Nation is way ahead of the ANC

"The ANC'S problem is that it's endemically difficult for it to change because it operates in a Soviet-style, pre-1994, exile liberation politics mode," the Gender Equity Unit founder said. File photo

The ANC practises the politics of the Soviet era, using "dirty tricks, spying tactics and state institutions to fight its enemies", says human rights activist Rhoda Kadalie.

The government had reversed the potential of the country through corruption and self-serving politics, Kadalie told a seminar hosted by the Stellenbosch University Business School in Cape Town yesterday.

"The ANC'S problem is that it's endemically difficult for it to change because it operates in a Soviet-style, pre-1994, exile liberation politics mode," the Gender Equity Unit founder said.

"That [prevents] the ANC from getting with the programme, dealing with a global economy and a nation that, partly, has developed way beyond the ANC and its macroeconomic policies."

Professor Piet Naude said at the seminar that education should be declared an essential service. "We need to professionalise teaching and restrict union power. We also need a two-stream system from Grade 8 into a differentiated - vocational, technical and agricultural - secondary school system (related to) aptitude and economic needs," he said.
