Former African National Congress (ANC) treasure-general, Matthews Phosa, says it is time for government to shape the country's future decisively and stop blaming the past.
 
Speaking at the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation conference in Johannesburg, Phosa pointed out that, "We are... a government, and placing the blame on the past, apartheid, race, and other external factors does not wash anymore…”
 
He argued that if the ANC wants to avoid being consigned to the dustbin of history, it must be demonstrably more decisive and more transparent.
 

State Failed to Support Apartheid Victims

The brother of Anton Fransch, killed by security police, will always remember the young Umkhonto we Sizwe member as a “determined fighter for human rights”, but says the government has failed to support the families of apartheid victims.

Speaking to the Cape Times at his Bonteheuwel home, Mark Fransch said he felt ‘deeply hurt’ by the outcome of the South Africa Apartheid Lawsuit which was dismissed by a United States appeal court after a 10 year battle.

Celebrating Helen Suzman: A Bright Star in a Dark Chamber

It is not for me to comment on the recent spat between the Democratic Alliance (DA) and the African National Congress (ANC) regarding the use of the photograph of Nelson Mandela and Helen Suzman. The Foundation holds no copyright over this photograph. However, as the director of the foundation that bears her name, I wish to respond to aspects of the recent, ill-judged statements by the ANC’s parliamentary spokesperson, Moloto Mothapo, that were published by the Mail & Guardian on 26 April to 2 May 2013.

NEHAWU spokesperson, Sizwe Pamla, points out that, "What he forgot to mention was that the current government has spent the last couple of years trying to reverse some of the disastrous policy positions that he championed as the Minister of Finance."
 

ANC Slams NGOs for ‘Apartheid Denialism’

The African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal has dismissed claims by former president, FW De Klerk, that the party is responsible for the widening inequality gap in the country.

The party’s provincial secretary, Sihle Zikalala, points out that, "The ANC...views De Klerk's comments as nothing more than a red herring to deflect attention from the shocking figures which were released by Stats SA [Statistics South Africa] as part of Census 2011 and which showed that white South Africans are still way better off economically than their fellow black compatriots."

De Klerk Clarifies ‘Separate Development’ View

Former president and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, FW de Klerk, says he has long abandoned the view that separate development is the answer to South Africa’s challenges.

In an apparent attempt to calm the storm begun by his recent controversial remarks on former apartheid homelands, the former president says that his comments were ‘misunderstood and misinterpreted’ because they were a reflection of a view he held in the ’60s and ’70s, when he believed SA’s problems could be justly resolved by recognising the right of all citizens.
