Johannesburg - The ANC emerged united and stronger from its centennial year and looked forward to the new year, the ANC in the North West said on Monday.

"We bid farewell to the year of the centenary of the ANC not doubtful that ours is a more united, stronger and cohesive movement," said spokesperson Kenny Morolong.

Amongst the party's milestones was the election of five of the party's members in the North West to the ruling party's national executive committee during the elective conference held two weeks ago in Mangaung.

"This representation is unprecedented. We take pride that those elected have served the ANC at all levels... their track record will help them formulate discussions that will add value growth of our movement."

Morolong said the party was impressed by the work of the Marikana Commission of Inquiry into the deaths of 44 people during wage-related protests at Lonmin mine in Marikana, North West. The ANC was also looking forward to hosting the African Cup of Nations in January, with Rustenburg being one of the country's host cities for the event.

The party also wished former president Nelson Mandela a full recovery at his home in Houghton, Johannesburg, after he was diagnosed with a lung infection and also underwent gallstone surgery.
