Quote of the Day

South Africa's largest trade union today said the ruling ANC, a traditional ally, should be brought down like the apartheid regime if it did not deliver on its promises. Speaking at a special congress, National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) secretary general Irvin Jim said government policy was failing to address poverty, joblessness and inequality.

"If the ANC does not deliver the goods you must do to it what you did to the apartheid regime," he said, saying he was quoting Nelson Mandela's words to the labour movement 20 years ago.
