Ace Magashule, the ANC's Secretary-General called on South Africans to remember what the ruling party has done for them over the years. From voting for the first time to the freedom to live where they want - Magashule listed many things.
The ANC is celebrating its 107th birthday in KZN, and its Secretary-General, Ace Magashule, called on South Africa to remember what it has done in its existence.
Magashule addressed the crowd at the Moses Mabidha stadium and listed the things that he feels the ANC are to thank for.
News24 reported that Magashule wants black South Africans to keep in mind what the ruling party did for them.
We as the top six, NEC and PECs (provincial executive committees) are united. We are ANC and we have one ANC. This ANC was led by president Mandela after president OR Tambo.
It was led by comrade Thabo Mbeki, after Thabo Mbeki it was led by comrade Zuma. After comrade Zuma it is led by comrade Ramaphosa. So the president of the ANC, there is no doubt, there is only one president, Cyril Ramaphosa.
Magashule went on to say that people treat the ANC badly and say the party did nothing for them.
They will say the ANC has done nothing for you. The ANC has made it possible for black South Africans to live wherever they want to. The ANC has made it possible for the children of blacks and whites to attend the same schools; they get the same quality of education. The ANC has made it possible for those without water, to have water.
But people say that the ANC has done nothing. The ANC made it possible for black people to vote for the first time after more than 300 years. Black people voted in 1994 and a black person became president. White people and black people now have the same identity document. People forget too easily and say the ANC has achieved nothing. How? How can they forget?
Briefly.co.za gathered that Magashule also addressed the land issue in his speech.
How can you forget that they took our land? Mawubuye umhlaba wethu (our land must come back). Mawubuye. Let the land come back.
