Speaking at a campaign for the local government elections in eThekwini, KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday, Ramaphosa said the party has learnt from its mistakes.
South African president Cyril Ramaphosa has acknowledged that the ruling has made mistakes and let citizens down.
“The ANC has learnt from its mistakes,” he said. “It had shortcomings in living up to the expectations of the people of South Africa in relation to enforcing accountability.”
“We were the first to say there are mistakes we’ve made, and I have found that, when we are open and honest with our people, they actually have a very deep understanding with us.”

The president is confident that the ANC will win the eThekwini municipality and isn’t bothered by the opposition’s antics.
“The opposition has become irrelevant to us because we are focusing on our campaign. Our campaign has a clear message for the voters and they are coming out in large numbers to show support,” Ramaphosa addressed the media.
Amongst the issues raised by the community were electricity shortfalls.
During his campaign trail in the North West, Ramaphosa said there will be light at the end of the tunnel. Despite the country experiencing loadshedding yet again, Ramaphosa said he had faith in Eskom management.
