Let’s love our beloved ANC

2015-10-08 06:00

As the ANC prepares for its national general council in Gauteng, I’d like to urge everyone attending the event to remember the 1985 letter written by the late Nelson Mandela while in prison to the Kabwe consultative conference delegates.

Mandela described unity in the ANC as the bedrock on which the organisation was founded. He further called for unity in the organisation to be at the forefront and the leadership division to come last.

I’d like to call on the delegates and national leaders to ensure that corruption is harshly dealt with for the benefit of our party’s reputation.

This will also help to advance the party’s vision of a better life for all.

I’m also calling on delegates to harshly deal with gatekeeping and the manipulation of branch membership numbers.

The Buffalo City Metro regional executive committee must be on the agenda and a decision should be taken to disband it.

I also call on the council to ensure that factionalism in the ANC is endorsed as a sin.

It must be entered as a resolution that anyone found advancing factionalism must be shown the door.

As ANC members, we should love each other and rebuild comradeship. It’s bad to see fellow comrades hating each other instead of resolving their differences. I wish the national general council all the best. Unity must be the song of the conference
