The African National Congress
in the Western Cape has postponed its manifesto launch at the very last minute.
ANC deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa was meant
to launch the manifesto on Sunday in Khayelitsha, Cape Town.
But this afternoon, with guest tags already
printed, and after hours of blitz events at various public transport stations,
the party was forced to postpone due to Ramaphosa’s sudden
Provincial Executive Committee spokesperson
Jabu Mfusi said the party had received a call today from the national office,
informing them of the postponement.
On Saturday, the deputy
president was supposed to do door-to-door campaigns in Mitchells Plain, as well
as address a dinner, costing R1 000 a person.
Spokesperson Yonela Diko said all events had
been postponed, as the entire weekend had revolved around Ramaphosa.
