JOHANNESBURG - The ANC has no history of implementation and job creation.

This is according to political analyst Prince Mashele who was reacting to the party's endorsement of economic measures.

On Wednesday, the governing party announced that it had endorsed Finance Minister Tito Mboweni’s economic recovery plan.

The party's NEC discussed the document at its meeting last weekend.

“To be honest, I don't think there are reasons to take the ANC seriously. Why do I say so? It is because it is not for the first time the ANC is announcing some kind of an economic plan. In the recent past, we have had a thing called the growth path, we have had a thing called the National Development Plan, we have had a thing called the stimulus package...”

Mashele says despite the ANC's adoption of the economy plan by Mboweni, the country will not see any growth nor job creation.

“We are where we are economically, because of the ANC government. That is the truth about them. Why must ordinary South Africans believe them?” said Mashele.

Mboweni's plan has been met with criticism with the ANC’s alliance partners saying there were not consulted.
