Pretoria - Gauteng province is going to remain in the grasp of the ANC, President Jacob Zuma said on Friday.

“Those who say Gauteng is going to be taken by some other party are dreaming,” he said.

Zuma was addressing hundreds of supporters in Ga-Rankuwa, Pretoria following door-to-door campaigning.

He told them May 7 was the day the party would show its power.

He said the party was a cut above the rest and the only movement to successully have brought the end to apartheid.

“ANC [African National Congress] is different from other parties. We are powerful. It was only us who could defeat apartheid. It's only us who can make SA a better place,” he said.

Zuma said the ANC was the only party that could change the quality of life for the people of SA.

“We have a plan to change the quality of life of our people. No one has a plan except us therefore we deserve a two-thirds majority,” he said.
