ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa took his party's election campaign to the Free State on Sunday.

With only two weeks until political parties go to the polls, Ramaphosa arrived to a warm welcome in suspended secretary-general Ace Magashule's home base in Harrismith, Free State.

In May the town was brought to a halt when disgruntled residents took to the streets to demand better service delivery.
