The African National Congress’ (ANC) President, Cyril Ramaphosa, is expected to visit several areas in the Western Cape on Thursday as part of the party’s campaign for the upcoming Local Government Elections.

Ramaphosa will first visit Mamre, near Atlantis.

He will then proceed to Mfuleni where he will interact with residents before moving to Khayelitsha for a community meeting.

The ANC’s provincial Head of Communications, Sifiso Mtsweni, says Ramaphosa is also expected to visit Rylands Estate which will be his last stop for the day.

He says, “The President’s day is to shore up ANC support and encourage voters to give their votes to the ANC in the next coming days. We will end our programmes in Rylands, close to Athlone in Cape Town. We are inviting everybody to join us as we ensure that we intensify our campaign and ensure that we deliver a decisive victory for the African National Congress.”

Over the weekend, Ramaphosa led the party’s campaign trail to the crisis-torn Maluti-A-Phofung Municipality in Harrismith, in the Free State.

He said his party will win the embattled Maluti-A-Phofung Municipality.

Ramaphosa said municipal officials should understand that basic services such as water and sanitation are a basic right of every resident.
