African National Congress (ANC) National Executive Committee (NEC) member Jackson Mthembu says economic transformation is expected to be a critical component of ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa’s election manifesto launch.

Ramaphosa is due to deliver the party’s manifesto in Durban on Saturday morning at the Moses Mabhida stadium, which is filled up with thousands of party supporters.

Speaking from the stadium Mthembu said it is critical for black business to grow South Africa’s economy.

Mthembu said, “Let’s ensure that all young people are employable and have got employment opportunities, because if you don’t grow the levels of the GDP you will not be able to do anything, you won’t be able to do any jobs you won’t be able to ensure that business people, black business people are participating in the economy of the country.”
