Historical background of  SOMAFCO Regional Political Committee

The Regional Political Committee derived its authority from the policy of the 
National Executive Committee of the ANC issued in January 1978 in which the tasks of RPC were set out as follows, that: a) in any region the RPC was the highest political 
organ of the Movement; b) the RPC ensured that all members of the Organisation were integrated in functioning branches, and members were actively involved in the work of the Movement; c) the RPC ensured that NEC was acquainted with such political, social and other problems as members might face.
