Nelspruit - ANC heavyweights arrived at the Church on the Hill in Nelspruit on Friday evening for a dinner ahead of the launch of the party's election manifesto.

At the dinner, President Jacob Zuma is expected to reveal the African National Congress's election manifesto, which will be launched at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday.

Arriving at the dinner, Labour Minister Mildred Olifant said the people of South Africa should continue to trust the ANC.

"Trust the African National Congress and continue to vote ANC, particularly workers of this country," she said.

"Looking at what the ANC has done for the workers: Yes, we still know there are challenges, but together with them we can take South Africa forward."

Touching on the youth wage subsidy, Olifant said it would start now because President Jacob Zuma had signed it and those who qualified would have to apply for it.

Presidency spokesperson and ANC stalwart Mac Maharaj, who said he was speaking as a citizen, said the party's manifesto would contain contributions from people from all walks of life.

"In the manifesto there will be views that have been culled not just from ANC members, but from non-ANC members from all walks of life.

"No other party does that, and therefore it has the potential of expressing what the overwhelming majority of South Africans want," he said.
