African National Congress (ANC) president Cyril Ramaphosa says the party’s newly launched ‘Thuma Mina’ campaign is about working for the people and ending corruption.
Ramaphosa said the campaign is also about making sure there is proper service delivery to the people of South Africa.
“Our campaign is to say send us, we are the volunteers of the ANC. We are going to be unleashing our volunteers to serve the people of South Africa,” he said.
On Friday Ramaphosa launched the campaign in Tembisa which aims to bring back party support which it had lost during the 2016 local government elections. The campaign is aimed at addressing service delivery in communities.
Ramaphosa will visit the Tembisa Hospital, as well as old age homes before handing title deeds to some residents of Tembisa. The Tembisa hospital visit will be led by Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi.
The president told residents that the governing party wanted functioning health facilities.
“We want our hospitals to work. We are going to work like Nelson Mandela and Albertina Sisulu,”
The campaign will end off with a rally at the Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa this afternoon.
