Motshekga is among the African National Congress (ANC) heavyweights launching the party's local government election campaign in the province this weekend.
She joined Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa in Paarl where they addressed a gathering of religious leaders this afternoon.
A small group of religious leaders gathered at the annunciation hall to listen to ANC leaders on the campaign trail.
The minister called on them to encourage residents to register to vote in the local government elections later this year.
Motshekga said they were appealing to the youth in particular to register to partake in the elections.
She told the gathering the ANC wanted to turn over a new leaf in the Western Cape, and that the party wanted residents to let them know what they had to do to get their votes.
The election date has yet to be announced, but President Jacob Zuma has indicated it could be in August.
