JZ’s birthday a milestone – ANCWL

2012-04-12 11:14

President Jacob Zuma’s 70th birthday is a milestone that South Africans should be proud of, the ANC Women’s League said.

“Comrade Jacob Zuma has dedicated most of his 70 years to the African National Congress and to the people of South Africa and for that we thank him,” it said in a statement today.

“Not many can boast a track record of selfless service to the struggle and to the country as the president can.”

The women’s league said Zuma had contributed to the success of the ANC over its 100 years of existence.

Zuma turned 70 today.

He also received “proud” wishes from the ANC in his home province of KwaZulu-Natal.

“We are proud of the contribution comrade Zuma made during the painful liberation struggle, which saw him being separated from his family for years,” said KwaZulu-Natal ANC spokesman Sihle Zikalala.

“The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal also salutes president Zuma for the role he continues to play in our organisation and as the head of government in South Africa.”

ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said Zuma would settle for nothing less than the total emancipation of all South Africans.

“As a leader, he continues to inspire our people and give hope of a better tomorrow. We want to salute him for having spent the better years of his selfless life in the service of the people of South Africa.”
