Chief Whip

Address by the Chief Whip at the Caucus Lekgotla held at Khaya IBhubesi on the 20 - 22 February 2013

Cllr DE TshabalalaFellow compatriots we meet just after a month the ANC having concluded its National Conference business which was held at Mangaung to get the reports both organizational and political speaking about the road traversed for the past five years both organizationally and in government as to are we still in line with the goals and targets we had set ourselves in 2008 at a conference which held in Limpopo.

Many thought this conference will be a catastrophic conference to the life of the ANC noting the abnormalities we witnessed in Limpopo during the 52 Conference. Yes comrades many thought this conference will give birth to another opposition party formed by the ANC dissidents but this was never the case as it became a watershed and an incident free conference which saw the movement taking very radical resolutions which must see the light of day in the coming five years.

Cllr DE TshabalalaReceive my warm revolutionary greetings in the cold weather as we are greeted by the winter season but surely we are braced to face it as we soldier on in an endeavor to take caucus to the people to enhance oversight on service delivery and government accountatability.
