Motion without Notice by Honourable Siphiwo Sam Mazosiwe on the launch of the ANC Election Manifesto

1 March 2011

Chairperson, I hereby give notice that at the next sitting of the Council, I shall move:

That the Council-

Notes that the ANC, umbutho wabantu [the people`s party], launched its election manifesto for the upcoming local government elections at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace in Rustenburg on Sunday, 27 February 2011;

Further notes that in a demonstration of confidence in the ANC and a firm declaration that the ANC remains the only viable vehicle in the struggle to fundamentally transform South African society, the people of North West came out in great numbers from across the length and breadth of the province to fill the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace to capacity, chanting freedom songs reminiscent of their yearning for yet another ANC victory, as our nation faces the third national local government elections; and

Takes this opportunity to thank the people of Mafikeng and the millions who watched the ANC across South Africa and calls on them once more to vote for the ANC and its candidates in the upcoming local government elections in order to continue on our national path to developing and dismantling the long years of apartheid in our society.
