Friday is the day for the ANC to get together

first_imgThe crowd grew larger as ANC supporters gathered at Wimpy Park this afternoon for an ‘ANC Friday’…At about midday, the ANC Women’s League embarked on a march from the Town Hall down to Wimpy Park, where activities were planned to take place.One of the supporters stated that the day was for all ANC comrades to see that they are a big family and to bring them together.A second march was held at about 3pm when other supporters and members marched from the ANC offices in Murchison Street to Wimpy Park.Regional spokesperson Mlungisi Ndlangisa commented that it was just an average ANC day, as this is just part of the programme they have been running since the voter registration date.“The ANC work every day to campaign for their party, but Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays are the time they do the most work, and every Friday is ‘ANC Friday’,” said Mr Ndlangisa.When asked how he, as well as other ANC members and supporters, felt that Julius Malema was in town, Mr Ndlangisa said, “I was not even aware he was coming into town until this morning. It does not give us goosebumps, as all parties are currently active and it is just a normal day for us all.” The entertainment started at approximately 4pm, as the programme was running a bit late (it could not commence at 1pm as planned), and ANC members waited for others to knock off work.Artists such as Lvovo, Professor, DJ Merlon and Zakes Bantwini were booked for this ‘ANC Friday’.They also stated that one of the next ANC events to look forward to will be the Mini Rally tomorrow (Saturday) at 11am at the intersection of Newcastle and Helpmekaar Road.

first_img Top Stories Comments Share GLENDALE — Bobby Massie knows exactly when his rookie season turned for the better.“After I got tired of getting my ass kicked, probably after sack No. 12. That’s when it kicked in,” he said with a smile Friday. “I wasn’t used to getting beat like that; never happened in my career before. It was a big shock to me.”According to Pro Football Focus, Massie led the NFL in sacks allowed with 13, but none over the final eight games. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact As is Winston, who started all 16 games at right tackle last season for Kansas City.“You compete every year you’re in the league,” he said following his first practice with his new team Friday. “Those guys that don’t think they’re competing every year in the league, they’re usually out of it pretty fast. I’ve been lucky enough to be a starter for a long time, played a lot of consecutive games (103 consecutive starts at right tackle), but every year I’ve come into camp trying to win a spot. This year won’t be any different.”On the left side, Levi Brown (returning from a triceps injury) and Nate Potter (six starts last season) will battle for the starting tackle position.“Everywhere along that line right now, we’ve got really good competition,” Arians said. “In due time, we’ll settle down to who the five are.” – / 25 Massie credits that to a change in attitude and a better mental approach, including better study habits.“I’m going to be honest,” he said, “I wasn’t real big in studying. I’d never done it before and the job requires you to. I buckled down in the playbook, film and practice. (My play) picked up as you all saw.”As much he improved — he was the only Cardinals rookie to start every game — Massie’s hold on the starting right tackle spot is far from a sure thing.Thursday, the club signed seven-year veteran tackle Eric Winston.“Very open,” responded head coach Bruce Arians when asked how open the competition is at right tackle. “It’s very tough too. I feel very comfortable right now we’re going to come out with a really good right tackle and a really good backup because they’re going to go after each other.”Said Massie, a fourth-round pick in 2012, “I mean I’m not worried about it. We have an issue with depth at tackle. We needed a guy to come in. He’s a good player. He’s a veteran. That’s what it’s all about, competing for your job. They’re not just going to give it to me. I’m going to have to work for it. I’m happy to do it.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellinglast_img read more
