100 Years of ANC Leadership

National Librarian Prof.  Rocky Ralebipi-Simela, ANC Treasurer-General Dr Zweli Mkhize, and editor Darryl Swanepoel

 National Librarian Prof.  Rocky Ralebipi-Simela, ANC Treasurer-General Dr Zweli Mkhize, and editor Darryl Swanepoel


Former National Party members Renier Schoeman and Darryl Swanepoel were the co-editors of the book the Centenary Publication: ‘Unity in Diversity- 100 years of ANC leadership’
The irony of the above statement is a profound characterisation of the extent to which reconciliation in South Africa has been taken.
Speaking at the donation of 300 books to the National Library of South Africa (NLSA) for distribution to libraries around South Africa, Zweli Mkhize, Treasurer General of the African National Congress (ANC) reminded the audience how close South Africans had come to an all-out civil war of racial hatred and revenge.
He praised the role of the leadership of the ANC for their vision of building an inclusive South African identity based on the history of the ideals of freedom, equality and justice.
Mkhize said the book is a record of the proud traditions of the ANC which all South Africans should know about as a process of correcting the distorted history and perceptions of South Africa.
Swanepoel, who is the Convenor of the Progressive Business Forum (PBF) of the ANC, said the book was compiled from the extensive and well preserved archive of the rich history of the liberation movement.
“As a black person growing up in South Africa I never had access to a library,” said National Librarian Prof.  Rocky Ralebipi-Simela in her remarks. Today there are around 1500 public libraries in South Africa and the Government is recognizing the multi-dimensional value of the library and it is committed to substantially increase the number of libraries, thereby enhancing access to information.
This Diplomatic Society publication, which has been active in the international relations arena since 1997, is also gaining recognition as an archive of South Africa’s Diplomatic relations.  The publication is a reflection of the great strides South Africa has taken at home as well as in the international arena. Copies of this publication since its inception can be found at this state of the art facility (NLSA) in Pretoria.
