54th National Conference Report and Resolutions

The 54th National Conference was convened under the theme of “Remember Tambo: Towards Unity, Renewal and Radical Socio-economic Transformation” and presented cadres of our movement with a concrete opportunity for introspection, self-criticism and renewal.

The ANC can unequivocally and proudly say that we emerged from this conference invigorated and renewed to continue serving the people of South Africa.

We took fundamental resolutions aimed at radically transforming the lives of the people for the better and our tasks now are to transform these resolutions into programmes that will make meaningful and lasting difference to peoples’ existence.

The ANC is committed to addressing the historical injustice of land dispossessions and we shall pursue land expropriation without compensation as a matter of policy. We shall give effect to this resolution in a manner that strengthens the agricultural sector, improves economic growth and meaningfully addresses inequality and unemployment.

Conference reaffirmed the ANC’s commitment to nation-building and directed all ANC structures to develop specific programmmes to build non-racialism and non-sexism. It further directed that every ANC cadre must become activists in their communities and drive programmes against the abuse of drugs and alcohol, gender based violence and other social ills.

Fundamentally, Conference directed every ANC member to work tirelessly for the renewal of our organisation and to build unity across all structures. A united ANC is a prerequisite for leading the struggle for a united, non-racial, non-sexist, democratic and prosperous South Africa.

We invite you to read this report of the 54th National Conference and to discuss the resolutions contained herein thoroughly.

– ANC Secretary General Ace Magashule
