Ramaphosa: “ANC Not Threatened By Emergence Of MK Party”

He stated, "The ANC has an overarching presence in KZN, and all other political parties that are emerging today are trying to nibble at the edges.

President Cyril Ramaphosa has stated that the African National Congress (ANC) is not threatened by the emergence of the Umkhonto weSizwe (MK) party in KwaZulu-Natal or any other party in South Africa.

Speaking in Durban on Saturday, Ramaphosa emphasized that the ANC has a strong support base across the country and will surprise many people at the polls.

Ramaphosa acknowledged that many have doubted the ANC’s ability to win with an outright majority. However, he expressed confidence in the ANC’s chances of retaining power in KZN and the Union Buildings.

The president affirmed that the ANC has built a solid support base over the years and its loyal supporters will turn out in large numbers to vote.

Despite the mobilization of party structures ahead of the elections, Ramaphosa dismissed the notion that the emergence of the MK party poses a threat to the ANC’s dominance.

He stated, “The ANC has an overarching presence in KZN, and all other political parties that are emerging today are trying to nibble at the edges. The ANC has great hegemony, and we will emerge victorious because the people of KZN and indeed South Africa love the ANC.”

Addressing the formation of the MK party, which is led by former President Jacob Zuma, Ramaphosa expressed confidence that the ANC’s strength and support in KZN will prevail. He stated, “We are going to have a clear majority. Even the recent formation of the MK party will see what the ANC is all about, even here in KZN. I have no doubt about that. Our strength and support here is strong.”
