Are citizens of South Africa losing hope and confidence in ANC?


The African National Congress also known as ANC is an organization that was initially founded as South African Native National Congress (SANNC) in January 1912. Its aim was to bring all Africans together as one to defend their rights and freedom.

The organization was founded by Josiah Gumede, John Dube, Saul Msane, Sol Plaatjie and Pixley la Isaka Seme. They founded the organization along with chiefs, church organizations, people's representatives and other prominent individuals. The organization was renamed from South African Native National Congress (SANNC) to African National Congress (ANC) in 1923.


The African National Congress (ANC) is also respected for its opposition to Apartheid, it found its role model in the initial movement by the Indian political parties. They realised that they would need a leader like Gandhi, which happened to be the late President Nelson Rolihlala Mandela.

So now the people of South Africa have always had that hope that ANC will deliver and better their lives eversince it played a huge role in ending Apartheid in South Africa. South Africans always had this hope up until now, it seems like many citizens are starting to lose hope and confidence in our current president, President Cyril Ramaphosa.

President Cyril Ramaphosa was elected as President of South Africa in February 2018. When President Cyril Ramaphosa was elected as President of South Africa, South Africans were so happy that finally former President Zuma was out of the seat because of corruption, and had hope that President Cyril Ramaphosa would make some real changes to the country.

Once again the citizens of South Africa are disappointed in their Leader for he hasn't delivered on his promises. People around social media are making noise on how it's been 27 years yet the lives of black South Africans haven't changed, unemployment is still high and still no free education
