Cyril Ramaphosa, the President of the African National Congress (ANC), outlined the party’s agenda for 2024 during the annual January 8 Statement commemoration at Mbombela Stadium in Mpumalanga. Addressing challenges such as rising poverty, inequality, economic instability, and the cost of living, Ramaphosa emphasized the need for accelerated economic reconstruction to deliver quality basic services and infrastructure.

In his keynote address, Ramaphosa pledged to renew the ANC and society, combat crime and corruption, and contribute to a better Africa and world. The ANC, marking 30 years in power coinciding with the nation’s 30th anniversary of independence and democracy, aims to address key issues such as job creation, economic growth, basic service improvement, infrastructure development, load shedding, and tackling crime.

Ramaphosa expressed the party’s commitment to securing a decisive victory in the 2024 general elections. He urged ANC members to campaign tirelessly to retain power and assigned the ANC Youth League the task of mobilizing young South Africans to register to vote.

The ANC will reveal its comprehensive vision and program for the next five years and beyond when it launches its Election Manifesto next month. The Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) has scheduled the next voter registration weekend for February 3 and 4, emphasizing the importance of mobilizing all South Africans, particularly the youth, to register and exercise their right to shape the country’s future.
