There is a place for minorities in the ANC

2008-08-22 00:00

We read with interest in the media that some of our comrades feel marginalised. This marginalisation is apparently strongly felt in the Indian community, who feel that the ANC is ignoring them and disregards their contribution towards the struggle to emancipate South Africa.

There have been calls for the revival of the Natal Indian Congress as a means to address the perceived marginalisation. I would like to advise against this thinking. Instead, as Chairperson of the ANC, and therefore one of the Alliance Leadership Collective, I invite those who have concerns and contributions that could improve the situation to come forward and discuss them with the leaders of our movement. We must honestly engage and seek solutions together as members of the ANC. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
