vp nkomo and anc sc gwede.pngAfrican National Congress Secretary General, Cde Gwede Mantashe (insert) says revolutionary parties should continuously engage each other and map out strategies in response to a scaled-up onslaught by neo-colonial forces against liberation movements.

Briefing journalists after a high level meeting with Acting President, Cde John Nkomo (pictured), the visiting ANC Secretary General says his visit is part of ongoing efforts by revolutionary parties to share ideas with a view to further strengthen themselves as the pressure of neo-colonialists is mounting.

Cde Mantashe and his delegation later paid a courtesy call on Vice President Cde Joice Mujuru.

Asked about his party’s position on Libya, he said the events in North Africa are a clear demonstration of the manifestation of the West’s eagerness to loot African resources.

On the indigenisation programme in Zimbabwe, the ANC Secretary General said Zimbabwe is a sovereign state that has the right to embark on its own programmes to address certain inequalities that exist as a result of colonisation.

Liberation movements in Africa have been holding meetings in a bid to share notes on how to tackle the challenge of neo-colonialism with the first one held in Tanzania and recently in Namibia.
