    A

    NCTreasuryGeneral, Zwe-

    li Mkhize, said the ANC

    should be at the forefront of

    speaking out against cor-

    ruption and should be act-

    ing as whistle blowers and support all

    investigations into irregularities.

    Mkhize was speaking at the Alfred

    Nzo memorial lecture in Mount Ayliff

    Hall last week. He also called for deci-

    sive action to be taken to remove all

    those involved in corruption. TheANC

    must set an example of revolutionary

    morality and ethical leadership as a

    monument to our heroes, like Alfred

    Nzo, Oliver Tambo, Moses Kotane, Mo-

    ses Mabhida, Walter Sisulu, Albertina

    Sisulu and others.

    According to him, ANC leaders

    should demonstrate to SouthAfrica that

    Nelson Mandelas Legacy is safe with

    the ANC as legitimate custodian of all

    the values Madiba had represented,

    said Mkhize.

    In awarning toANCmembers against

    playing dirty political games, Mkhize

    said itwasnot in their culture and tradi-

    tion to air dirty laundry in public. He

    said leaking records of confidential de-

    liberations often distorted to favour

    personal points of view brought the

    ANC to public ridicule and scorn.

    We must stamp out division. Many

    instances where divisions appear are

    not owing to differences of opinions on

    how to implement theFreedomCharter,

    but on how to subvert governance by in-

    dividuals attempting toutilize their offi-

    cial status for personal gain, said

    Mkhize.

    He described Nzo as a good listener,

    respecting the opinion of all people,

    even that of his opposition. According

    to him Nzo was never intimidated and

    had the intellectual depth to positively

    influence people.

    TohonourAlfredNzo today,wemust

    work hard to rebuild the founding val-

    ues of the African National Congress.

    We must double our efforts to forge uni-

    ty and to fight against racism, tribalism

    and sexism.Weneed to build a truly car-

    ing and compassionate society, said

    Mkhize.

    The Alfred Nzo District Municipality

    was named after Nzo who was born and

    bred in the Thabachicha village in

    Matatiele.

    Alfred Nzo was the longest serving

    Secretary-General of the ANC. During

    his tenure, he was sent to various coun-

    tries including Egypt, India, Zambia,

    Norway, Tanzania and he had also rep-

    resented the ANC in the United Nations

    Assembly.

    Together with Oliver Tambo and oth-

    ers, Nzo formed part of the ANCs back-

    bone, holding down the fort and propa-

    gating the partys struggle while their

    comrades were imprisoned on Robben

    Island and in other prisons. Once the

    ban on the ANC had been lifted and Nel-

    son Mandela was released from prison

    in 1990, Nzo returned to South Africa.

    Nzo has received the Order of

    Friendship Among People, Praesidium

    of the Union of the Soviet Socialist Re-

    publics Supreme Soviet in 1985, and

    was also bestowed in 2003 with the The

    Order of Luthuli by former President

    Thabo Mbeki.

    Alfred Nzos sister, Nomazotsho Nzo,

    said she was very happy that her dis-

    trict municipality was still remember-

    ing him.

    AlfredNzo DistrictMunicipality Dep-

    uty ExecutiveMayor SixolileMehloma-

    khulu said they have decided to put

    aside June as Alfred Nzo month. They

    had also put aside some money to pro-

    duce a documentary on Nzos life in

    partnership with the Ekurhuleni Mu-

    nicipality in Gauteng and Zambia.

    In awarning to ANC

    members against

    playing dirty political

    games, Mkhize said it

    was not in their

    culture and tradition

    to air dirty laundry in

    public.

    WHILE other older women are enjoying their

    pension grants, a woman (90) from the Chris

    Hani Township in Mthatha has to use her

    grant money to provide for her nine grand-

    children.

    Nogungqile Lolwana is struggling to make

    ends meet, taking care of her grandchildren

    and her son.

    She is living in a cold, damp-smelling shack

    with a wet floor. Inside and out, this shack of-

    fers nothing that resembles a home for its res-

    idents. When the Express visited the shack,

    it was discovered that Lolwana was sleeping

    on a traditional mat with no pillow or mat-

    tress. Instead of a pillow, she uses clothes to

    put her head up.

    She said she was sharing her shack with

    her son and daughter-in-law, both of whom

    were unemployed and were collecting card-

    boards to sell.

    Life here is not good at all. I am living here

    because of my children. I maintain themwith

    my pension grant, because they are not work-

    ing and I love them very much, said Lolwa-

    na.She said recently she was visited by Bish-

    op Tshepo Machaea and members of the

    Ibandla laseMthini Evangelical Movement,

    who assisted her with groceries.

    According to Machaea, they received a

    phone call from one of the residents who told

    them Lolwanas story. Since one of our mis-

    sions in this congregation is to help people

    who are less fortunate, we decided to visit

    her.We did not believe our eyeswhenwe saw

    this elderly lady living and sleeping is such

    bad conditions. This tormented our hearts,

    because these people could end up getting

    pneumonia from sleeping on a wet floor.

    According to him, after seeing the situa-

    tion, they bought groceries for the family and

    contacted other congregations who donated

    clothes. Machaea said they would love to see

    thiswoman living inabetter place, since they

    honoured the elderly.

    Its really touching to see a 90-year-old

    woman sleeping in a place like this.Anything

    could happen to her. The door is not in good

    condition and there are holes in the wall.

    In response to an enquiry from Express,

    communications officer for the King Sabatha

    Dalindyebo Municipality, Sonwabo Mampo-

    za, said it was the first time he had heard of

    Lolwanas living conditions.
