ancBusinessLive reports that ANC treasurer-general Paul Mashatile said on Wednesday that the ANC’s election manifesto would provide solutions to solving unemployment, which the governing party had identified as the biggest problem facing South Africans.  

Campaigning in Durban, Mashatile said the majority of people that ANC leaders had met complained about joblessness.  He was trying to encourage people to attend the ANC’s manifesto launch on Saturday at the Moses Mabhida stadium in Durban.  Mashatile also said the ANC realised that a positive election outcome was possible only if the party was united and that division in an election year was “not an option”.  He conceded that there were pockets of division in some parts, but he said people were largely committed to working against a dip in support for the party.
