JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng African National Congress (ANC) Chairperson Paul Mashatile has urged supporters to conduct themselves peacefully and adhere to the Independent Electoral Commission's (IEC) rules during the upcoming elections.
Mashatile addressed party supporters a short while ago at the provincial manifesto launch at the FNB Stadium.
The ANC's leadership, including President Jacob Zuma, Cyril Ramaphosa, David Makhura and Mashatile, were greeted by a jovial crowd, although the stadium is not filled to capacity as they had expected.
