Our people still love the ANC and we must honour their love and loyalty with improved service delivery, ANC Women’s League deputy president Sisi Ntombela said on Wednesday.
Casting her vote in her birthplace, Tweeling a small town situated 22 km from Frankfort in the Free State, Ntombela said the ANC remains the only hope for the people of South Africa.
“The ANC continues to be the only hope for our people and therefore that hope must never be taken for granted,” she said.
She noted the party would continue to work hard towards changing the face of the province if retained to power.
The full results of Wednesday’s national and provincial elections are expected by end of the day tomorrow (Sat) and the ANC has indicated that it is confident of victory.
“We’re hoping for a very solid victory for the ANC. The ANC must get a majority so that it continues to rule, govern our country, implement its policies as well as election manifesto.”
Ntombela said one of the priorities for an ANC government would be to grow the economy by creating job opportunities for the people, particularly the young.
“We’re definitely going to turn around the economic outlook of our province,” she said emphatically.
“We want our people to have trust in the ANC and the ANC must also be able to help them by getting competent leadership that must be able to effectively deliver on the party’s election manifesto,” she said.
She added an ANC government would continue to communicate with the masses more frequently about government plans to address the challenges they are facing.
“One of the mistakes we’ve made is that sometimes we don’t communicate ANC’s plans to address challenges facing our people as the ruling party in charge of government,” pointed out Ntombela.
“Our manifesto is comprehensive and it’s thorough. Our duty is to further develop the work done by the government since 1994.”
The ANCWL deputy president said a new ANC government will also prioritise rural development, education, and quality healthcare.
