'I think the ANC pre and post Nasrec is qualitatively different'

The African National Congress' head of elections Fikile Mbalula on Monday, announced Former Western Cape Premier Ebrahim Rasool party's provincial head of elections.

This forms part of the ANC's bid to reclaim the Western Cape after almost a decade of DA leadership.

Karima Brown spoke to ANC Western Cape provincial secretary, Faiez Jacobs to find out how exactly the party intends to reassert it's place in the province and win the votes of of both black and coloured residents.

I think the ANC pre and post Nasrec is qualitatively different and I think we continue with the theme of renewal and unity.

Faiez Jacobs, ANC Western Cape provincial secretary

I think we are cleaning up the organisation and making the ANC more true to its original basis of non-racialism and focusing on creating a space and place for all of our people. How we build solidarity amongst the poor has always been the key focus for us.

Faiez Jacobs, ANC Western Cape provincial secretary

When the ANC was in government we did not put Africans and Coloureds against each other. I think Ebrahim has the skill, ability and he can mobilise in all those communities.
