According to Cyril Ramaphosa, the president told residents from Tekwane in Mpumalanga on Sunday that his group and he are not awesome, but he would take good care of their interests if asked. "As your leader, you can point your finger at me and reprimand me. That is your right, Ramaphosa said.
In the lead up to the 2021 nearby government elections on November 1, the ANC president met with a number of residents to enlist them as citizens. Under Ramaphosa's leadership, the ANC went on Saturday to visit the Nomzamo informal settlement in Soweto, Chiawelo, and Naledi, where occupants complained about being without power.
The different networks' reactions to Ramaphosa and his party have been mixed. While some invited him to make promises, other networks showed him the middle finger. The Tekwane community greeted Ramaphosa with a warm welcome on Sunday.
A few residents speaking on behalf of Ramaphosa spoke to the president after he was shown an imploding scaffold that should have been repaired. Ramaphosa was sought out by an understudy complaining about the termination of a leadership program.
In light of the two leaders here from the party and from the public authority, this matter will receive attention, and at the very least, I will make sure it is handled appropriately since as a resident and a youth you have the right to expect it to be handled in an appropriate fashion
On Saturday, residents in Soweto's Nomzamo municipality scolded Cyril Ramaphosa and his party for their behavior, saying they were treated with contempt by their leadership. Ramaphosa was informed by another resident of Tekwane South that a dangerous street needed to be cleared.
The street is constantly broken and people have respiratory illnesses, our kids are debilitated. If it's not too much trouble, can the councilors fix this street and install channels. We look forward to working with you. Please ensure us that you will take care of this matter."
The president responded that he agreed with the request that the streets must be cleared, and that this is a duty he must fulfill for the entire nation. The government does set aside time now and then, and that's how governments work.
They move slowly, but we are attempting to decrease the aggravation with our proposals. But this is a mindful government that is looking forward to resolving the numerous issues." In many places, Ramaphosa said, people are caught for reprimanding their rulers, but SA was different.
The president is even permitted to censure you. In an impending election, he urged the locals to vote by enrolling and casting ballots. As it turns out, you have not gone out there to harm or destroy anything. Here, you have exercised your other right, which is to gripe, fight -- and your banners are displaying your disappointment and distress.
So your protest has been registered and will be addressed accordingly." Ramaphosa: 'I will not lose control of the ANC'. As reported by the Times on Saturday, President Cyril Ramaphosa said he accepts the ANC and neighborhood councils will join together and merge.
In his opinion, the right to vote is one of the basic freedoms that should be negotiated. Additionally, we are a listening government and it is focused on addressing and solving the issues that we face in the country. Our administration is looking and addressing these problems in this country. It is a listening government."
