Earlier in the week, Ramaphosa addressed members at the party's 107th celebrations.

"We recognise that in recent times, our movement has fallen short of our people's expectations," Ramaphosa said.

"In this manifesto, we have a clear plan for growth and faster progress... It is a plan to unite the country, grow the economy, create jobs and reduce inequality."
