National Treasurer General of the African National Congress (ANC) – Matthew Phosa is going to address an ANC gathering in Phillipi on Sunday as part of the ruling party’s 96th Anniversary celebrations. The rally was held at Intsebenziswano Senior Secondary School inPhillipi.
Mcebisi Skwatsha who is the ANC’s Provincial Secretary said in a statement that this is the first time since the Polokwane Conference that an office bearer of the ANC is going to address a Western Cape crowd.
“Matthew Phosa and other speakers will reflect on the critical challenges facing the ANC and its allies in the province and nationally. This will include decisions of the recent January 8th statement and the National Executive Committee meeting,” said Skwatsha.
At the rally Phosa told hundreds of ANC members who gathered at the school not to get tired of saying the word 'unity' and that the Polokwane conference has come and gone - leaving the party united once again.
