Only voters can say ANC has problem - Ramaphosa

2014-04-20 21:54
Johannesburg - ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday down-played problems that have engulfed the party and said only voters can say there is a problem.

"The people of this country will be the final arbiters of the ANC when they vote," he said.

"What people say outside is just speculation but they [voters] will say how they love this party [through their votes]."

Ramaphosa was speaking to the media on the sidelines of a church service at the Tyrannus Apostolic Church in De Deur.

Leaders from the ANC, DA, Cope and many others braced the scorching heat with thousands of church goers for the Easter Sunday service.

He said the reception the party was getting during campaigning had been warm and it was confident of victory.

He threw cold water over the "no vote" campaign headed by former intelligence minister Ronnie Kasrils, who is discouraging people to vote for the ANC.

He said those advocating for the campaign had defied themselves outside the ANC and would not see any success.

"Our message won't be diverted by angry people. I don't think their campaign will take off. What they are doing will encourage more people to vote for the ANC," he said.

Ramaphosa said the party would emerge even stronger after the elections as they had done over the years.
