The ANC’s Promises: A 30-Year Legacy Of Unfulfilled Commitments

During the ANC's post-manifesto briefing, Mmamoloko Kubayi, the chair of the party's sub-committee on economic transformation, acknowledged the severity of the crisis. However, the ANC's track record raises doubts about its ability to deliver on its promises.

South Africa’s unemployment crisis has reached alarming proportions, with 7.9 million people currently without jobs, according to Statistics South Africa’s latest Quarterly Labour Force Survey. The official unemployment rate hit 32.1% in December 2023, highlighting the urgent need for effective solutions.

During the ANC’s post-manifesto briefing, Mmamoloko Kubayi, the chair of the party’s sub-committee on economic transformation, acknowledged the severity of the crisis. However, the ANC’s track record raises doubts about its ability to deliver on its promises.

The ANC points to initiatives such as the teacher assistance program, which initially aimed to create 500 jobs but expanded to 1 million. While this is commendable, it is important to question why such initiatives were not implemented earlier, considering the party’s lengthy tenure in power.

It is disheartening that the ANC continues to make grand promises while failing to address the root causes of unemployment. South Africans have grown weary of empty rhetoric and are yearning for tangible results.

The ANC’s inability to effectively tackle unemployment over the past three decades raises valid concerns about its commitment to the welfare of the nation. The party’s promises, no matter how well-intentioned, ring hollow in the face of its long-standing governance.

As citizens, we must hold the ANC accountable for its past failures and demand concrete actions rather than empty words. The time for promises has long passed; it is now time for the ANC to deliver on its commitments and prove its dedication to the people it serves.
