SACP’s Jeremy Cronin tackles SA’s struggles

2008-04-29 00:00

While there are strong indicators that South Africa could go the route of Zimbabwe, there are important differences that show it may not, Jeremy Cronin, deputy general secretary of the SA Communist Party, told a gathering yesterday. He was speaking at the Chris Hani Memorial Lecture held at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Westville campus.

Cronin added, however, that South Africa was fortunate in having important counter-tendencies, which shows that it can rise above and does not have to go on a downward spiral. He said these include the ANC’s Polokwane conference, which showed that inside the ANC there is a mass of ordinary members who, "perhaps in unclear ways don’t want to see this trajectory happen". publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
