'Robust' debates at policy conference

2012-06-27 19:31

Johannesburg - Debates were continuing in "robust" fashion on Wednesday afternoon at the ruling ANC's policy conference in Midrand, party head of policy Jeff Radebe said.

"We will only know by tomorrow [Thursday] the views of branches when commissions report."

Radebe said delegates had been debating a document on organisational renewal and another on the so-called second transition, intended to correct economic imbalances.

"The debates are robust, as well as the input," he said.

The ANC is holding a four-day policy conference ahead of its elective conference in Mangaung in December.

Resolutions from the policy talks would be considered in Mangaung for adoption.

Delegates were participating in 11 commissions.

    now let us kindly share this knowledge of carrying this country without calling each other morons, I've got too much respect for anyone in this country, but if you call me and my father morons you're scratching a healing wound open and my friend now I'm more matured and better trained than before so don't provoke a wounded lion this time you might not go away with a plea of amnesty from the TRC, if you don't want to vote or participate in our pathetic politics keep quiet.

    It is really heartbreaking that the Government is riding the apartheid to death for their own failures. Policy reviews will not change anything until the leaders of this wonderful nation starts leading with their hearts and listening to the pulses of their constituents, us. Days are past of calling yourself black, white, colored as my God had made me a human being. I used to be a staunch a ANC supporter and it is my constitutional right, no my God given right to change affiliation as to whichever partys' working towards the vision of not being tolerant of our difference but accept and embrace them. I love my country and I see it bleeding. If you still see South Africa, my land, as black and white then I pity you for then you shall never go forward in that small fishbowl mentality of yours but just in a spiral of never ending self conflicting hate. Yes apartheid was there but I chose to let it go. Take the power away from them through positive engagement. I pray for our all our leaders and parties to be blessed with wisdom to make our country what it is supposed to be, The Best. Mayibuye iAfrika!
