John Mahama - Vice President

Vice President John Darmani Mahama has congratulated the African National Congress on its centenary celebration and their fight against racism and other forms of discrimination in South Africa.

He said their fight against apartheid and the commitment of their leaders would go down in history as one of the most celebrated victories of oppressed people against their repressors.

Vice President Mahama said this when speaking to journalists after an ANC event to celebrate its 100th anniversary at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein, South Africa.

He was among dozens of heads and deputy heads of state invited by President Jacob Zuma to the event that attracted tens of thousands of ANC supporters in their traditional black, green and gold colours.

Vice President Mahama observed that the ANC celebration represented a moment of joy for not only South Africans but Africans in general especially those who followed the struggle for liberation.

Mr Mahama who represented President John Evens Atta Mills at the event was accompanied by Johnson Asiedu Nketia, Secretary General of the NDC and Ludwig Hlodze, National Youth Organiser.

Also present at the event was former President Jerry John Rawlings and his wife, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings.

The ANC was formed in January of 1912 at the Waaihoek Wesleyan Church in Bloemfontein to increase the rights of the black South African population in their fight against apartheid.

The struggle led to South Africa holding its first universal elections in 1994, which the ANC won by an overwhelming majority.
