ANC: centenary torch makes its way to Wembezi

2012-04-19 00:00

THE ANC’s centenary torch, which was lit during the party’s birthday celebrations in Bloemfontein earlier this year, arrived in Wembezi in the Uthukela District Municipality yesterday.

The torch has already been through the Free State, Western Cape and Eastern Cape.

At the torch hand-over in Wembezi were high ranking officials in the province, including the provincial deputy chairperson Willies Mchunu, chairperson of the eThekwini region Sibongiseni Dhlomo, and ANC NEC member Jessie Duarte.

Dhlomo, who was the MC at the event, said the torch would make an appearance in Mountain Rise tomorrow, where ANC president Jacob Zuma would address the gathering.

An ANC motorcade, paid for by the party, will take the torch to all 16 districts in the region. Ceremonies will be held at each stop-over, including mini-rallies and visits to the homes of struggle heroes.
