SA still racially divided - Ramaphosa

Johannesburg - South Africa is still a gender and racially divided country, ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa said on Tuesday.

"The African National Congress is committed to building a nation that is socially cohesive and close the racial gap that exists in this country," he told editors in Parktown, Johannesburg.

He said the party would use various programmes and projects to ensure South Africa developed into a socially cohesive nation.

"We address social cohesion because we believe it is not just an event but an important process.

"We also use sport as an instrument to build the nation as it usually unites the nation."

He said the country showed cohesion in 2010 during the Soccer World Cup, when visitors were welcomed.

Human settlement would also be used to enhance social cohesion.

"We build communities and societies that are not divided in any form."

Ramaphosa was accompanied by the ANC's national social cohesion committee.
