Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa says he is confident that the people of Soweto on Sea in Port Elizabeth will be voting for the African National Congress (ANC) in the upcoming Local Government Elections.
Ramaphosa visited the area in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality on Friday ahead of the ANC’s election manifesto launch in the area on Saturday.
He says he is encouraged by the mood of the people in the area.
“We see something that is different, heart-warming, the people have issues, they have challenges but at the same time they remain hopeful that the one organisation they can trust to address their problems and challenges is the ANC. It is a question of confidence and trust that they have in the ANC.”
