Good News To All South African Citizens As The Western Cape Has Revealed This

The stand against Covid-19, HIV and TB in the Western Cape got a shot in the arm after the US government, through the United States Agency for International Development, signed a 5-year government-to-government agreement that amounted to $10 million. Covid-19 has proved that countries need one another, it has taught people to stand together despite being from different countries or continents.


The DA is doing a good job in the Western Cape, but there are some people who feel like National government should not allow these kind of arrangements because they basically undermine National government and its Foreign policy. Western Cape is not a country and we’re not a federal state, they cannot clinch individual deals...this may set a very bad precedent for the country.


If we look at things in another way we see that the western Cape is essentially a self governed state, they just pay their federal taxes, imagine if they were independent, getting aid from the US government is a huge deal, gaining legitimacy, hopefully next a US Aircraft carrier will be docked at cape Town harbour.
