The Azanian People's Organisation (Azapo) will hold its national congress in Soweto, Meadowlands, on Saturday.
The congress will take place within the context of the 40th anniversary of the murder of Steve Biko in police custody and this congress also coincides with the 39-anniversary of the formation of the organisation.
Azapo President Prof Itumeleng Mosala will launch the organisation's programme called "The Footsteps" (Following Steve Biko's Footsteps).
The theme is land, liberation and dignity.
Azapo will be discussing policies and electing new leadership.
Speaking to Karima Brown, Mosala spoke about "sloganeering" done by some political leaders when talking about what needs to be done to address South Africa's challenges.
Mosala says "there is no such a thing as white monopoly capital but there is monopoly capitalism", which he says knows no race.
He says the discourse around the white monopoly capital has become "so populist".
The purpose of our policy discussions on land, crime, education and colonial character of education, economic priorities, health challenges facing our country , are meant to be able to bring some form rationality and intellectual depth into the discussion.— Prof Itumeleng Mosala, Azapo President
Mosala says Azapo will also have to take seriously the role of young people in South African politics.
