At its 53rd congress in the year of its 100th anniversary on 18th December 2012 in Mangaung (Bloemfontein) the ANC delegates re-elected Jacob Zuma as party president. This means he will most probably lead the ANC into the next presidential and parliamentary elections to be held around April 2014. This article by Arnold Wehmhoerner examines the moral decline of the ANC during the process from a liberation movement to a party in power. It looks at the political permutations during the Mbeki era and since then, as the party leadership which failed to provide positive role models for the public and party, which did not properly educate the new emerging elite or exert the necessary administrative controls, and which left corrupt and inefficient ANC cadres unpunished. With the re-election of Zuma this trend will not be reversed but, instead, will be exacerbated.
