What is vaccination?

Vaccination is a simple, safe, and effective way to protect people against harmful diseases, before they come into contact with them. It uses your body’s natural defences to build resistance to specific infections and makes your immune system stronger.

Address by ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa at Local Government Candidates’ Roll Call and affirmation of pledge

19 October 2021

Candidates of the African National Congress for the local government elections, Friends and Comrades, South Africans,

This evening, throughout the length and breadth of our country, nearly 10,000 ANC local government candidates have made a solemn pledge to the people of South Africa.

The candidates have made this pledge as part of the ANC’s commitment to do better and be better, a pledge to correct what has gone wrong and fix our mistakes.

As part of our renewal and our rebuilding, we have chosen candidates who have the support and confidence of the communities they are expected to serve.

We have sought to involve ordinary community members in our candidate selection process, so that our candidates understand that their first responsibility is to the people they represent.

If your life is in danger or you know of someone who is in danger, please contact our help line and we will assist you immediately.

ANC Membership System

As a democratic organisation, ANC members are expected to play a critical role as agents of change in their communities, in society and in the ANC structures at all levels.

"We are each required to walk our own road and then stop, assess what we have learnt, and share it with others. It is only in this way that the next generation can learn from those who have walked before them. We can do no more than tell our story. Then it is up to them to make of it what they will.
