Former president Thabo Mbeki urges ANC rethink on EWC – MPIYAKHE DHLAMINI

It is a well-known fact that the ANC sees itself not primarily as a ruling party but rather as a movement. This means that it needs to justify its continued existence in terms of the attainment of the objectives given at the organisation’s founding. The need to do this is what informs former President Thabo Mbeki’s critique of the expropriation without compensation policy (EWC) through the “leak” of his foundation’s memo.

According to Mbeki, the constitution of the Native Congress said the following about what the objectives of the ANC were to be:

  • to promote unity and mutual cooperation between the Government and the Abantu Races of South Africa;
  • to promote the educational, social, economic and political elevation of the native people in South Africa;
  • to bring about better understanding between the white and black inhabitants of South Africa; and,
  • to safeguard the interests of the native inhabitants throughout South Africa by seeking and obtaining redress for any of their just grievances.
