Key Events in the ANC
A bold budget under difficult conditions
The ANC welcomes the first budget of the fifth democratic administration. The budget strikes a chord with the priorities set out in the ANC's 2014 elections manifesto.

In celebration of the lives of Malume Kotane and Uncle JB Marks
The occasion to celebrate the lives of the South African liberation struggle stalwarts, Moses Kotane and John Beaver (J.B.) Marks, offers us an opportunity to reflect on the common histories shared by the peoples of Russia and South Africa.

The African National Congress (ANC) as a revolutionary national liberation movement differs from its political counterparts, or strategic opponents, in the South African body politic not just by the content of its elections manifestos. It is also distinguished by its set of values, political culture and organisational discipline. These three sets of qualities, can be collectively described as the ANC`s value system. The ANCís values are loyalty, integrity, selflessness, humility and honesty. Nelson Mandela was a living embodiment of the ANC`s value system.
