Learn discipline from ANC veterans, says Zuma

2014-03-10 00:00

PRESIDENT Jacob Zuma has called on ANC volunteers to emulate veterans who were disciplined during the liberation struggle.

“Our generation was disciplined and not once did we insult the leaders. The youth league was where future leaders were groomed,” Zuma said at an event honouring liberation struggle veteran Riot Mkhwanazi this weekend.

Zuma also said they had serious views on issues in their time, but expressed their views in a disciplined manner.

Mkhwanazi, who was last year awarded the Order of Mendi, served 10 years with Zuma on Robben Island after they were arrested for political activities in 1963.

On Friday, Zuma delivered an address at the launch of a gala dinner in Empangeni aimed at raising funds for the Riot Mkhwanazi Bursary Fund to assist financially needy students.

The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal said Zuma pledged R100 000 towards the bursary fund.
