Moses Mabhida stadium in Durban, KwaZulu Natal was packed to capacity today as the ANC launched its Mayihlome rally election manifesto ahead of the 29 May general elections. Addressing thousands of party supporters, party supporters Cyril Ramaphosa continued with the promises he made during the January 8 statement in Mbombela.


The ANC's election theme for this year's election is "Let's work together to do more" The Moses Mabhida stadium with a capacity of 56 000 seats has been the preferred venue for manifesto launch for most political parties. Two weekends ago, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) held it party's Manifesto and the venue followed by Inkatha Freedom Party which boost a big following in the province which hosted their party manifesto last weekend. Addressing the rally, Ramaphosa said: "The lives of many South Africans have improved. There are many Tintswalos, everywhere I go, I meet a lot of Tintswalos. Others say I am Tintswalo's father; others say I am Tintswalo's aunt. Even the opposition, though they don't like the concept of Tintswalo because they have Tintswalos in their families," Ramaphosa said the ANC has learnt from their mistakes and their experience.


Ramaphosa said the ANC is the only party to govern South Africa "We were led by giants. Over the next five years we must continue to promote the rights of all South Africans against racism, homophobia, sexism, among others. We will continue to ensure that South Africans live long and regardless of their income, receive quality health service," said Ramaphosa. Taking at a swipe at former ANC members who left the party hose ANC members who are divorcing the party, Ramaphosa said that there is no space for factionalism. "There is no place for those who are factional. They don't belong here in the ANC. They are removing themselves from the ANC. The ANC will make sure it's represented by the "finest leadership," he said.


In the 56-page manifesto document, the ANC has promised voters 2.5 million jobs in the next five years and to increase the R350 social relief from distress grant for unemployed people." We will build our industries to achieve an inclusive economy. To deepen the transformation of our economy, the ANC will drive industrial growth, innovation and job creation," Ramaphosa said. He added: "We will advance industrialisation with active support for localisation and labour intensive industries. This includes protecting strategic industries like steel and advance industries of the future,". The ANC also promised to expand black industrialist programme to reach 2000 beneficiaries in the next five years. "The ANC remains committed and resolute to pursue the transformation agenda in order to build a better life for all, leaving no one behind," Ramaphosa added.
