DA launches Madiba-inspired election slogan

The Democratic Alliance (DA) has launched its election slogan “Honour Madiba’s dream – vote DA” for next Wednesday local polls.


The poster was launched by DA leader Mmusi Maimane and Tshwane Metro DA Mayoral candidate, Solly Msimanga, near the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

Maimane says all South Africans should honour former President Nelson Mandela’s vision of an inclusive South Africa if they want the country to prosper.

“Nelson Mandela’s ideals are ideals of freedom. The ideals that say constitutionalism which speaks about the fact that you can choose a freedom of association, or you can choose to belong to whatever political party you want to do so. Nelson Mandela fought against black and white domination, and therefore our project as the DA is to build South Africans who come from different political back-grounds, different races, standing together saying we are better together, we prosper together and we must address historical legacies.”
