It is nearly that time of the year again - the ANC's birthday celebrations. The ruling party is set to turn 108 years old on 8 January and they are ready to party.
Briefly.co.za learned the ANC took to its official Facebook page to ask South Africans to show their support for the ruling party ahead of the 108 birthday celebrations.
The party shared a photo of the president and his second in command and asked social media users to make the image their profile picture.
Take a look at the post below:
The post generated mixed reactions. ANC supporters were more than willing to adhere to the ruling party's request and they didn't hesitate to show their support.
Smiso Rowan Lembede wrote:
"Will do so with love, respect and admiration for my party. Proudly ANC."
Leonard Mthombeni added:
"United we stand but divided we fall."
Nonofo Roux Mosimege said:
"Proudly an ANC Member. Unite ANC, unite. Lead President Ramaphosa, lead."
However, not everyone was eager to jump on the ANC 108th birthday wagon. Many told the ruling party to focus on service delivery and the economy and not another party.
Bongani Gqamu Khumalo commented:
"I think ANC should do away with this rubbish celebration but concentrating on serving people."

"Please stop the lavish spending and celebrating. Concentrate on service delivery and seeing to the needs of the poor, that will ensure you governance for a long time."

"We are disappointed, may this year be a, year or reflection and serving the people of this country with patriotism, integrity and selflessness."
Basi Magaga added:
"When are you going to show your support and loyalty to South Africa?"
