The former minister, who has led dialogue with different sectors of society across the country, said the party’s manifesto, which is set to be delivered at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, will be a “thick document” with “a lot of content”.
He claimed the party would deliver an event that made people who are part of the ANC proud of their organisation.
The ANC will then take its message to South Africans, asking them to place their trust in the party when it goes to the polls.
The party will reflect on its 25 years in power and share views of how it’s going to move the country forward.
“When you are a governing party, there are bottlenecks and challenges that you come across and then there have been difficulties that have besieged these 25 years, but over and above that there is a lot that has been done,” said Mbalula.
He said the ANC took polls seriously, even if they painted the party in a bad light.
Recent polls show growing support for the liberation movement, with an expectation that it would do well at the national elections.
“For us it is important to look at the polls, what are the issues South Africans are raising about us, from all spheres of life,” said Mbalula.
“Our attitude and approach to this campaign is we are the incumbent, it’s easier for those who are not in power to have a go at us, but over and above that we need to bring innovation, what [are] the bold steps we are bringing as a party, we know that those will deliver on them,”
