The former Limpopo ANC Youth League chairperson said the position of the ANC deputy president was key, both in the party and state.
The deputy president is the party’s head of deployment and leader of government business in parliament.
Mamabolo said if elected, he would ensure that young people are deployed to strategic positions.
“We want to see young people in cabinet, more young people in councils, we want to see them venturing into business and build them to become new billionaires.”
He said the required threshold to be on the ballot is guaranteed, as a candidate only needs the support of one of the ANC leagues or provinces to be considered.
“We will get that. In fact we will get more. We are on,” he said.
