Anc And The Struggle

Rating: 4.7

January 1912, Mzansi brought forth a child
In a harsh political climate
Destined to free her people
Bound to cruel Fate
Long Live Child Of Necessity!
Viva ANC!

His growth fraught with perils
But nurtured by sons and daughters of the soil
Deprived of dignity and birthright

Whose cardinal offense is not being 'White'

The ANC is the best, fairest political party which South Africa has known. The 'Rainbow Nation' has replaced the white nation.

Hi Poet, ANC was formed in 1912, exactly on the lines of Indian National Congress formed in 1887, with the same purpose, same philosophy. Non- iolence was the core ideology for both. Like Gandhi, Nehru, Subhash Bose and other leaders of INC, the leaders of ANC including Nelson Mandela were jailed. For pretty long time. Finally, the alien oppressors bowed before them. In both the cases. Such is the power of non-violence.
