African National Congress (ANC) President Cyril Ramaphosa has received a warm welcome in Umbumbulu south of Durban.

He was at the Nkangala sports ground as part of his two-day election campaign in KwaZulu-Natal.

Ramaphosa addressing ANC supporters in Umbumbulu:

Accompanied by provincial ANC chairperson Sihle Zikalala, Ramaphosa says people still believe in the ruling party.

He says the party is hopeful that they will retain the eThekwini metro in the upcoming local government election. Ramaphosa further says that while some may believe the ANC is on the verge of collapse, the party will prove them wrong by emerging stronger after the elections.

Ramaphosa says the party has chosen councillors who will put the needs of people first. South Africans go to the polls in local government elections on the first of November.

Ramaphosa committed the party to root out corruption.

Ramaphosa also said the ANC does not want people who are looking after their own interests but people who will put service delivery first.
