African National Congress (ANC) President Cyril Ramaphosa says councillors charged with corruption will be subjected to the step-aside rule.
Ramaphosa says the days of laziness and dividing the ANC are over. He was wrapping up his local government elections campaign in Limpopo.
Ramaphosa wraps Limpopo campaign:
“The disciplinary process or step aside, that is the only way because we are correcting the ANC. We want an ANC that is renewed, that is going back to the values of the founding fathers and founding mothers of the ANC.
Some residents confident of an ANC win
Some residents at Ward 13 in Seshego in Polokwane in Limpopo, where Ramaphosa was campaigning, are optimistic that the party will win the ward back.
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) won the ward in the 2016 local government elections.
A group of ANC supporters gathered near Nelson Mandela Drive waiting to be addressed by Ramaphosa.
This is what some party supporters in Seshego said.
“I believe we will win, the ANC worked for me because I am a proud owner of a house, we will win and we are happy they have extended the R350 grants. I am from extension 76, I believe and trust that the ANC will win the ward back
