ANC to launch election music album

2011-02-19 20:40
Johannesburg - Cadres have been deployed to the North West to begin the build up to the election campaign launch, which includes a music album, on February 27 in Rustenberg, the ANC said.

"With the upcoming local government elections not far off, the ANC has pulled all the stops in gearing up for the launch of its election manifesto and campaign taking place next Sunday at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg," said spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said in a statement on Saturday.

A fund-raising gala will be held on February 26 at the Sun City Superbowl to launch the ANC election music album.

The album will feature artists Arthur, Chomee, Oskido, Professor, Chicco Twala, Deborah Fraser and Ihash' Elimhlophe among others.

"ANC cadres serving on the organisation’s highest decision-making body, the National Executive Committee, have already been deployed to engage in mini rallies, door-to-door- work as well as walkabouts as part of a mass mobilisation build-up to the manifesto launch."

Mthembu said the party expected 50 000 people to attend the launch which will be addressed by President Jacob Zuma.

He said the event would also be attended by foreign diplomats, dignitaries from the business community and religious and traditional leaders.

The party and its alliance partners will also be holding an Alliance Summit on February 24 and 25 in Pretoria and a National Working Committee meeting will take place on February 21 in Midrand.
