ANC wins ward 14 by-elections

B Mabasa

House Chairperson. Yesterday, that is Wednesday 28 February, people of Ward 14 in Soweto emerged victorious in their bi-election in the Ward. The by-election came as a result of the passing on of the former ANC Ward Councillor, Cde Jabu Khanyile (May his soul rest in peace). The African National Congress is humbled by the trust, the confidence and the love which the people of Soweto have shown to the ANC in retaining ward 14. The people have spoken, they are saying the ANC leaves, the ANC leads. This shows the continued confidence in the ANC and its programme of fundamental socio-economic transformation.

As the ANC we wish to thank all the voters who turned out to vote in Ward 14 by-election. As the ANC we will do everything possible to ensure that the city of Johannesburg Municipality delivers much needed services to the community. To my fellow cdes in Joburg, people have given us clear orders that we continue with our mandate to build a non-racial and non-sexist society, we dare not to fail them. To the newly elected councilor Cde Makapane Mokwena, people of Ward 14 are sending you, I hope nawe uyavuma uthi "Thuma mina",

I thank you
