Nelspruit - Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane expressed satisfaction with the ANC manifesto on Friday night, ahead of its launch in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga.

He said the party had based the manifesto on what South Africans wanted.

"You must remember that when the ANC compiled the manifesto, we went to the people to find out from them [what they wanted] and we packaged it in a way that makes sense," he said.

Chabane was speaking to reporters before a party dinner in Nelspruit.

He said the country was facing challenges and that it was up to the African National Congress to address them.

"We face a challenge of poverty, unemployment and a slow economic growth..., therefore its important for the ANC to find ways to grow the economy," he said.

Asked to elaborate on the plans to grow the economy, Chabane said all questions would be answered after the launch.

Party heavyweights have gathered at the Church on the Hill, in Nelspruit, for the dinner, at which President Jacob Zuma will reveal the manifesto.

They include ministers Mildred Olifant, Jeff Radebe and Naledi Pandor.

ANC national executive committee member Bheki Cele refused to speak to reporters. "I'm just here for the food," he said, laughing as he walked away.

Others there were National Assembly speaker Max Sisulu, Tony Yengeni and Agriculture Minister Tina Joematt-Petterson.
