“These are those ANC voters when they get into the voting booth vote for their movement.”
“Once an ANC!! Always an ANC!! I am born an ANC. I don't need a card to be an ANC member. My blood is Green, Black and Gold."
“They buy them, we will act like we don't see them.”
“ANC rules, people must stop pretending. The ANC needs to just work seriously on its poverty alleviation programme. People pretend to have moved on to alleviate poverty by joining other movements.”
“Fix you killed me.”
“How do you people find Mbalula funny? I want to understand.”
"Ska la tshega maan, le tshegang?”
“That one will vote ANC, no ways she will change.”

In a previous post, Briefly News ran a story that the African National Congress held a press conference on Thursday to let their South Africans know what local government election campaign plans are.
The ruling party is a bit behind on the campaign trail, the other opposition parties already rallying voters in various communities all over the country.
Fikile Mbalula, the ANC's Head of Elections, argued that despite what people might think, the ruling party actually started campaigning for elections a while ago, according to News24.
