The ANC wished former president Thabo Mbeki a happy and prosperous 70th birthday on Monday.
“We wish him many more years to come and hope that he will continue to serve and inspire South Africa and the world,” African National Congress spokesman Jackson Mthembu said in a statement.
Mbeki was the ANC's 11th president from 1997 to 2007.
“Like all the previous presidents of the ANC, comrade Mbeki has dedicated his life and time to the service of all South Africans, the African continent, and the world with diligence and dedication.”
Mthembu said the ANC would always be indebted to Mbeki for his commitment and dedication. - Sapa
