Johannesburg - 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, The Star reported on Friday.

"There is no indication for me to doubt that we are going to take all the eight provinces [out of nine]," she was quoted as saying at a campaign in Polokwane on Thursday.

"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."

Textbook shortages

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

"Why should voters not vote for us, having delivered six million books and 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 North Gauteng High Court to force Limpopo education authorities to deliver outstanding textbooks.
