The ANC’s election campaign is underway in Port Elizabeth. President Cyril Ramaphosa says the ANC has developed a strategy to address the scourge of violence in the crime-ridden communities of the country.

He is addressing dozens of community members from Kleinskool at the George Botha community hall.

“There are communities that are reeling under the scourge of violence that is spreading throughout our country. At cabinet level, we have come up with a strategy, a strategy that will put the criminals behind bars, a strategy that will put all those criminals where they belong for a very long time.”

The President is expected to also visit other areas in the Bay including New Brighton and Motherwell.

Earlier, Ramaphosa received a warm welcome from the community.
