Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa says members of the African National Congress who intimidate and attack rivals from opposition parties, when they campaign, are embarrassing the ruling party.

With less than 20 days left before the local government elections, parties have entered the final phase of campaigning.

The Economic Freedom Fighters and the Democratic Alliance say the ANC hasn't made it easy for them to campaign this year.

While the ruling party’s head of elections, Nomvula Mokonyane, says the parties have brought this trouble upon themselves, by disrespecting local authorities where they campaign.

Ramaphosa says ANC members who participate in acts of intimidation must simply be disciplined.
