ANC BOKONE BOPHIRIMA THANKS THE PEOPLE OF BOKONE BOPHIRIMA


The African National Congress (ANC) in Bokone Bophirima would like to take this opportunity to express its humble gratitude that the party has retained governance of all municipalities in the province, as we said in the beginning of the elections programme for the 2016 Local Government Elections.

This could not have been possible without the solid support of all voters in the province and ANC supporters. Despite the many choices of political parties - which came to them with a range of overly ambitious, but unrealistic promises - our people still opted to listen to the movement of Oliver Tambo, Walter Sisulu and Nelson Mandela. We would like to thank all ANC volunteers who worked very hard to contribute to this victory.

We understand, as the ANC, that the best way to thank both the voters and our volunteers is through fast tracking service delivery. Our people have grown impatient with the pace of delivery, rightfully so, and we undertake to speed up the process as much as we can.

It is an undisputable fact that for the past 22 years the ANC has delivered decently to the people of Bokone Bophirima province. In the face of the huge challenges that form part of the legacy of apartheid government that served only the minority in the country, the ANC Government has registered great strides in improving the lives of our people.

In the same breath the ANC would like to applaud the Bokone Bophirima Provincial Government for adopting a more radical approach to bettering our people's lives. The five concretes adopted by the provincial government assisted the ANC in acquiring this election victory. During door-to-door visits, voters expressed delight at this radical and more direct approach to the triple challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment, with a more bias to the Villages, Townships and Small Dorpies (VTSD) one.

This is a remarkable achievement considering the unfolding dynamics across the country. We do however acknowledge that we did not do as well as we intended to. Low voter turnout in local government elections, which has been a trend across the country, contributed to this. We also saw our mistakes as we embarked on election performance assessment with our branches and we have identified what needs to be improved. Going forward we'll work harder to retain the confidence that our people have in their movement, the ANC.

Following the municipal council sittings that took place from the 17th to the 19th of August 2016 the ANC managed to secure all troikas of leadership in all the province's municipalities.

We expect all our deployed councillors to implement the ANC's manifesto and put the interests of our communities above everything else. The ANC Government will offer all the necessary support to ensure that this goal is achieved. We are also prepared to work with any political party represented in our province's municipal councils to serve the people of Bokone Bophirima.

The following comrades were deployed by the ANC to serve as troikas in all the municipalities:
