The ANC in the Northern Cape Province would like to congratulate the Sol Plaatje Municipality on their initiative in ensuring that sustainable delivery and maintenance in respect of roads and storm water services to all residents of Kimberley is happening.
The ANC in the Northern Cape is quiet happy with the response of the general public during the past voter registrations week-end. Our structures are ready for the 2014 general elections, as tribute to TATA Madiba we are optimistic of an overwhelming victory.
Our engagements with the IEC office in Warrenton indicated that, they were on strike and until their superiors intervened amicably they will not report for duty, furthermore the matter was reported to the Municipal Electoral Officer (MEO) and escalated to the IEC Provincial office via the ANC Regional Secretary`s office.
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.
