DD Mabuza expects large number will vote ANC in Mpumalanga

He was in the province on a three-day campaign.


ANC deputy president DD Mabuza expects large numbers of people will vote his party in Mpumalanga on 8 May 2019.

“It will go back to 80% or 82%. The DA might reverse,” said Mabuza.

Mabuza visited areas in Gert Sibande, eHlanzeni and Nkangala regions, promising unhappy ANC members that issues of infighting in the province would be solved. He also told potential voters that the ANC does listen to them.

He said certain mistakes were done by the party and they were apologising as ANC as “it will never happen again”.

He met with traditional leaders and engaged in door-to-door campaigns.



He said that he expects the Bushbuckridge Resident Association, a splinter group of the ANC that has various seats at the Bushbuckridge local municipality and one at the Mpumalanga legislature,  will not return after 8 May 2019.

He also added it is only the ANC that will live forever.
