ANC had 'robust' debates - Zuma

2012-12-20 21:18

Bloemfontein - The ANC's national elective conference had robust and constructive debates on policies, President Jacob Zuma said on Thursday.

"The culture of internal debates of the movement became visible," Zuma said in his closing address in Mangaung in the Free State.

"We have taken resolutions which will renew and transform the organisation."

Zuma said the priority was to draw up a clear plan on how to implement its policies. The plan was expected to be ready early next year.

"We need to be working on implementing our policies. We can't do anything else," he said.

Zuma said the ANC's leagues also had to work on programmes of action based on the resolutions taken at the conference.

      as young educated black man dont consider Inkandla man as my president.

      Here is s imple fact to ponder: Apartheid (a bloody disgrace) failed because it governed the whites and RULED the blacks! RULE almost always means - You Do as I say and not as I do! The blacks righfully revolted and Apartheid crumbled! I should not have to remind you that that Zuma's ANC has made it clear that they are here RULE (Do as I say, not as I DO)! There is no doubt in my mind that this time the majority of decent South Africans (all races) will revolt if this farce does not come to an end soon! Who knows perhaps the ANC's blatant disregard towards all voters might just unite us once and for all. Good bye ANC!

      Unfortunately so but please note: He used the word "work". Suggest you guys stop your plenaries and conferences and study tours and whatever excuses you can think out and try to fathom the meaning of the magic word -WORK!

    Now I am convinced that the Pres of SA is illiterate. After all the opposing views were shut down at plenary. Which coffee flavour did you drink before you presented your speech, Zuma ?
