African National Congress members were to host a banquet celebrating the party’s 97th birthday on Friday with party leader Jacob Zuma expected to give the key note address.

Cabinet ministers such as Membathisi Mdladlana and Naledi Pandor were rubbing shoulders with diplomats such as British High Commissioner Paul Boateng and ANC officials like Gwede Mantashe.

Zuma was likely to speak about the ANC’s successes over the last 97 years and may talk about plans for the future.

The ANC president was also likely to give some details about the party’s election manifesto.
