The African National Congress Women's League (ANCWL) congratulates it's NEC member and ANC NEC member Cde Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma for receiving Lifetime Achiever Award at the Women Political Leaders (WPL) annual global forum held in Reykjavik Iceland from the 28th November 2017 till the 30th November 2017.
The 2017 WPL annual global forum was attended by over 250 female political leaders from all over the world. WPL global forum is the global network of female politicians with a mission of increasing both the number and the influence of women in political leadership positions. WPL members are women in political office - Ministers, Members of Parliaments and Mayors. WPL strives in all its activities to demonstrate the impact of more women in political leadership, for better global politics.
Cde Dr Nkosazana's commitment and dedication in improving the lives of the poor and the working class has earned her several local and international awards. The ANCWL congratulates her for this award from WPL global forum.
The ANCWL reaffirms its position that Cde Dr Nkosazana is an ideal candidate to lead the ANC leadership collective post December 2017 and lead the State in 2019. She is a tried and tested cadre of the ANC who serves with humility, integrity and selflessness. Her long service in the ANC structures at all levels and various Cabinet positions makes her an ideal candidate to lead the struggle to advance radical economic transformation in South Africa.
She has distinguished leadership skills required to advance fundamental changes of the structure, systems, institutions and patterns of ownership, management and control of the economy in favour of all South Africans, especially the poor, the majority of whom are African and youth and women.
Radical economic transformation now or never!!!
