Mbeki rally is planned

Freed African National Congress leader Govan Mbeki is set to re-enter South Ahican political life in Cape Town next weekend – at a rally which could be the city's biggest in four years.

The rally, organised by Cape Town's Mbeki Reception Committee, is tentatively planned for November 29.

The former ANC chairman, released on November 6 has kept a low profile, appearing in public only twice. Although he is "listed" and cannot be quoted, he can speak at public gatherings.
