JOHANNESBURG - African National Congress (ANC) policy head Jeff Radebe on Friday said next week's policy conference will see delegates discuss how best to rejuvenate the party.
Radebe said the conference would also deliberate on how the state would kick-start the economy.
He and ANC secretary General Gwede Mantashe spoke at The New Age's business briefing in Sandton, in northern Johannesburg, on Friday.
Radebe said this conference is about planning for what the ANC calls the “second transition”.
“We propose leveraging state-owned enterprises, development finance institutions and entities as a catalyst in the achievements for the goals of the second transition.”
Mantashe said the ruling party needed to kick-start itself.
“Every organisation grows, it matures and if it matures but nothing happens to kick start the growth, it will ultimately decline.”
He said the party needed to make sure it stayed vibrant and relevant.
