President Cyril Ramaphosa set to speak at ANC's 110th birthday party at Peter Mokaba Stadium, Limpopo
Briefly News previously reported that The African National Congress is forging ahead with preparations for its 110th birthday party, which will take place on 8 January, 2022, however, many South Africans do not believe it is a good idea for various reasons.
The party was unable to host celebrations last year because of concerns about the Covid19 pandemic, however, this time around, the party says the celebrations, which are always much-anticipated by supporters, will go ahead.
Unlike previous birthday parties that have been large-scale events, the ANC says it will only allow 2 000 people to attend the event scheduled to take place at Peter Mokaba Stadium in Limpopo, according to TimesLIVE.
