Key Events in the ANC
Water Security for All
Over the last few weeks, there has been much speculation and debate on the water security of our country and the management of our available water resources. This is the result of the adverse drought conditions that affect large parts of our country currently, mainly, the provinces of Kwazulu-Natal, North-West, Free State, Mpumalanga and Limpopo.
Oceans Economy steaming ahead thanks to Operation Phakisa
The implementation of South Africa's Ocean Economy strategy is well on track, thanks to Operation Phakisa launched by President Jacob Zuma in 2014. Contrary to a number of recently carried media reports questioning our progress, the South African government, led by the African National Congress (ANC) continues to register a number of notable successes in the four selected areas: namely Marine Transport and Manufacturing, Offshore Oil and Gas, Aquaculture and Marine Protection Services and Ocean Governance.
State Regulation of Religion an Anathema of ANC Policy
As a liberation movement and the governing party of South Africa, the ANC has consistently affirmed the importance of religion in public life. From its first meeting in 1912, the ANC has recognized and appreciated the need for an independent voice from the Church. Such voice has always been intended to ensure the promotion of the spirituality of the struggle of the people and to build and entrench revolutionary morality.
We are Africans and we are proud of our African identity
We need to do more to promote healing and tolerance amongst all our people. Linked to this, is the need to also continue efforts to fight racism which also continues to be a challenge in our country. Our nation building and healing efforts require more enthusiasm and the involvement of every sector of society, writes Jacob Zuma.
