The ANC hosted a successful celebratory event befitting a 103-year-old organisation and the biggest liberation movement on the continent.
The ANC would like to acknowledge the role played by all levels of the organisation, our leagues and alliance structures that touched every corner of this province in communicating the importance of this historic event while mobilising our people to attend.
The role played by the religious leaders, civil society organisations, diplomatic corps, business fraternity and other invited guests will always be remembered.
The ANC would also like to congratulate the Cape Minstrels on their unprecedented association with the organisation, against the backdrop of the failed endeavour by the DA-led City of Cape Town to raise conflict between the ANC and the minstrels in their attempts to sabotage the ANC event.
The Minstrels in their traditional, colourful and organised formations added colour to our celebration and reaffirmed a shared history between the ANC and the struggles of the slaves during the period of oppression. We were humbled by their readiness to postpone their scheduled event as a show of support for the ANC`s anniversary celebrations. Thank you.
