SaftuANA reports that the SA Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu) on Thursday said the just-ended African National Congress (ANC) policy conference “failed abysmally to resolve, or even seriously debate, the major issues” facing the country.  

In a scathing statement, Saftu said the policy conference “confirmed beyond any doubt” the federation’s view “that this once mighty liberation movement has degenerated into a politically bankrupt, faction-ridden shambles”.  The five-day policy conference held in Johannesburg ended on Wednesday.  The conference was but “a battleground of warring factions, neither of which had any solutions to our economic and social crisis, but were only concerned with strengthening their power within the ANC and the country,” indicated the statement issued by Patrick Craven, Saftu acting spokesperson.
