ANC Secretary General Gwede Mantashe briefs the media on the party's state of readiness for the policy conference (Mpho Raborife, News24)

The ANC Policy Conference got off to an interesting start with the release of the diagnostic report which paints the picture of a party that is yet to fully comprehend what it means to lead a modern democratic society, or a market society for that matter.

The diagnostic report shows that the ANC is aware it is rapidly losing the moral grounding as a party that was once trusted to change the lives of the majority of the people for the better, to a party that is in Wonderland and has lost a sense of right or wrong.

The document acknowledges that some of the party members who have been deployed to government have been compromised as they are more committed to the pursuit of self-interests than implementing the party mandate. It openly mentions the Gupta family’s relationship with some members of the party, and how that impacts upon the stature and reputation of the ANC.
