Afrikaans leaders to see ANC

About 50 Afrikaans leaders are flying to West Africa to attend a major conference alongside exiled political leaders, including senior ANC members, within the next week.

The conference will be hosted by the Institute for a Democratic Alternative in South Africa (Idasa) and has been set up over four months by Idasa founders Dr Frederik van Zyl Slabbert and Dr Alex Boraine.

The local delegation includes academics, church leaders, businessmen, political figures, journalists and others – almost all holding important, but not top, positions in their institutions.

Among the subjects they are expected to discuss at the three-day conference are the process of political change and the nature of post-apartheid society.
