Nzimande: ANC will emerge stronger

2012-06-28 14:38

Johannesburg - The ANC and its alliance will emerge stronger and united from its policy conference, SACP secretary general Blade Nzimande said on Thursday.

"We do hold policy conferences to plug gaps," he said on the sidelines of the policy conference at Midrand.

What was important for the SA Communist Party was the content of the discussion papers.

"President [Jacob] Zuma articulated the need for [a] radical shift; the tone set by the president calls for radical measures."

‘Nationalise Sasol and ArcelorMittal’

Nzimande was referring to the party's discussion paper on the need for a so-called "second transition" to correct economic imbalances in the country.

He said the SACP agreed with the proposal. He also said the SACP agreed with the proposal of nationalisation.

"We are clear on nationalisation. We feel Sasol and ArcelorMittal must be re-nationalised as key national entities."

Nzimande said debates at the policy conference were robust and encouraging.

"We are happy the way the conference has progressed so far... we will emerge stronger with deep, radical determination."

Discussions being finalised

The conference, on its third day, was expected to consolidate reports from commissions on the second transition and on organisational renewal.

ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu earlier dismissed reports that the idea of a second transition had been rejected.

He said discussions were still being finalised.

The ANC is meeting in Midrand for four days, starting on Tuesday, to discuss 13 policy documents ahead of its national conference in December.

The policy decisions made at the policy conference will be discussed and finalised at the national conference in Mangaung, Free State, in December.

These policies will form the basis for the ANC government's policies, new laws or amended laws.

    Blade and how does the government propose to nationalise some thing it sold many years ago both Sasol and Mittal are listed on world wide stock exchanges - talk is cheap money buys the whiskey

      emile.marais - 2012-06-28 17:54

      Well, they could always go down the Zanu-PF route and use 'indigenisation' to secure state ownership! Economics is such a drag... It makes sense why banks should be nationalized too - simply use the cash reserves stored in them to buy SASOL and Mittal - or better yet, the SARB could just print more money!

    We need our Land people, please you took long time ago so we have to take it back now actually SA is acting very slow on grabbing the land we should have done that long time...but because of those who sold us (black)were in is the time...we need to do farming as well I grow up on the rural areas so I know how to..does Mickey mouse on news 24 who doesn't like to take the land must shut up because they don't even understand the history of these country. black people are still suffering if you have a land to plant spinach, cabbage etc, there will be no poverty.. we waiting to Mafia...

      richard.hipkin - 2012-06-28 15:26

      Sorry Zakes, we don't understand troll..

      Bardy - 2012-06-28 15:35

      You are just a bunch of thieves as this land was never your in the first place! It was the Khoi-San's. And there is a lot of open ground that is not being used. Go and grab that if you want to grab something. I have a pot plant you can have too...

      Anele - 2012-06-28 16:19

      @bardy chief you out of line ,you must read the history of this country in africa we don't have white people so there is nothing which is called white africans the land was stolen by your grandparents from black people when they arrived here so dnt ever try to mislead us your fore fathers had done the damage to us already

      Revelgen - 2012-06-28 17:11

      Zakes, I suggest you check the facts (substantiated by the ANC) that 90% of the farms already handed over to Black farmers have FAILED. I don't rejoice at this, but it is the truth. So now, when you have grabbed 'your' land (actually it originally belonged to the Khoi-san), what do YOU propose to do with it? Please let us know. A few spinach and cabbage plants around a mud hut isn't going to feed SA. What you propose (apparently seriously) will result in mass starvation in SA.

  • richard.zanner - 2012-06-28 15:27

    Aghh please. SO they have a meeting now suddenly they are stronger and no longer fighting over the cookie. I trust that the ANC will one day say something that is actually true. They fought for the cake and now they got the cake. Now they are fighting amongst themselves to get the biggest part of the cake. Sadly, the ones who need a bit of cake carry on voting them in but will never see any of the cake. Well that having been said, in not to far a distant future there will be no cake to fight over. Somehow reminds me of a kiddies party.

      Bardy - 2012-06-28 15:37

      They are forever struggling. When they have the so called "land" the whites have, then what? What are they going to struggle about then?

    The reason why government has failed, is because they have been listening to you far too long now. You are their saboteur, you have derailed the economy, you are responsible for the high unemployment and now you are trying get your own way again by chasing investors away. I think you should go back and just do one job, you obviously, dont have a clue with the current one. Stick in zuma's cabinet, you and angie can hide in the cupboard together. Anc got no balls, cant tell the unions etc to take a hike, too scared of losing a few votes, ag shame hey.

  • Phillip - 2012-06-28 16:03

    "We do hold policy conferences to plug gaps, but mainly to glug Jacks (at the taxpayer's expense, of course)". Yes, Mr Inzamoney - the ANC and its alliance will emerge much stronger, especially when Mr Vavi has dissed the 'second transition' as same old, same old meaningless propaganda, and nine out of thirteen provinces have declared it to be yet another piece of Zuma twaddle. Yep, it all points to a much stronger alliance, clearly! (or maybe your alliance with uncle Jack is a getting a little too strong...)

    They can nationalise anything they can even make South Africa a one party state, but SAs problems will remain as long as they are in charge. The ruling party is corrupt uninspired and self serving, most of its citizen are diseased, lazy and spend way to much money on liquor and braggadoccio. Africa should realise the years of empires and racial nationalism is over globalisation, is the law in which the world abides. And any thing else is like taking a sand Strom

      cecilia.vanderwesthuizen.5 - 2012-06-28 16:34

      Some people said that they will rather have the mines closed than to lose it all. So just think of all the people that will be without jobs because of the ANC's stupidity. If i had a mine i would do the same thing. Other investors heard of this and they do not like it and so they are going to take their money out of the mining system.. Wich means closing the mines. Way to go ANC!

Machines have to be run correctly by computers wich are run by clever people. If it is not done correctly chemicals will mix.. Etc. This is not just a story but the truth and straight facts.

      sipho.sithole.94 - 2012-06-28 18:08

      Cecelia I'm not sure their can do that because our government leaders their not capable,our government must fight against corruption,cronism,fraudulent,crime etc due to lack of leadership this why we suffering much poverty,hunger etc because of greed leaders of ruling party we over population this country due to ruling party and our you in South africa their don't want to go to school its disgrace

      cecilia.vanderwesthuizen.5 - 2012-06-28 19:03

      Sipho i so agree with you! I wish many more people think like you do! Our president are living in hollywood style on the taxpayers money... And remember that black people that have jobs pays tax too! He is misusing his own people too! And most of them are starving of hunger.. They have jobs but a piece of it are going for tax so they can not provide for their families.. And here is a new story.. The ANC wants more tax! Who is going to pay? The hard workers of south africa.. The money they worked so hard for will be lessended by the ANC

    Interesting statement about Sasol and Mittal! Everything the whites built up the ANC/SACP/Cosatu alliance have destroyed or sold off, now they want to steal land from farmers, mines from mining companies and banks! Re- nationalize what was the nation's in the first instance! Idiotic I might say? When will the blacks realize that they cannot steal anything from whites? What we have on earth is but a drop of our capital. ANC's can steal it and still be exactly what they are and have been for centuries! They have still not seen the 'Way in the Wilderness' although it has been preached to them for nearly 4 centuries... Sad isn't it?
