ANC cancels January 8 celebrations

Johannesburg The ANC has cancelled all its January 8 events for 2021.

The annual commemorations celebrate the party’s anniversary. Instead, African National Congress (ANC) President Cyril Ramaphosa, will deliver a virtual January 8 statement.

The governing party says it has met with Health Minister Dr. Zweli Mkhize, who indicated the rate of infections in all provinces would have increased by January.

The ANC says it would have been inappropriate to forge ahead with the celebrations.

The party says it has decided to uphold prescribed measures to minimise the spread and impact of the coronavirus.
