The Political-Economy of Cape Town

You know what I like Western Cape politics? That it is so 'divided'. The power is diluted, and that is a good thing. There is also the element of competition that comes into play. So what if it cannot last? Then another group takes over for a while. This shifting of political power will allow the development of a class of officials immune to such actions, who are focussed on the duties of office. They, along with the citizenry, will become gatvol of the politicians, and leave them to their chambers of hot air.

Our president says we do not need a strong opposition, yet he is a champion of the "free market". So economically, we must have strong competition, but not politically?
