Key Events in the ANC
Mandela lives on: His vision for a better Africa and a better world will continue to resonate in current and future generations
It was on a hot Lagos afternoon on the 25th of January 1962, probably very much a day like this one, that a tall gentleman bearing an Ethiopian passport cleared customs at Lagos Airport. It was the first visit to Nigeria by Mr. David Motsamai, the third country on what would be a 21 country blitz in support of his cause: the armed struggle in South Africa.
Teaching and learning is getting more and more tech-savvy
The new generation of learners is information hungry. The 'Z' or 'I' or "Facebook generation" is tech-savvy. They are cyber citizens of the world. Learning and teaching will never be the same again. With the explosion of new technologies and a greater understanding of how leaners learn, e-learning and the digitisation of education has come a long way in establishing itself as one of the most popular ways of learning in today's technology-savvy world.
The Multilateral Trading System and South Africa's developmental ambitions
The multilateral trading system was developed through a series of trade negotiations, or rounds, held under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). The first rounds dealt mainly with tariff reductions but later negotiations included other areas such as anti-dumping and non-tariff measures. The Uruguay Round, undertaken in 1986-94 - led to the WTOís creation.
Madiba as an embodiment of the ANCís value system
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.
