drug lords and gangsters because of constitutional restraints.
“AFTER ALL THE LOCAL MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS IN MAY 2011 IS ALL ABOUT THEIR FUTURE”
“HELP 1000 YOUNG WOMEN AND MEN IN PROVIDING BETTER SERVICE DELIVERY FOR YOU AND FOR THEIR OWN FUTURE”
Most young men and women between the ages of 18 to 24 are unemployed and face a bleak future. It is time that this section of society be given more opportunities. They are our future. Employers will be encouraged to give them jobs by getting a subsidy from the treasury of about R1000 towards their monthly salary for at least two years. The Aljama-ah Political Party wants to take this further and help these young people to win seats as ward councillors in the 2011 municipal elections. The Party has launched a recruitment campaign to attract and select young potential councillors, train them to be councillors and help them campaign to win seats. The Party has also launched an SMS fund raising project to get the community to help finance the recruitment,
Muslims have special obligations in terms of the shariah towards refugees and on the occasion of “ Africa Day” AL JAMA-AH which has a mandate from thousands of Muslims who voted for the Party during the 2009 elections will lobby for South Africa to more fully comply with its obligations in terms of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Refugees. This should also be included in the school curriculum. The City of Cape Town and its City Fathers missed an opportunity during the past year to show the world the true compassionate nature of its citizens and should have done more to help refugees with their plight. This should be a key Manifesto point in the run up to the 2011 Municipal elections.
