Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has turned 72 and he will be celebrating his birthday in the Western Cape on Saturday, the ANC said.

"President Zuma will spend his day with the people of the Western Cape on an ANC voter contact programme and later with his family," said spokesperson Jackson Mthembu.

"The ANC sends birthday well wishes to the... a loyal servant of our people and dedicated leader of our country."

The African National Congress said it would also celebrate by continuing with its election campaign.

"The ANC will mark this day by further intensifying contact with our people, telling the good story... and mobilising them to vote ANC on 7 May."

Mthembu said it was fitting that on Zuma's birthday, the party reflects on the significant strides by ANC government in the last five years during his tenure.

The party's wish for Zuma was that he carry on with his important work.

"... We hope that today will provide a moment of celebration of the road traveled thus far, serving as further impetus to carry on the good and important work of serving our people," said Mthembu.
