CampaignsOne of the roles of a civil rights organisation is to address issues that may have a negative impact on society. Some of the most important campaigns that AfriForum undertakes are aimed against hate speech, farm murders and corruption.
AfriForum’s anti-corruption unit was necessitated by the fact that corruptions erupted like a cancer during the Zuma government and brought the country to its knees. Although Zuma is no longer President and an investigation into corruption has since been launched, it remains an open question if all guilty parties would be brought to book.
“I believe in the rule of law. AfriForum’s private prosecuting unit gives me the opportunity to help ensure that justice prevails, no matter the position of the person who committed corruption. AfriForum and I are now able to prosecute people who are not being prosecuted by the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) ourselves.” – Adv. Gerrie Nel.
The ANC recently announced that the party had drawn up a list of farms to be expropriated without compensation. AfriForum obtained a list of farms that have been identified for expropriation which is being circulated in the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform.
National health insurance
AfriForum strongly opposes National Health Care (NHI) and believes that this would be just another unrealistic, socialist government project that would limit and ultimately destroy the public’s freedom, as well as the freedom of doctors and other healthcare providers.
