Vote first, then we'll sort out the problems - Zuma

2011-04-30 14:36

Cape Town - The only way to solve the problems of housing and poverty in Cape Town is to vote for the ANC, party president Jacob Zuma told people in Gugulethu on Saturday.

Zuma visited the Kick hostel where hundreds of people lined the narrow and muddy streets to hear what he had to say during his campaign ahead of the May 18 local government election.

One little girl carried a poster saying "we want solutions, no more explanations".

Zuma said while he was aware of the problems, the ANC could not do anything because the city was under the wrong leadership.

"The only way to sort out the problems is to vote for the ANC."

He said the policy of the ANC was to change the lives of the people, but that could not be done in Cape Town unless the ANC was in power.

Zuma said the Cape Town municipality, under the DA, did not care for poor people.

Loud cheers and applause drowned out Zuma as he tried to further address the people.

"All of us must go and vote for the ANC. Lets vote and after that sort out all the problems," Zuma said.

He was accompanied by ANC's Cape Town mayoral candidate, Tony Ehrenreich.

They sang umshini wam' and then left in a black Mercedes Benz followed by police in vans and Caspers.
