    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.
