Indeed, their election into the highest structure of the party attest their leadership qualities and resolute dedication to the working-class struggle for socialism. As NEHAWU, we are proud of the recognition bestowed upon our President and General Secretary by members of the SACP.
As NEHAWU, we strong believe that their election into the Central Committee will contribute in reorganising and rejuvenating the SACP for a successful execution of the socialist revolution. We reiterate once again that the imperative task of the moment for the party is that of creating a socialist movement of workers and the poor.
Equally, we also want to congratulate all the trade unionist that have been elected into the Central Committee. Indeed, this demonstrates the inextricably linked relationship between the trade union movement and the South African Communist Party. We look forward to their contributions in rebuilding the Party’s trade union commission in order to build a strong union movement in the country.
Lastly, we congratulate the SACP for convening a resounding successful 15th National Congress held under the theme “Together, Let us Build a Powerful, Socialist Movement of the Workers and Poor”.
