Mkhize: ANC set for 'overwhelming victory'

Johannesburg - The ANC is confident of winning the May 7 general election, ANC treasurer general Zweli Mkhize said on Saturday.

"The ANC is poised for an overwhelming victory," he said during an election campaign in Khosi Bay, in northern KwaZulu-Natal.

ANC spokesperson Bongani Tembe said the party had been carrying out its own snap surveys since the start of their election trail last year, and their results show the ANC will win.

"The majority of people say they will vote for the ANC. When we do door-to-door visits, we asked whether they will vote for the ANC."

The party takes down complaints, and tells residents about the ANC's future plans.

"Our election campaign throughout the country has reached a very high gear, and we are now consolidating our support and reminding people to go and vote," said Tembe.

Mkhize on Saturday addressed traditional leaders, teachers and nurses, and visited shopping centres as part of its door-to-door effort.

"The people we interact with do not raise the issue of the Nkandla report. All they say is that they want service delivery and tell us of their problems," said Tembe.

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela found that President Jacob Zuma improperly benefitted from security upgrades worth R246m to his Nkandla homestead which included a swimming pool, an amphitheatre and a cattle kraal. Zuma said he will not repay the money because he did not ask for the upgrades.
