Ramaphosa will outline the ANC’s plan of action for the year ahead.
For the first time since the governing party was unbanned in 1990, there will be no mass rally due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Head of Organising in the ANC, Nomvula Mokonyane, says efforts to deal with the coronavirus, tackling Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and femicide will form basis of the National Executive Committee (NEC) statement to be presented by Ramaphosa.
This year’s celebration will honour the second president of the party, Sefako Makgatho.
Makgatho was ANC president between 1917 and 1924.
