The ANC’s top brass is considering bringing services to the people in the way the World Cup was delivered.
ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu today said President Jacob Zuma had discussed the successful hosting of the World Cup at the party’s national executive committee meeting in Johannesburg.
The strategy was to use the knowledge acquired from the sporting event to deliver services to the people, Mthembu told journalists. “To do things better, to do things smarter ... in terms of service delivery.”
The president also discussed the threat of xenophobic violence.
Mthembu said the ANC would combat xenophobia using its own structures at branch level.
The NEC meeting was the final gathering of the party leadership before its key national general council to be held in September.
Mthembu said the NEC would tomorrow, when the meeting continued, deal with discussion documents in preparation for the national general council.
Among these were the ANCYL’s policy proposal on nationalising the country’s mines.
