DURBAN, South Africa (Reuters) – President Cyril Ramaphosa vowed to create more jobs, boost economic growth and address the unequal structure of the South African economy at a rally on Saturday to launch the ruling party’s national election campaign.

“At the center of our manifesto is a plan to create many more jobs and ensure that all workers can earn a decent living,” Ramaphosa told African National Congress supporters at a stadium in Durban.

“The most pressing task for our country is to set the economy on a higher path of shared growth and to transform the structure of our economy to provide opportunities for millions of South Africans,” he added.
