The Zambia African National Congress
TOWARDS AN INPROVED REPUBLIC OF ZAMBIA
In the ancient Zambian tradition, hunters used to leave their homes and travelled long distances to fetching for prey. When they miss a track, they used to go back to where they might have gone wrong and started all over again. By retracing their footsteps, they were able to correct their way and move forward towards the right direction. This time, politically, we can follow what our forefathers did and retrace our steps and find what went wrong. ZANC takes us back to the beginning our indigenous Zambia's self governance. This is a movement of the people of Zambia to get back to the roots of the country's political and governance affairs. This is the getting back to the roots and starting afresh in modern and true governance for the prosperity of our nation.
ZANC's purpose is fairness: fair rules, fair chances and a fair say for everyone.
ZANC is a democratic socialist party. We believe that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few.
These democratic values will guide us through sustainable governance in the years to come: everything from the large canvas of economic stability, full employment and investment in public services, to the fine detail of the minimum wage, free social services and civil partnerships.
ZANC was there from the beginning. Now it has come to take its rightful place in the governance of the country. This time, with new leadership and goals, ZANC geared to revolutionise the lives of the Zambian people. The values ZANC stands for today shall remain:
- Social justice
- Strong community and strong values
- Reward for hard work
