The African National Congress says South Africa’s Constitution, which guarantees freedoms of speech, association and the media, makes the country a world acclaimed constitutional model, with a culture of human rights fully guaranteed.
ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu acknowledges that pockets of human rights abuses still plague the country.
But the party is satisfied that these including the recent brutal killing of Ficksburg activist Andries Tatane are being effectively dealt with by the criminal justice system.
