The ANC is a national liberation movement. It was formed in 1912 to unite the African people and spearhead the struggle for fundamental political, social and economic change.
The ANC's key objective is the creation of a united, non-racial, non-sexist and democratic society.
This means the liberation of Africans in particular and black people in general from political and economic bondage. It means uplifting the quality of life of all South Africans, especially the poor.
The ANC is in an alliance with the South African Communist Party (SACP) and the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU). Each Alliance partner is an independent organisation with its own constitution, membership and programmes. The Alliance is founded on a common commitment to the objectives of the National Democratic Revolution, and the need to unite the largest possible cross-section of South Africans behind these objectives.

The National Office Bearers of the ANC led by Comrade President Jacob Zuma visited Isithwalandwe/Seaparankoe Comrade Nelson Mandela at his home in Houghton Johannesburg today. They found President Mandela in good shape and in good spirits.
After receiving a briefing from the medical team, the National Officials are satisfied that President Mandela is in good health and is receiving the very best medical care. President Mandela is keenly aware of the goodwill that has been outpouring from the peoples of the globe as befitting his status as our icon. The African National Congress thanks all South Africans and the international community for keeping President Mandela in their thoughts and prayers.
