The ruling ZANU PF party has been invited alongside other regional former liberation parties for South Africa’s African National Congress (ANC) rally at the Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday.
South Africans vote next Wednesday in an election that the ruling ANC party is afraid of losing its parliamentary majority for the first time.
Zanu-PF Secretary of Administration, Obert Mpofu, revealed that the party will be represented by Edna Madzongwe and Mail Nkomo at the “Siyanqoba” star rally. Said Mpofu:
I was there two weeks ago to lend our support as a party but for the Sunday programme, the party has sent Cdes Madzongwe and Nkomo to represent us.
Our message to our fellow liberation movement that championed the liberation of South Africa is that we wish them success in the coming elections, we also wish that they conduct their elections in a free and fair environment.
Other regional parties invited for the occasion include the People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA), Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) from Tanzania, and the Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO).
