Nelspruit - The ANC manifesto will tell South Africans exactly who to vote for, President Jacob Zuma said on Friday.

"It's a wonderful manifesto," Zuma told party heavyweights and supporters at an African National Congress dinner in Nelspruit, ahead of the official launch of the manifesto at Mbombela Stadium on Saturday.

"We are asking people to come out and vote. It is their hard won vote, and of course tomorrow [Saturday] we are telling them exactly who to vote for, because we believe very strongly that the ANC is the organisation of the people," he said.

Zuma, who is also ANC president, gave a short description of what could be expected from this year's manifesto, which was dedicated to former president Nelson Mandela, who died in December.

"Our manifesto says many things.... We present our vision in it. We present our key commitment to move South Africa forward and it goes into detail," he said.

The manifesto would look at the country's 20 years of democracy, but also at what the party had done in the past five years.

It looked at policies and plans which had helped the country. It also dealt with the National Development Plan, rural development, job creation and the economy, food security, health and education and crime and corruption, said Zuma.

He told the audience to support the ANC.

"The ANC needs your support, you have a duty to support the ANC.... You will be making a wise investment."

The ANC had been getting better governing since the dawn of democracy, Zuma said.
