President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday told party faithfuls his administration promised to be more proactive and to listen more when residents raised their concerns about the slow pace of service delivery.
Ramaphosa was speaking during this weekend’s voter registration drive in Tshwane in the course of the ANC’s 2019 election campaign.
The president said, to show how serious his administration was about addressing concerns about service delivery, Gauteng Premier David Makhura would visit Olievenhoutbosch on Thursday to listen to residents’ concerns and give an update on what the provincial government is doing.
“As the ANC, we are willing to address whatever challenge that is faced by our people. Where we won’t be able to come up with solutions, we will say so,” Ramaphosa said.
He said the ANC leadership knew what people wanted and they were going to be listening more and communicating more with communities.
“What I can tell you is that there is no problem without a solution and we will come up with a solution. Wherever there are problems, we are going to address them swiftly and immediately.”
