In his preview of the manifesto on Friday night, President Cyril Ramaphosa said fighting corruption would be one of the party’s priorities.
“The manifesto, as you will see when you finally get a copy of it online, will also outline how we will step up the fight against corruption throughout society and safeguard the integrity of the state.
He says that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been progress in government over the last 25 years.
“The judiciary, chapter nine institutions, our central bank, a free press, the existence of non-governmental organisations, for example, a free and strong trade union movement and many others. All these institutions that underpin our democracy, we can safely say today, they are in place, they are durable.”
