ANC will retain 8 provinces, says Angie Motshekga

2014-04-25 11:15

ANC Women’s League president Angie Motshekga was confident that the ruling party would win eight provinces, and hoped to increase support in the Western Cape.

“There is no indication for me to doubt that we are going to take all the eight provinces [out of nine],” The Star quoted her as saying at a campaign in Polokwane yesterday.

“In the Western Cape, we are fighting. I am sure we will increase our percentages. All the [other] eight provinces, people can dream all they want, the ANC will take them all.”

Motshekga, who is also the minister of basic education, defended her department over textbook shortages.

“Why should voters not vote for us, having delivered 6m books. There is a shortage of 138 000, which we can justify?” she reportedly asked.

Judgment was reserved on Wednesday on an application by community-based organisation Basic Education for All in the high court in Pretoria to force Limpopo education authorities to deliver outstanding textbooks.
