The South African Communist Party (SACP) believes that the late freedom fighter Joe Slovo would be able to recognise the progress made by the ANC since the dawn of democracy.
However, SACP spokesperson Alex Mashilo says Slovo would not support what he terms corporate capture in the country.
We think that he would acknowledged the progress that our revolution has made since 1994, and of course he would look at the challenges we are facing today.— Alex Mashilo, Spokesperson and Head of Communications of the South African Communist Party (SACP)
Mashilo says the former SACP leader helped build the ANC under very difficult circumstances and would understand the current state of the liberation movement in all its complexity.
The SACP has commemorated the 21st anniversary of the death of struggle stalwart this week.
Mashilo spoke openly about the state of political affairs in South Africa, and the tensions between the Tripartite Alliance.
