African National Congress (ANC) officials will lead various activities in preparation for the January 8th celebrations. The ruling party is ready for the hosting of its 110th Anniversary Celebration and the delivery of the annual January 8 Statement this coming Saturday, at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane, Limpopo.
The anniversary celebration of the African National Congress has been a tradition since 1972 when the movement issued its first statement in exile formerly known as special statements relating to major events or issues at the time.
ANC National Spokesperson Pule Mabe said from 1972, the ANC only issued its next January 8 statement in 1979 dubbed the Year of the Spear and became a lifelong practice that has been maintained to date. “The movement will once again use the occasion of its 110th Anniversary to reflect on the road that still lies ahead.”
Mabe added that as part of the build-up activities, members of the National Executive Committee led by National Officials will descend to all regions of the province of Limpopo to engage with various sectors of society.
