CAPE TOWN - The African National Congress (ANC) in the Western Cape believes its message of unity and social redress is enough to secure majority wins in significant municipalities across the province.

The ANC staged a final rally in Bellville yesterday.

The party's mayoral candidate for Cape Town, Xolani Sotashe said: "We're quite confident that we're going to pull a surprise come Wednesday. We went all out to make sure that we don't take any chances."

Meanwhile, loyal ANC supporters say there's no other party which can help deal with service delivery issues in their communities.

Some voters say they will back the party no matter what.

"The ANC is the only organisation that can lead this country and take it out of this mess."

Another voter said she loves the ANC and Nelson Mandela, adding that she will continue to vote for the party.

"Since 1994, I've been voting for the ANC and since then I will never change."
