UNREVISED HANSARD JOINT SITTING TUESDAY, 25 JUNE 2019 Page: 415 Let me hasten to remind the House about the blood that runs in the veins of the ANC. The ANC is not an Africanist movement, the ANC is not a socialist movement, it is not a capitalist movement and it is not a party for one sex over the other or one race dominating the other. We recognise the circumstances of colonialism and the uniqueness or specialty of it in the context of South Africa. We recognise that South Africa is a class-based society with a deep racial segregationist and oppressive past. No party should impose its agenda on the ANC.

We have always owned up to our mistakes, we never hide them, we stumble and rise up, and right now we are busy rising up for the sake of our people and we are saying we still have dreams, dreams of a nation that is a beacon of hope and prosperity.

The answer is a full yes. Mr President, your clarity and visionary address has offered us a clear canvass to paint and draw-out executable and realistic plans. Deputy Chairperson, the ANC’s vision document, the Freedom Charter is a document of our dreams. We are committing never to rest until the core of the dreams are realised. It is very curious when we see this document being abused and misused in this House by groups that freelance on their ideological grounding. They sometimes wake up being Sankarists, the next day they are Sobukweist, the next they are Charterist and maybe Marxist too and they may just cut the cake of power with conservative liberals in the halls of Tshwane and Johannesburg.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
