Going to be hot, hot, hot at ANC party

2012-01-04 20:06

Johannesburg - Mangaung, the scene of ANC centenary celebrations in the Free State, could experience a heatwave over the weekend.

Puseletso Mofokeng, a senior forecaster at the SA Weather Service, on Wednesday advised the organisers at the African National Congress' centenary celebrations to make sure water was in plentiful supply for people attending.

"We are expecting temperatures of between 33°C and 38°C around Bloemfontein, the south-west parts of North West, the west of the Free State and the eastern parts of the Northern Cape," he said.

A lack of cloud cover over this region would contribute to temperatures rising.

The main event of the centenary celebrations was scheduled to start on Friday.

On Saturday cultural events are planned to be held at the Mangaung outdoor sports grounds. On Sunday party leader President Jacob Zuma, was scheduled to deliver the annual January 8 speech.

Paramedics ER24 warned the public to prevent heat exhaustion, spokesperson Andre Visser said.

"It is especially during extreme heat conditions that paramedics are called out to various incidents relating to excessive heat or exhaustion."

      Malema, Jesus loves you, Malema, Your mother loves you, Malema, Your father loves, Repent, Manpara, repent, Repent, Ignorant, repent, Repent, Negligent, repent, Repent, Liar, repent, Repent, Thief, repent, Repent, Baby Killer, repent, Repent, Genocider, repent! Okai, stop the bus, how can you say all that? Lets have a look: Malema is Ignorant that the Failed Communist Countries like the USSR, China, Vietnam, Cuba, etc, employed Central Control Economies ( CCE ), with full and total nationalization. Negligent - as the head of an organization, it is his duty to be fully informed of the economic history of total disasters of CCE. He does not know that Gorbachov announced reforms away from nationalization – in the early 1980’s! He is a Liar, because these are not his ideas, these ideas have been around for over 100 years. Thief, he has stolen the PEOPLES money – that is how bribery and corruption works. Baby Killer, as a member of the ANC – Abortion Murder Genocide, is guilty of the Genocide of 800 000 black babies in government hospitals! Genocider, as a member of the ANC – Abortion Murder Genocide, is guilty of the Genocide of 5 Million Aids sufferers which were refused medication. Repent, Manpara, Repent!

    "to make sure water was in plentiful supply for people attending." I can assure you there will be more than enough beer and whiskey for the comrades to compensate for the lack of water..
