GALLERY: ANC's 103rd anniversary

Thousands of ANC supporters have gathered at Cape Town Stadium to celebrate the 103rd anniversary of the ruling party.

Cape Town - The ANC must be protected from those within its ranks who sought to further their own interests, President Jacob Zuma said at the party's 103rd birthday bash in Cape Town on Saturday.

"We must continuously guard against the manipulation of our democratic processes by those among us who wish to use the ANC for personal gain and self-aggrandisement," he said.

The ANC had no room for ill-discipline, Zuma said.

"Our major task is to deepen discipline and service to the people.

"Let us root out those members and representatives who are corrupt, factional, and who undermine the unity and cohesion of this great movement."

He thanked the ruling party's elderly supporters for their loyalty and said they served as a reservoir of knowledge for the party.

Zuma was expected to use his speech, which traditionally sketches the ANC's priorities for the political year ahead, to recall the values of the freedom charter which was adopted 60 years ago by the ANC and its allies.

The ANC brought supporters from across the country to the event which is being held in a city and province ruled by the opposition Democratic Alliance.
