Former deputy president and speaker of the National Assembly Baleka Mbete says 30 years is not enough time to solve social ills, end poverty, provide jobs, clean drinking water, or any water at all, and deliver houses to all. 

As such, voters must give the ANC more time to deliver on promises made over three decades ago. 

Mbete is the latest senior ANC member to join the campaign trail in Gauteng in the party’s fight to retain control.
