The South African Communist Party (SACP) is on the campaign trail at Mbekweni, in Paarl, (in the Boland) ahead of the upcoming elections.

The party’s Central Committee Member, Buti Manamela, and party supporters went door to door in the area, during a walkabout.

The party’s walkabout at Mbekweni in Paarl forms part of its plan to mobilise support for the ANC for the upcoming Local Government Elections.

During the visit, Manamela interacted with the residents and listened to their concerns regarding service delivery. A lack of housing and the high level of unemployment in the area were some of the issues that the community members raised.

Manamela says residents should vote for the ANC in the upcoming elections because the ruling party will improve service delivery and provide more opportunities for people in the area.
