CAPE TOWN - Western Cape ANC leader Marius Fransman says Congress of the People (Cope) members are flocking back to the ruling party in numbers.

Fransman accompanied President Jacob Zuma on a door-to-door campaign in Gugulethu on Sunday.

Fransman believes the trend of Cope members rejoining the ruling party will continue.

"There are three members of the legislature that have come and there are members of parliament who are coming. Most importantly it's not only members of parliament, it's also ordinary organisers, field workers and regional leadership.

"The whole structure of Cope in the Western Cape is collapsing today."

The Western Cape ANC has also defended a visit to a Mitchell's Plain church, saying it wasn't just an election ploy.

According to a pastor, the church boasts more than five million members countrywide.

The New Covenant Christian Church in Mitchells Plain says it supports the ANC's quest to win the Western Cape in the upcoming elections.

Addressing the congregation, Fransman admitted while the visit to the church forms part of the party's election campaign, it's not the first time they're attending the services.

Meanwhile, ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa says the party has intensified its electioneering efforts to secure a victory in the Western Cape.

He was addressing a large crowd at the Philippi Community Hall earlier today.

Ramaphosa is part of a high-level ANC delegation visiting the province.

He says recent protests in the Western Cape are indicative of people fed up with the slow pace of service delivery.

Ramaphosa says the ANC has a clear plan of ensuring a million more RDP houses in the next five years.

During his speech, he invited an elderly man on stage that has recently been given the keys to his house.

The man cried while thanking the ANC for his new home.
