Ramokgopa: ANC’s strength lies in high voter turnout
Outgoing Tshwane mayor Kgotsientso Ramokgopa has now cast his vote in his home town of Atteridgeville.
JOHANNESBURG - Outgoing Tshwane mayor Kgosientso Ramokgopa has now cast his vote in his home town of Atteridgeville near Pretoria.
The decision by the African National Congress not to have Ramokgopa stand for mayor again this year led to widespread violent protest in the country's capital which left at least five people dead.
Ramokgopa says the ruling party's strength lies in a high voter turnout.
"Our key to success is high voter turnout then we're more than confident.
"We still remain bullish but obviously we'll wait until the results are announced, for now we're encouraging people to go vote."
