As the final week before the election begins, political parties are stopping everything else they are doing to focus on the final push of persuading South Africans to vote for them. While the major parties DA and ANC have the struggle to find the rhythm they usually have in the previous elections it seems like they are banking on their robust cell structures.
The ANC deputy secretary-general, Jessie Duarte, has instructed candidates to meet 100 voters a day over the next seven days. She said even with the suspended secretary-general Ace Magashule the business of the party must go on with the target of garnering 11 000 000 votes nationwide.
Jessie Duarte said that leaders and candidates must make calls and send messages to undecided and reluctant voters. Our main focus should be to visit every house in all communities, especially in our base wards. On Friday, the party is planning a national Siyanqoba rally, which will be addressed by the president of the ANC, Cyril Ramaphosa.
Jessie rubbishes the suggestion that comrades will not turn up and vote for her party because of issues like corruption which has become worse under the leadership of Ramaphosa. She said that ANC is on a self-renewal phase and as such it's high time that people turn up and vote.
