Mbombela – President Jacob Zuma says the ANC is aiming at creating at least six million jobs in the next five years.

President Jacob Zuma said on Saturday the ANC aimed at creating at least six million jobs in the next five years.

"[The] majority [of jobs] will be reserved for young people," he said.

He was speaking at the Mbombela Stadium in Mpumalanga where the party launched its 2014 election manifesto.

The stadium was packed to capacity with followers enjoying song and dance ahead of Zuma's address.

He said the African National Congress was also planning on increasing the number of training and skill centres throughout the country.

Zuma said the party would ensure the youth subsidy was effective.

"The ANC will take practical steps to ensure implementation of the youth subsidy does not replace incentivised working," he said.

He said the financial sector would be encouraged to be more inclusive and accessible.
