Johannesburg - ANC national chairperson Gwede Mantashe has cast his vote, saying the ANC has campaigned hard enough for a better life for all South Africans.
Mantsahe took to the ballot box at Freeway Park Primary School in Boksburg, in the east of Gauteng.
He took his time in the voting booth and joked that he had indeed voted “correctly”.
The minister of mineral resources said there had been a lot of progress made in the past 25 years since the first democratic elections. He boasted that many of the infrastructure improvements had been built post-1994.
“It is very important. Half of what you see in South Africa today was built in post-1994. Joburg was a small corner now it is a big city and meets with Tshwane half-way. We are not talking about this. That is why we should continue taking our people to what we call a better life for all,” he said.
