President Zuma to woo Tshwane voters

The African National Congress (ANC) campaign to retain control of Tshwane Metro will be bolstered by the visit of President Jacob Zuma to several townships in the area on Tuesday.

This is his first visit to the townships since the outbreak of violence last month after National Executive Council (NEC) member, Thoko Didiza, was announced as mayoral candidate.

President Zuma’s visit to Tshwane townships is seen as an attempt by the ANC to quell tension created by Didiza’s nomination.

For her part, Didiza has hit the road running criss-crossing the Tshwane region to restore trust amongst disgruntled members aligned to executive mayor, Kgosientso Ramokgopa.

Both the Democratic Alliance (DA) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) have also intensified campaigns to woo Tshwane prospective voters ahead of what is viewed as hotly contested municipal polls.

President Zuma will conduct door-to-door visits in Hammanskraal, Winterveldt and Atteridgeville.

The campaign will also include public meetings.
