The African National Congress (ANC) has promised to create more than 270,000 jobs per year if re-elected this year. The party presented its election manifesto this weekend at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in KwaZulu-Natal. ANC says economic growth and job creation is at the center of its election manifesto.
The party made a number of promises, including setting up a small business support fund, data cost reduction, and introducing the second phase of free education.
President Cyril Ramaphosa states the ANC government will focus on job creation and economic development. “According to our estimates, when we fulfil all these commitments and measures, we will be able to create up to 275,000 additional jobs every year.”
The president also urged South Africans to trust and give the ANC another chance to rule for the next five years, saying that the party had learned from its mistakes.
