This is one of the regions in KwaZulu-Natal that defied the former provincial executive by openly supporting Ramaphosa during his presidential campaign in the run-up to the Nasrec conference.
The president visited the Masinenge informal settlement, where a housing project has been launched by the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality.
He urged residents there to join the ANC for the unveiling of its election manifesto at the Moses Mabhida stadium this Saturday.

I visited the home of Bawinile Ndinga and I met her son Lundi who has just finished matric. He told me he had not applied to further his studies.
