TimesLIVE reports that the ANC is laying the blame for South Africa's current state at the door of apartheid.

Mathole Motshekga, ANC national executive committee member, said during an election manifesto on moral regeneration and social cohesion that the ANC knows that the apartheid legacy plays part in SA's social problems.

We recognise that the deepening moral degeneration and social ills is part of the apartheid legacy and that is why, apart from establishing the moral regeneration movement, the president has convened the national inter-faith gathering to launch a social movement for renewal to ensure that this matter is addressed at the highest possible level.
