ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa spoke at the ANC's Progressive Business Forum's Presidential Gala Dinner in Midrand, Johannesburg. He talked about the upcoming elections and the different topics related to them.

According to the SABC, the event, attended by ministers, business figures and artists, provided a platform for Ramaphosa to share his perspective on the country's democratic process.

Ramaphosa said:

“As a robust democracy, our election is accompanied by noise, many voices and views, as it should be, and many choices. We should welcome this, and it should never dishearten us because we are a democracy that is robust and that has proven itself over the past 30 years.
"It is a democracy steeped in the will of the people of South Africa. But if one looks beyond the noise and the rhetoric, what stands out is the ANC's vision, dedication, and capabilities."
