THE ANC has its weaknesses and we are working on them,” said William Bulwane, the party’s provincial secretary.

Bulwane addressed reporters on Wednesday (02/03) in the Kaizer Sebothelo building on the resolutions reached by attendees of the Alliance Summit held recently.

With this statement he referred to cadre deployment and the reshuffling of government officials to higher positions despite their failure to execute their duties in former positions.

Bulwane said the party gave potential candidates an opportunity to occupy key positions in the bid of executing the policies of the party and delivering services to the citizens of the country.

He said unfortunately some of the individuals placed in key positions failed to serve their communities.

“We give potential candidates a chance so that they do not say the party denied them the opportunity to serve their communities.”

During the joint sitting, which was also attended by the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) and the South African Communist Party (SACP), Bulwane emphasised the importance of tackling the issues of job creation, racism and student struggles.

The secretary said social cohesion and building bridges at the University of the Free State (UFS) were critical causes to the party.

According to Bulwane, the party, along with stakeholders, had engaged Jonathan Jansen, rector of the university, as well as varsity management and students to discuss transformation at the institution.

Bulwane said students had complained that transformation at the institution was moving at a snail’s pace. He, however, condemned the violence that ensued at the institution.

“The university management must work together with students and labour to restore peace and stability.”

The party is now planning to host a symposium which will be led by pastors across all colour lines to assist the province in dealing with racial tension.
