Vote for ANC, sort out candidate problems later: Zuma

President Jacob Zuma told unhappy ANC members during an election drive in Bloemfontein on Thursday to “vote for the ANC and we will sort out the candidate lists later”.

Zuma was visiting the Khayelitsha informal settlement near Grasslands in Bloemfontein when local residents handed a memorandum to him containing their grievances.

He urged the gathering from the inside of an ANC election truck to be disciplined.

He told the cheering crowd the ANC would investigate the unhappiness regarding the election candidates lists and would come back to them after the elections.

Local residents were also unhappy about stands for houses in the area.

Thabo Ramolahloane said the council must make a plan for “pens” (stands), roads and electricity in the area.

“They must stop their propaganda, the ANC. Enough is enough.”

He said councillors had visited them during 2010 and made many promises which never materialised.

Elias Qokoza said he wanted a job. He criticised the council for using people outside his ward area to do work inside the ward.

“Hier is niks werk (there are no jobs here).”

Tshepo Sehloho was very critical of the ANC’s visit to the area.

“They want our vote but we will not see them again afterwards,” he said.
