In other political news, Briefly News previously reported that with the municipal elections merely a week away, President Cyril Ramaphosa has been going all around Johannesburg, Gauteng canvassing for votes for the ruling party.

On Monday, Ramaphosa campaigned in Orange Farm and Soweto and asked residents to vote for the ANC. Ramaphosa began his Joburg campaign trail in Orange Farm and then went to visit Meadowlands, Soweto and Diepkloof.

He asked voters to give the ruling party a second chance and stated the ANC is a political organisation that is self-renewing, according to News24. However, residents were not pleased with the ANC and brought up issues of employment, housing and electricity.
