President Cyril Ramaphosa has defended his Sunday address to the nation, saying he was closing off the sixth administration and providing an update on the state of readiness for today’s elections.

The President’s address has become a hot potato, with opposition the DA and MK Party having filed legal papers accusing him of violating the Electoral Code of Conduct.

They say Ramaphosa abused his power and campaigned for the ANC.

Speaking in Chiawelo, Soweto, after casting his vote earlier today, Ramaphosa said his address was not targeted at advancing the interests of a specific party but was highlighting what all South Africans had achieved during his term.

The President also addressed claims of interference in the work of the IEC during the elections.

He has expressed confidence in the country’s security officials, saying they will be able to maintain law and order as the anxious wait for the election results will soon begin.
