As election day approaches, ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa warns that the country might worsen if the ANC loses power. Speaking in Mbombela, he emphasised the potential consequences, stating that crucial programs like the National Student Financial Aid Scheme and social grants could be eliminated if the ANC fails to secure the majority vote.

"Our policies prioritise the welfare of the underprivileged. I am not aware of any other country on the continent that has dedicated itself to providing grants to 18 million individuals, encompassing both the young and old, along with an extra 10 million recipients receiving grants of R350."
