Azanian People’s Organisation (AZAPO) president Strike Thokoane did not attend the launch of the party’s election manifesto at Ga-Phaahla outside Jane Furse in Limpopo because he’s been admitted to hospital.

The details of his condition have not been disclosed. The party’s honorary president Professor Mosebudi Mangena is standing in for Thokoane.

Provincial chairperson Ngoako Moyaha says they are launching AZAPO’s manifesto under the theme “Take back your power”.

“Once the voter understand the power, the elected candidate will respect the voter because the voter can immediately recall him if he is not delivery according to the community he is serving. Our manifesto is accordingly launched by our president Ntate Strike Thokoane but we got a message very late in the evening that he got health issues that are urgent. As we talk now he is not well and we wish him a speedy recovery,” says Moyaha.
