The African National Congress (ANC) wants 30 more decades to fix the country and deliver its promises.

Deputy President Paul passionately appealed to the citizens, saying they needed more time to build houses, create job opportunities, enhance infrastructure, and ensure comprehensive service delivery.

However, Mzansi says the last 30 years were enough and called for change.

South Africans are already fed up

Mashatile said three more decades were needed to complete the party's longstanding goals.

Mashatile appeals to the community

Speaking to the Kanana community in Hammanskraal, north of Pretoria, on Tuesday, Mashatile emphasised the significant progress made since the ANC came to power in 1994 while acknowledging the continued challenges faced by many South Africans.

See the post below:

“When elected to power in 1994, we promised a better life for all. Some are still unemployed and some still struggle to take their children to schools. We want to reach everybody.
"So, we need another 30 years of leading this country to a better life. We have worked hard for the last few years, but we need more time, and we can only achieve this through your votes.”

Continued campaign trails ahead of elections

According to IOL, Mashatile's visit to Hammanskraal is part of the ANC’s intensified campaign efforts ahead of the national and provincial General Election 2024 on 29 May.
