JOHANNESBURG - African National Congress (ANC) veterans Mavuso Msimang and Tokyo Sexwale have called on South Africans to trust the ANC in the upcoming local government elections and not focus on the challenges it's facing as they will be resolved after the polls.

The pair have joined the Gauteng ANC in door-to-door campaigns in Soweto today.

As the two veterans help the Gauteng ANC garner support ahead of elections, they are spreading the message that the party is the answer.

Sexwale, who is a former human settlement minister, says people must vote for the ANC because it has done a lot in changing their lives.

"We are here to remind people that there is track record, trust the ANC."

Msimang says while the party's leadership has made a number of mistakes, the organisation remains a good party.

"The ANC's body remains as good as ever, there have been serious mistakes that have been made at national leadership level."

The Gauteng ANC believes bringing these veterans on its campaign trail makes a huge difference.
