Social activist and Treatment Action Campaign co-founder, Zackie Achmat, says there is a lack of decent governance in the ANC and the party is turning into 'a gangster operation'.
Achmat became an activist at the age of 14, and participated in the 1976 uprising against Bantu Education. He says he doesn't want to belong to any of the political parties in South Africa.
He says he is excited about the current student movements across the country.
I'm excited about activism today. I think the black student movements at the universities, over the last few years, have shown a resistance. What they have shown is that there is a rebellion.— Zackie Achmat, social activist and Treatment Action Campaign co-founder
I think for people of my generation, it's critical to be supportive but to step back. And allow those young people to occupy the space.— Zackie Achmat, social activist and Treatment Action Campaign co-founder
Achmat told Xolani Gwala that he has moved from public health work and now focuses on urban land issues.
