Ramaphosa made the comment during the launch of the party's election manifesto at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban yesterday.

Thousands of supporters packed into the stadium for the event, which signalled a gear shift in campaigning ahead of the upcoming polls.

The President used the platform to urge all South Africans to leave their mark and ensure they are registered to vote.

Ramaphosa also touched on the controversial land issue during his speech. He said the party plans to accelerate land reform in the country.

The President outlined a number of measures that will be used to speed up land reform -- including, where appropriate, expropriation without compensation.

The Moses Mabhida Stadium was a sea of yellow on Saturday. The manifesto launch followed a week of engagements, campaigning and celebrations in the province, with the ruling party marking its 107th anniversary in Indanda, north of Durban on Tuesday.
