I was amongst thousands of Activists, Pastors and ANC supporters who were at Jim Summers Hall where the President of the ANC was addressing. He was introduced by comrade John Block, and in his introductory remarks he made reference to the Pastors and Priests that graced the event, saying"we are happy that we have you, as religious leaders in our midst.
The Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) of the ANC convened its first PEC meeting for the year on 14 March 2014 in Kimberley.
The ANC in the Northern Cape has stepped up its election campaign by deploying senior leaders to the province to interact directly with communities and to do door to door visit to the communities throughout the province.
The Lekgotla is convened annually in order to take stock of the progress we have made thus far, and to plan for the year ahead. This Lekgotla is taking place during a period when we are preparing for the general elections and to usher in a new provincial government administration.
The Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) was elected in the 6th Provincial Conference in 2008, popularly known as the Moshaweng Conference. That was the most chaotic, violent and divisive ANC conference in the post 1990 political era. The elected PEC was then saddled with the responsibility of rebuilding the organisation and to ensure that there is a semblance of unity in the province. Building unity after such a catastrophic epic event was a daunting task but a task worth undertaking as unity is the heart of the ANC, the bedrock upon which the organisation was founded in 1912.
The measurement of any collective is not when the executive tasks in the normal course of organisational work, but when leadership is confronted with the execution of mandates in trajectories which requires high political morals and discipline.
