COSATU Western Cape wishes the ANC a successful 9th  Provincial Conference

The Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) in the Western Cape wishes the African National Congress (ANC) a successful Provincial Conference scheduled for this coming weekend, commencing on Friday 23 June 2023 until Sunday, 25 June 2023. This conference presents the ANC with another high-yielding opportunity to reflect, introspect, and also rekindle its dedication to continue serving the residents of the Western Cape.

The 9th ANC Western Cape Provincial Conference will be convened under the theme “Rebuilding and Renewing a Peoples’ Movement in the Western Cape: Towards a Better Life for All”.

This conference is taking place at a time when the working class and the people of the Western Cape are confronted by difficult socio-economic challenges.

We want a pro-working-class ANC that does not waiver when it comes to defending workers’ rights and one that is committed to eliminating the legacy of apartheid colonialism. 

This calls for an assertive and people-centred approach leadership that will ensure that those deployed in government commit to a shared vision and goals for the organization. Commitment, honesty, integrity, and humility are critical in building an effective organization. 

Our hope for this Provincial Conference is that it should represent a turning point in the renewal and rebuilding of the ANC and in tackling and reversing the negative tendencies that have eroded the political integrity and moral standing of the ANC among communities. This meeting should reaffirm the core values and principles of the ANC such as unity, selflessness, sacrifice, collective leadership, humility, honesty, discipline, hard-work, internal debates, constructive criticism, and self-criticism.

We need to see an inclusive, renewed, united and rejuvenated ANC emerge from this conference.

COSATU wishes the ANC Western Cape Conference delegates successful and productive deliberations.
