Motlanthe lined up to vote at the plush Killarney Country Club when he addressed the media.
Motlanthe said, “The leadership of the ANC is well aware that this is the last chance. Therefore I have no doubt in my mind that soon after the elections, they will attend to all the weaknesses in the party.”
TimesLIVE also reported that Motlanthe downplayed the possibility of a coalition government should the ANC fail to attain a majority in Gauteng.
A bullish Motlanthe felt the ANC would win handsomely and deemed talk of a coalition to be futile.
