Tambo’s legacy key for SA
ON October 27, South Africans will celebrate the life of the long-serving ANC president, Oliver Tambo.
A dedicated leader who built the ANC under difficult circumstance in exile, OR’s legacy is key for the future. Especially now as the country is desperate for leaders of his calibre to set the ruling party right.
On #FeesMustFall, OR would surely say poor students deserve free quality education, but wither away the third force that is recklessly bent on destruction. He would opt for negotiations with students as future leaders of this country.
My plea to all ANC component structures is to go back to basics. When we see the ANC Youth League on a mission to boot out the Minister of Finance Pravin Gordhan, beware the wedge driver with a poisonous tongue.
I believe ANC NEC members should commit themselves to making a public apology to voters for every reason that caused the loss of three municipalities.
Further, the ANC has historically undertaken the responsibility of uniting South Africans across the lines of colour, race and creed. That task has devolved to each of our members. It is only as a united force that we can move forward.
I urge ANC members as we celebrate Tambo’s life, to learn from him and work towards his wish for a democratic South Africa. — Thabang Maseko, Mdantsane
