Do not rest on your laurels ahead of the 2014 general elections, ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa told hundreds of party revellers at the Galeshewe Stadium in Kimberley.

“It going to take a real push from us to achieve a majority,” Ramaphosa told a sea of supporters, clad in yellow.

Earlier, he told the crowd the coming elections would be critical for the ANC government.

Speaking at the party’s manifesto launch in the Northern Cape, Ramaphosa told the crowd no other country took better care of its people than the ANC government.

“No other government had the courage to bring a university here,” Ramaphosa said, to applause from the crowd.

He said the future ANC government would focus on education in the next five years.

“The ANC has something coming for the youth.”

He promised that the party would focus on the Northern Cape, with heavy investment in infrastructure in the future.

“We will focus on the Northern Cape … so that people can get jobs.”

Ramaphosa said the future ANC government would make sure national government helped provincial and local governments with their problems.
