Cyril Ramaphosa addressing ANC supporters in Inanda ,KwaZulu-Natal before the ANC’s 106 birthday celebration accompanied by other ANC leaders paid tribute the founding members of the organisation.

He paid tribute to ANC founding members like John Langalibalele Dube, Chief Albert Luthuli, Josiah Gumede and Pixley Isaka ka Seme.

“We hope that the roles that the ANC presidents like John Langalibalele Dube, Chief Albert Luthuli, Josiah Gumede and Pixley Isaka ka Seme have played are taught in our schools in order to enrich our history instead of only always being taught about Jan Van Riebeeck,”said Ramaphosa.

He talk about rooting out corruption and advancing radical socio-economic transformation is what the former leaders would want.

“We are going to be determined to root out corruption in our ranks. That is what we’ll do because it undermines the interests our people as a whole,”added Ramaphosa.
