It looks like the ANC Centenary celebrations are going to be quite a party! And this weekend's events are just the start – it's going to be a long year.
Of course, big celebrations like these don't come cheap – just as well the ANC is the ruling party.
Pretty hard to miss that the ANC is 100 years old this year. Strangely, I didn't even notice the celebrations in 2010 of South Africa's 100 years as an independant country. Sure, it wasn't wall-to-wall great moments – but surely worth some sort of a mention.
A rather stark reminder that the ANC is more important than anything else in this country. Everything and everyone else is just along for the ride.
