Freedom of Speech is a Human Right

Human rights are a birthright and inherent to every single one of us. The post World War 2 period has preoccupied itself with the issue of human rights, recognising the atrocities that had pertained then. We can appreciate, therefore, why even the Vienna Declaration impressed upon the United Nations to uphold human rights as an essential part of democracy and development; and to ensure that it makes concerted effort to ensure they prevail.

No Emancipation for Women without Economic Transformation

Next month, the African National Congress Women's League (ANCWL) will hold its National Conference. It comes in the 21st year of South Africa's democracy: and at a time when the ruling African National Congress (ANC) embarks upon the next phase of our revolution - paving the way for radical socio-economic transformation. It is self-evident that that true emancipation of a people cannot happen unless the economic circumstances of that people are changed.

Remembering Collins

Comrade Collins Ohm Chabane was born on the 15th April 1960 at the Xikundu Village, Limpopo Province. Chabane was the seventh of the 11 children of Elisabeth and Etienne Chabane. He and together with his two protectors, Sergeant Lesiba Sekele and Sergeant Lawrence Lentsoane, met their untimely death in a car accident on the 15th March 2015. Deputy President of the ANC, Comrade Cyril Ramaphosa, has described Comrade Collins as a freedom fighter, a musician, a leader and a servant of the people who embodied in so many ways the values on which we seek to build our nation. Below Comrade Collins is fondly remembered. Famba Kahle Mun'wanati.

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.
