Johannesburg - The ANC would exist as long as there is life on earth, ANC national executive committee member Pule Mabe said on Sunday.
“As long as there is life, there will be the African National Congress. It is part of our DNA,” he said.
“This is the ANC you were fighting for. This ANC will continue to remain relevant when it responds to the people's needs.”
Mabe, who also serves as ANC Youth League treasurer general, was speaking at an ANC Havana City ward 96 branch meeting, north of Johannesburg.
He said ANC members should not compromise the integrity of the party.
“The ANC is the future. If you taint the ANC today, you are compromising the future. Many others have died for this ANC. It is not ours, it belongs to the people.”
He explained to members the policy resolutions taken by the party at its national conference in Mangaung in December.
