Have you taken the #AmandlaChallenge? It’s simple. All you have to do is raise your fist, snap a photo and post it on social media with the hashtag.
In the run up to its 103rd bithrday bash in Cape Town on Saturday, the African National Congress (ANC) has asked citizens to show support and remember the party’s selfless struggle against apartheid through selfies.
And many South Africans have eagerly complied.

It’s not just South Africans who are in on the fun, though. It seems Twitter has found some well-known celebs who’ve joined the party.

The ruling party might be getting ready to eat, dance, and go wild. But already signs of a hangover are showing.
R3mil to sit at Zuma’s table at ANC’s 103 birthday and R2mil for Ramaphosa’s table. What returns should purchasers expect? #moneyandpolitics
