The South African government has taken actions to ensure that the country’s upcoming elections are peaceful, an official said on Monday.

All safety and security measures have been put in place to create a conducive environment, Minister of Defence and Military Veterans Thandi Modise told reporters in Pretoria, the administrative capital of South Africa.

Government departments have aligned their efforts to prevent major incidents of disruption from happening, Modise added.

South Africans will elect leadership at various levels in more than 200 municipalities across the country next week.
