The African Transformation Movement (ATM) says it is confident ahead of the elections.

ATM founder and leader of the Twelve Apostles Church of Christ, the Reverend Ceaser Nongqunga, says the ATM will be the ruling party after the elections.

He was speaking at a rally in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape welcoming DA members who defected to the party. The rally attracted a full hall at Ikwezi Extension in Mthatha. Nongqunga says the party’s support base is not only in the Eastern Cape but in all nine provinces.

He adds, “One may say whatever he says but what I’m sure of by the 9th of May this year, ATM will be running the most votes ever seen in South Africa. I-ATM izawuphatha.”
