“The full liberation of black people, and especially African South Africans, will now have to be pursued through renewed initiatives and a new progressive movement such as this one that we are now undertaking to establish.


“There is no one inside the ANC who has the interests at heart to pursue RET policies. It has become necessary for some of us to pursue these through the launch and establishment of what will be called the Radical Economic Transformation Movement. This will be a new broad civil society and political movement that will work for the full liberation of the people of South Africa,” he said.
