Ramaphosa campaigns in KZN, says ANC only party committed to uplifting people
President Cyril Ramaphosa has commended the ANC-led government in this region for being the best countrywide when it comes to the building houses for the poor.
MASINENGE, KWAZULU-NATAL – President Cyril Ramaphosa says that KwaZulu-Natal will always be the home of the African National Congress (ANC) and he insists that the party remains the only organisation committed to uplifting the lives of people.
Ramaphosa began his door-to-door campaign in the lower South Coast region on Monday morning, starting in the Masinenge informal settlement.
The ward is currently led by the Democratic Alliance (DA) after the previous ANC councillor was voted out during the 2016 local government elections.
Ramaphosa addressed a community meeting where he urged residents to attend the party’s 107th anniversary celebration taking place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium this Saturday.
