KZN ANC seeks rigorous induction

2012-05-09 14:27

Durban - The KwaZulu-Natal ANC wants a more rigorous process to induct new members into the party, Business Day reported on Wednesday.

"The selfish pursuit of self-interest and factional interest are now placed above the interest of the entire organisation and the people as a whole," reads part of a document to be discussed at the party's policy conference in June.

African National Congress provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala said a new rigorous induction process for members should include extending the probation period from one week to six months, and require prospective members to undergo "compulsory political membership induction".

Zikalala said the party should also conduct background checks. Another proposal was that a member had to serve for at least five years before being allowed to take up a leadership position.

This was to ensure those who were elected to national or provincial leadership positions were "tried and tested".

    The only reason they don't want new members to put their interests before that of the anc is because the the stolen money would need to be divided amongst more people.

    I applaud this move, same as I applaud the inroads into Afrikaner communities, though I would also plad with the ANC to have a same indaba with their rural voters, who comprise the bulk of their support.

    Compulsory political induction? How to be a good cadre,see no evil etc.Obey/obey/obey.Remember, dont think, you will weaken the party.Do not ask why communists lead the ANC.Vote for the info bill,to much knowledge will confuse you.DA leadership will bring many job opportunities,this will force you to get a job,what a terrible thought.
