By Anthony Butler

The African nationwide Congress (ANC) is Africa’s most famed liberation flow. It has lately celebrated its centenary, a milestone that has brought on partisans to aspect a century of remarkable success within the fight opposed to colonialism and racial discrimination. Critics paint a much less flattering portrait of the ancient ANC as a communist puppet, a moribund dinosaur, or an elitist political parasite. For such skeptics, the ANC — now in executive for 2 decades — has betrayed South Africans instead of releasing them.

South Africans undergo deep inequality and unemployment, violent neighborhood protests, murders of overseas citizens, significant coverage mistakes, an AIDS trouble, and deepening corruption. contained in the ANC there are episodes of open uprising opposed to the management, conflicts over the nature of a postliberation circulation, and debilitating battles for succession to the movement’s presidency. The ANC is however prone to stay the occasion of presidency for the foreseeable future.

This ebook explores how ANC intellectuals and leaders interpret the historic venture in their stream. It investigates 3 interlocked principles: a perception of energy, a accountability for selling team spirit, and a dedication to human liberation. It explores how those notions have formed South African politics long ago, and the way they are going to tell ANC leaders’ responses to the demanding situations of the future.
