THE ruling African National Congress (ANC) has deployed party stalwarts in the Western Cape ahead of its 103rd anniversary celebrations.

The celebrations have been set for this coming weekend.

Among key ANC National Executive Committee (NEC) members to engage the Western Cape communities on the significance of the anniversary comprise President Jacob Zuma, party Secretary General, Gwede Mantashe, Deputy President, Cyril Ramaphosa, National Chairperson, Baleka Mbete, Treasurer General, Zweli Mkhize, and Deputy Secretary General, Jessie Duarte.

Party spokesman, Zizi Kodwa, said members of the NEC would be deployed on Monday.

Kodwa said the ruling party has been at the forefront since the democratic breakthrough in 1994 with the view to lay foundation for marking the 60th anniversary of the Freedom Charter scheduled for June this year.

Leading the walkabout, blitz and public meeting on Monday is Zuma, who is expected to meet local communities in Zone 9 KwaLanga township.

The following day on Tuesday, Zuma is set to go door-to-door at Phillipi Township at Marcus Gavey SEction in Ward 35, Vietnam Street before being involved in a walkabout at Nyanga Bus Terminal Taxi Rank.

The walkabouts will be followed by others on Wednesday and Thursday at Stellenbosch Sub-Region of Franschoek Township as well as Mitchellsplein – Prominad Mall before holding a mini Rally at OR Tambo Hall, Khayelitsha Township.

Other NEC members would do the same in different parts of the Western Cape Province.

Several African liberation movements, former presidents, sitting presidents from the Southern African Development Community (SADC) leadership and the African Union (AU) are expected to grace the 103rd anniversary celebrations.
