Call for ANC supporters to wear ANC regalia on Fridays

2014-03-03 00:00

AS the country’s political parties head into overdrive to campaign for votes ahead of the May elections, one political party wants to use its colours to make a political point.

The ANC has called on its supporters to wear their black, green and gold regalia every Friday for the duration of the election campaign.

ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe made the request after the launch of the “ANC Fridays” campaign in Umlazi at the weekend. “We are calling on all ANC supporters throughout our country to wear their ANC regalia every Friday. As our election campaign heats up, we have to make sure that we make this country black, green and gold each Friday from now up until the day of the elections,” Mantashe said.

Mantashe described the “ANC Fridays” campaign as a wonderful idea for all provinces. “We are expecting all provinces to ensure that all comrades are activated so that this programme becomes what we want it to be.”
