He said the next term of govermement  would see the ANC "dealing with economic fortunes of the country. There are far too many people unemployed. We need an economy that will fire on all engines and hopefully see more people in employment."

Top of his list of issues was trying to get the people of SA to become more involved in the new economic drive.
