Our Guiding Principles

The African Congress for Transformation is a progressive political movement established in 2023 with the primary objective of addressing social, economic, and political disparities through a transformative approach that emphasizes unity, equity, and the well-being of all citizens.

Our vision is to create a society where the principles of Pan-Africanism and Marxism converge, fostering a united and egalitarian South Africa. We aspire to eliminate poverty, inequality, and exploitation while empowering marginalized communities to actively participate in shaping their own destiny.

The mission of the ACT is to challenge systemic injustices and advocate for the working class. We are dedicated to building a society free from oppression, where the wealth and resources of the nation are distributed fairly among all citizens.

Core Values:

  1. We firmly believe in the solidarity and unity of all African people, striving to promote co-operation for a stronger continent.
  2. We recognize the role of class struggle in shaping history and advocating for a classless society based on collective ownership.
  3. We are committed to eradicating social inequalities, uplifting marginalized communities, and ensuring that all individuals have equal access to opportunities.
  4. We seek to eliminate economic disparities and create a society where wealth is distributed equitably among all citizens, regardless of their background.
  5. People’s Empowerment: We believe in empowering ordinary citizens to actively participate in decision-making processes, allowing their voices to shape policies that affect their lives.
  6. We advocate for environmentally sustainable policies that prioritize the well-being of current and future generations.
