President Jacob Zuma said at a Gala Dinner in Sandton on Saturday evening that the African National Congress (ANC) should unite, if it wants the country to progress.
The ANC on Sunday celebrates its 105th birthday at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto.
“We must not go down in history books as a leadership collective that spends months or even years fighting in parliament and in society and was unable to move South Africa forward.”
He says unity is important for the ANC now this year.
“Help us to build it and shape it to become united and strong so that it can move out country forward.”
He continued that South Africa was in good hands, while under the leadership of the ANC.
