Cape Town – The African National Congress Western Cape’s planned celebrations for the party’s 104th anniversary in Grabouw have been postponed till month end. 

The event was planned for Saturday, but was postponed at the last minute.

ANC provincial acting secretary Thandi Manikivana said on Saturday that the party had decided to postpone due to disagreements with the municipality involved.

The problems included the lack of availability of taps and portable toilets at its chosen venue.

“We’ve been trying to ensure we meet all requirements, but yesterday at 12pm, we elected to postpone the rally as we could not meet these requests,” she said.

Manyikiva said as the venue had already been paid for and most of the preparations were in place, the party would be holding the rally at the same venue so that the money would not go to waste.

The rally would now be held January 30.
