South Africans will be going to the polls next year.

ANC elections head Fikile Mbalula says the party will consult countrywide on its draft manifesto, with a final document to be revealed in January during the party’s birthday celebrations.

Mbalula says this will give ordinary people the opportunity to provide input and do away with the perception that the party has become arrogant.

“We are under no illusion that leadership and public trust must be earned through conduct, listening, responding and hard work in order to champion the realisation the aspiration of the people,” says Mbalula.

He admits the party has previously failed the very who voted the ANC into power.

Mbalula adds corruption has weakened the party’s ability to deliver services to the citizen of the country.

“The road ahead will not be easy, the renewal will at times pose challenges and there will be resistance to the fight against corruption.”
