He spoke at a mini-rally in Lichtenburg in the northwest, where by-elections will be held to appoint a new council.

The ANC-led Ditsabotla Local Municipality was disbanded by parliament after massive maladministration.

Ramaphosa’s main message was reflected in the vest he wore – which read unite, restore and renew.

Hundreds of people in the village of Bodibe greeted Ramaphosa with loud shouts and wails.

Ramaphosa used the rally to introduce new ANC candidates – who he said would address many of the community’s service delivery challenges.

“When I was driving here in the car, I saw a lot of potholes and I was told that the president is being repaired just because you are driving,” he said.

He is also expected to interact with business stakeholders and ANC branches in the area.

Meanwhile, the chief of Bodibe village in the North West expressed his concern and dismay to Ramaphosa that mining companies are not fulfilling their social responsibility to the community.

ANC Provincial Executive Member – Molefe Morutse said the meeting is also an opportunity for traditional leaders to express their concerns to the President.

Moruce said Chief Victor had raised concerns about a multinational cement company reneging on its promise to build a multi-purpose center in the village.

“I think Kgosi wants to interact with the president so that the president will involve Lafarge in solving the problems we have. You can see that we have the framework that Lafarge had to complete. The office was supposed to be on this side, but now we don’t even have a village,” he said.
