ANC takes 2014 election campaign to DA stronghold

2013-05-24 14:00

The ANC in Gauteng will send 6?000 volunteers to Sicelo in Midvaal on Sunday to campaign for the 2014 elections.

“The volunteer campaign is aimed at mobilising residents of Midvaal to ensure that we remove the DA-controlled municipality,” provincial spokesman Dumisa Ntuli said in a statement today.

“This will be showcased by the massive group of volunteers marshalling the streets of Midvaal.”

The ANC had a “justifiable case” because the Democratic Alliance was not delivering services in Midvaal and development was non-existent.

“In Midvaal, development and service delivery is purely for white suburbs and many black areas are still neglected with no development at all,” said Ntuli.

The ANC’s provincial executive committee, led by chairman Paul Mashatile, would accompany the volunteers.

Last month the ANC in Gauteng announced its 6000-member Moses Kotane volunteer brigade.

President Jacob Zuma said at the time next year’s national elections were in the hands of the ANC’s volunteers.

He said the party did not want anything less than a two-thirds majority.
