African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) leader, Reverend Kenneth Meshoe says his party will make sure that investor confidence is restored in South Africa, if they are elected to power in the May 8 general elections.
He says the continuing acts of crime intimidate those who are keen to bring business to the country. Meshoe says it is up to South Africans to vote for his party and see change.
Meshoe was addressing the media at the Johannesburg City Hall, during his party’s launch of the Gauteng Provincial Election Manifesto.
“All investors, both locally and internationally, want to feel safe in a country they invest in. We want to make sure that corruption is over and crime is not a problem, because when we have investors being scared to come – we have seen that potential investors being mugged in South Africa. So we say when crime is dealt with – then the soil becomes attractive to those who want invest, the field becomes attractive.”

Meshoe says they going to make wonders in the Western Cape and put the Democratic Alliance (DA) on the opposition benches.
“In fact we are giving the DA a run for their money, in the by-elections at Bondieville, we cut the DA majority support by 20% . The ACDP moved from 0.5% to 20%, which is unbelievable and which is excellent. We are definitely cutting into their base because many people are saying we are taking the ACDP seriously, they are people of integrity.”
