South Africa's mines will be nationalised: ANCYL
South Africa's mines will be nationalised, ANC Youth League deputy president Ronald Lamola said on Monday.
"Comrades, we have won the debate on nationalisation," he told the league's Dr Mxolisi Majombozi branch at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.
"Even the African National Congress, if you can read their statement, they say we are at the point where we must look in terms of which minerals to nationalise."
Lamola was reporting back on the league's policy conference held in June, the role of the youth league, and reflecting on former president Nelson Mandela's contribution to the struggle.
"We have stated with this opportunity that has been given to us that we must now identify strategic minerals to be nationalised," he told the cheering crowd.
