President Cyril Ramaphosa received a warm welcome from the community of Mfuleni during his election campaign trail on Thursday. Ramaphosa, who kicked off his campaign in Atlantis, arrived accompanied by interim provincial committee convenor Lerumo Kalako and other leaders.
ANC members, supporters and residents had waited for some time for Ramaphosa to arrive, while being entertained with revolutionary songs pumped from big speakers mounted on two ANC-branded bakkies.
“You can see he is a man. He can work for you,” he said.
“He is still young, that is what I like,” Ramaphosa said. The president said he was impressed that the community liked Madikane, whom they chose to be their councillor to win the ward for the ANC.
He said if the DA remained in power in the City of Cape Town, the sewage would continue to overflow in the streets and the DA would not care about them and their needs.
“The DA wants you to vote for it and it does nothing to improve your lives, you know it. Why not come in large numbers to vote for the organisation that can change your lives.
Ramaphosa said when the ANC previously governed in the City of Cape Town there had been huge progress in development in the form of houses, roads and electricity, among others. When you did not vote the ANC, the development came to an end. They (DA) look after the white areas,” he said.
