President Cyril Ramaphosa took his last ANC campaign train on Friday, visiting some of the biggest townships in Cape Town. He visited, among others, Gugulethu, Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain, which is a DA stronghold. He said a huge voter turnout by ANC voters was required to oust the DA.
The head of Ramaphosa's office at Luthuli House, Zizi Kodwa, said it was clear the DA was in panic mode about the Western Cape.
"We've closed the gap in the Western Cape. As we speak now, it's neck and neck. All that's important is that we must work hard in terms of our people to come out, so the turnout of that particular day [Wednesday] is very important.
"Because what the DA has done, if you look around, they've relied on the issue of corruption to project themselves as alternative to the ANC," said Kodwa.
"We're no longer talking about corruption, we're dealing with corruption and they identified corruption with a certain individual in the ANC. Those two are no longer the issue, so they've become irrelevant. They've opted [for] fear-mongering," said Kodwa, in reference to DA posters calling for the ANC and EFF to be kept out of power in the Western Cape.
