Chairperson of the ANC’s Strategy and Tactics Commission, Nathi Mthethwa has briefed the media on Wednesday on decisions around a number of issues following deliberations on the policy.

He said while there was general endorsement of the draft document, there was some emphasis on continental and regional dynamics – especially for example, issues around Zimbabwe.

Mthethwa said there was also fair discussion on the concept of monopoly capital and that while there is still much work to be done, there were are strong views that there must be concrete ideas on the formulation of this concept. He said the ANC should focus on the content, and clarify that whatever ideas might be linked, the uncompetitive practices of monopoly capital must be shunned. He said however the organisation cannot dismiss the case that in South Africa, the form it takes is white.
