People have confidence in the ANC – Zweli Mkhize

2014-04-16 13:43

South Africans have confidence in the African National Congress, party treasurer-general Zweli Mkhize has said.

“There is a huge demand, as we campaign, from people who want to identify with the ANC,” he said while campaigning in Freedom Park, Soweto, for the general elections.

“People trust the ANC and have confidence in it.”

Mkhize welcomed a former Democratic Alliance councillor who defected to the ANC. Solani Gudluza said he had been a DA member since 1999 and was tired of the party.

“I am a hard worker, but the DA persecutes you for that ... you are never rewarded,” Gudluza told reporters.

Mkhize said the ANC had campaigned and informed people about its own work.

“Unlike other parties, we don’t talk about other political parties, we talk about the work of this administration. Other parties just attack the ANC.”
