CAPE TOWN - Head of the African National Congress's (ANC) Mobilisation and Campaign Programme Nomvula Mokonyane at the weekend said the party strongly believed it can reclaim the Western Cape.

Mokonyane, who is also the Gauteng Premier, took the ANC's election campaign to the Nyanga township on Sunday where the 500 Volunteer Programme was launched.

Mokonyane stressed the importance of a good voter turnout in Nyanga, saying voter turnout was always a concern for the ANC.

However, she said the ANC was not without faith and believed it could win back the Western Cape from the Democratic Alliance (DA).

"Every province is important and the Western Cape is no exception. We have not given away the possibility of taking over the Western Cape."

She called on volunteers to help increase voter turnout, even in areas where the ANC have strongholds, such as Nyanga.
