After visiting several areas around Tshwane, Zuma says he can confidently say the capital city belongs to the ANC.

"I'm actually clear that Pretoria is safe in the hands of the ANC, no doubt about it."



The president interacted with residents during a door-to-door campaign, who raised concerns ranging from unemployment to lack of funds for higher learning.

Zuma says the ANC has listened.

"I must also say, they acknowledge that there has been delivery but there are other challenges."

He's promised residents there are plans and budgets in place to deal with their issues.
