Membership oath declaration

I solemnly declare that I will abide by the aims, objectives and radical policies of uMkhonto Wesizwe (MK) as set out in the Constitution of the MK. I voluntarily join the MK without any motive of personal gain or material benefit, and understand that I am not entitled to any positions or deployments. I will participate in the life of the uMkhonto Wesizwe to strive towards total emancipation of South Africa, Africa and the oppressed of the world and will do so as a loyal, active and disciplined uMkhonto Wesizwe.

I further declare to defend the proud and militant legacy of the fallen heroines and heroes. To work towards a South Africa that belongs to all who live in it.

Defend the African revolutionary tradition against all forms of tendencies that promote hatred, division, underdevelopment, corruption and social discords. I vow to defend and selflessly pursue the realization of the seven non-negotiable cardinal pillars as a primary political program of the MK contained in the Founding Manifesto.

I further commit to abide by the principle of democratic centralism which is that the individual is subordinate to the organization, the minority is subordinate to the majority, the lower level is subordinate to the higher level, and decisions of the upper structures are binding on the lower structures
