Eyewitness News senior reporter Theto Mahlakoana gives an update from the ANC community drives in the Northen Cape.

The African National Congress (ANC) is in its final community drive in various places across the Northen Cape in preparation for tomorrow's 108th birthday celebrations.

Residents have been interacting with party officials and expressing their concerns over service delivery issues in their communities.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to deliver the January 8 speech during the rally in Kimberley.

Bongani Bingwa speaks to Eyewitness News senior reporter Theto Mahlakoana who is covering the story from the Northern Cape.

RELATED: ANC is a disaster and a liability to South Africa - Prince Mashele

This is one of the most neglected provinces in the country and the kind of service delivery backlog that is being experienced here is making it hard for the ANC to pull out its big machinery as they normally do.

Theto Mahlakoana, Senior reporter - Eyewitness News

There is the reality of the local government elections that are coming up and I think that is a more critical issue for the ANC given the state in which this province is.

Theto Mahlakoana, Senior reporter - Eyewitness News

Not only that but the kind of sentiments by ordinary members of the public that are having a first-time opportunity to interact with some ministers and the president. Some are saying they are tired of the party and the empty promises.
