This week I interview Solidarity Chairman Flip Buys. We discuss Afrikaner autonomy, the pursuit of benevolent neglect, the need for community engagement and the benefits of the free market. Oh and also my quote of the year “you can’t out promise a socialist”.

Flip obtained a degree in Communication Studies, from the Potchefstroom University in 1988. In 1992 he obtained an honours degree in Labour Relations from the Rand Afrikaans University. He also attended courses in political economics at the University of the Witwatersrand and project management at the NWU.

Flip Buys previously served as council member and member of the executive committee of the North-West University for seven years. During this period he gained significant experience of the university setup and the activities of the university council.

Flip is executive chairperson of the Solidarity Movement, which consists of a “family” of 18 organisations and represents approximately 270 000 families. The Solidarity Movement considers itself a modern Helpmekaar movement that consists of Afrikaans community organisations. It is a federation of Afrikaans employee, social, language, culture, civil rights, media, and training institutions who believe that a community should take responsibility for itself instead of depending solely on the government or passively awaiting the future.

  1. I think Flip Buys is a fresh air on the political scene. He has a cool head and is well read & informed and should allay a lot of the ANC’s paranoia re Afrikaners

  2. In my view although Blacks are in government as majority, they are still lacking behind economically. While the Afrikaners who benefited themselves under the apartheid system are still well off in this democracy, they own vast land and enjoy economic monopoly. In my view blacks should own their own black solidarity movement to demand redress of the legacy of apartheid to uplift blacks that are still suffering in this country.
