Key Events in the ANC
Cadres must be equipped to tell the story of our country
This decade of the cadre should prepare a cadre of a governing party, whose responsibility includes effective and efficient governance in all the three spheres of government. The ANC must do away with the graduated approach wherein local government is regarded as the sphere for everyone who has not been deployed to the other two spheres. We must be prepared to redeploy a cabinet minister as a mayor of a strategic municipality.
Preserve our heritage. Protect our boys
We must teach the initiates never to be initiated without the permission and involvement of their families and traditional leaders.

Xenophobia or mistaken identity?
Media reports, which significantly influence public opinion, had historically characterized these events as xenophobic, so this was equally treated as yet another shameful act of xenophobia. However we are convinced that this xenophobia narrative, dismally fails to comprehensively capture the real story. We know it is easy in this country for our media to fail to capture the real story; especially it hunts like `a pack of wild dogs`. This means when they gather information and interpret a social phenomenon they are forever limited to a narrow pack outlook of a phenomenon - tunnel vision.

From its inception, the ANC has always had clear strategies and tactics that it employed in its pursuit of the struggle against colonisation of a special type, which was organised as apartheid.
