The African Independent Congress (AIC) is a minor political party in South Africa.

It was founded on 12 December 2005 in the Matatiele locality in protest against the inclusion of the area in the Eastern Cape by the ANC government, rather than KwaZulu-Natal.[2]

It won 10 seats in elections to the Matatiele municipality in the 2006 local government elections, 1 seat in the Eastern Cape provincial legislature in the 2009 elections and 7 seats in the Eastern Cape and Kwazulu-Natal in the 2011 local government elections.[1]
