In his opening address at a media briefing held by the Congress of the People (COPE) today, former ANC member Leonard Ramatlakane revealed statistics of how many South Africans have joined COPE. According to Ramatlakane, so far, 32 000 people from the Western Cape, 64 000 in the North West and 70 000 people in the Free State have signed membership forms to join the party.

“They see a future. They see a future of black and white having a room under one organisation called the congress of the people. They say that this is the future they have been waiting for. That future has arrived and they need to grab that future,” said Ramatlakane.

Ramatlakane added that an additional 30 000 application forms were dropped off in the Cape Flats, as requested. He says that he is confident with the party’s progress thus far but added that it is still growing.
