The African National Congress (ANC) is the Republic of South Africa's governing political party. It has been the ruling party of post-apartheid South Africa since the election of Nelson Mandela in the 1994 election, winning every election since then. Cyril Ramaphosa, the incumbent President of South Africa, has served as leader of the ANC since 18 December 2017.
Founded on 8 January 1912 by John Langalibalele Dube in Bloemfontein as the South African Native National Congress (SANNC), its primary mission was to bring all Africans together as one people, to defend their rights and freedoms. This included giving full voting rights to black South Africans and mixed-race South Africans and, from 1948 onwards, to end the system of apartheid introduced by the Nationalist Party government after their election (by White voters only) in that year.
The ANC originally attempted to use non-violent protests to end apartheid; however, the Sharpeville massacre in March 1960, in which 69 black Africans were shot and killed by police and hundreds wounded during a peaceful protest, contributed to deteriorating relations with the South African government. On 8 April 1960, the administration of Charles Robberts Swart banned the ANC in South Africa. After the ban, the ANC formed the Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation) to fight against apartheid utilising guerrilla warfare and sabotage.

Let’s Talk Human Rights – A podcast investigating the current state of human rights in Africa.
Even in democratic constitutional states, human rights violations occur on a regular basis. However, emerging and developing countries, like most African countries, are particularly affected.
This podcast series takes us on a journey through sub-Saharan Africa and together, we will meet witnesses from East, West and Southern Africa.
These witnesses will share their current experiences, looking specifically at human rights violations with regards to education, women and children rights, racism, xenophobia, LGBT+ rights and press freedom, to name a few.
A special thank you goes to the Ugandan musician, opposition leader and presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, popularly known as “Bobi Wine”, who generously made his song "Situka!" available to our podcast, –“Let’s Talk Human Rights”.

Local Voices was established in 2019 as an election project. The partnership between Wits Radio Academy, the Media Development and Diversity Agency, the Children’s Radio Foundation, Africa Check and Open Society Foundation was meant to support election reporting on community radio. It has now made a return as a pilot project to give the work done at community radio level a wider range.
It is about stories of ordinary South Africans who have pinned their hopes on democratic South Africa to pay true to her promise of a free, fair and equal society.
