The African National Congress's top brass were out on the campaign trail in Cape Town on Saturday.

The big wigs visited their former stronghold Dullah Omar which they lost in the last election.

Secretary General Gwede Mantashe urged the community to vote for the party to reclaim the area.

Mantashe allegedly accused the DA run municipality of not taking care of black townships. He said things in the province haven't changed much since the dawn of democracy.

Despite failing to launch a provincial election manifesto, the party said it has plans to address the community's concerns.

Meanwhile, the ANC has strongly warned its candidates that they will be removed from being party councillors if they relocate from their wards after being elect.

This weekend the ANC deployed its heavy weights including the Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa and the Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan to KwaZulu-Natal to garner support ahead of the August 3rd municipal elections.

Speaking to thousands of party supporters in KwaZulu-Natal, the ANC provincial chairperson Sihle Zikalala said party councillors who were considering relocating from areas where they were elected should think twice.
