The ANC Has a Good Story To Tell

03 March 2014, 12:39

This year, 2014, marks 20 years of freedom and democracy in South Africa. Twenty years ago, 1994, all South Africans irrespective of colour, creed, gender or class went to the polls to vote for a government of their choice and their love.

When the IEC declared the election results in 1994, the ANC was overwhelmingly supported by South Africans to become the ruling party. Nelson Mandela was elected the first ever president of a free and democratic South Africa. It was on the occasion of Mandela's inauguration in 1994 that Archbishop Desmond Tutu declared South Africans the rainbow nation of God.

Since then the country has undergone transformation to make it comfortable for all South Africans. A lot has been achieved in the past twenty years, and a lot remains to be done to deliver on a better life for all.

The priority during the first phase of transition was to rid the country of the vestiges of apartheid colonialism and to launch the process of constructing a National Democratic Society.

The twenty years of freedom and democracy paint a picture that says, South Africa is a much better place than it was in 1994. However the long journey to delivering a better life for all continues.

The ANC has a good story to tell about the past 20 years of freedom and democracy. This is the story that conveys the strides made in the past two decades. It is a story that must be told and retold.

The country has entered the second phase of transition. During this phase radical socio-economic transformation will be implemented to address poverty, unemployment and inequality.
