APC leader laments over empty promises ahead of polls

Reading Time: 2 minutes

President of the African People’s Convention (APC) Themba Godi says political parties must reflect what they have achieved for communities and not only make promises.

Godi is on an election campaign in Moruleng, near Sun City in the North West. He says the APC is committed to helping rural communities by ensuring have better access to services. A small group of elderly party followers attended an APC rally at the Bakgatla tribal offices.
Godi recently warned the Pondo tribe in Port St Johns not to repeat the mistake that was done by the Khoi-San in the Western Cape. He says the coloured community lost their identity and they ended up voting for the white people. He says Africanism is the core value of the APC.

Agang SA says it is hopeful of a good result on the May 7 general elections

Meanwhile, Agang SA says it is hopeful of a good result on the May 7 general elections. The fledging party was campaigning in the North West capital Mahikeng. Political commentators have said previously that Agang SA leader, Mamphela Ramphele, shot herself on the foot by agreeing to become the Democratic Alliance (DA)’s presidential candidate, and backing off from that decision after a short period of time.

However, party members say their party will get good results, come the general elections. What’s important is to acknowledge your mistake and correct it those are the words of Agang SA deputy secretary in North West Linkie Seepelo. Seepelo says it was not wrong to join ventures with the DA, but Agang needs to grow as a party first in order for it to achieve its objectives.

Agang says it intends fighting crime in the country, should it be voted into power. It says it will also re-enforce the South African Police Services.
