Susan Booysen Comments on the ANC’s 101st Anniversary

The African National Congress and the Regeneration of Political PowerAhead of the ANC’s 101st anniversary celebrations, that were held this past weekend, Rochelle de Kock of The Times spoke to Susan Booysen, author of The African National Congress and the Regeneration of Political Power, who rightly predicted that there would be no “dramatic announcements and initiatives” as she feels the ANC is “trying to show that Zuma is the ultimate leader and that all the policies are working”.

ANC president Jacob Zuma’s address to mark the party’s 101st anniversary at the weekend is expected to be a regurgitation of his speeches over the past year with no ground-breaking announcements, political analysts say.

The ANC’s 100th birthday, the party’s achievements, social inequalities, education and factionalism within the party will feature prominently. He is likely to talk about the national development plan, developed during his first term as president of the country.
