Zille on a campaign trail at Karatara village

Western Cape Premier Helen Zille is on the Democratic Alliance campaign trail in the small forest village of Karatara near Sedgefield in the Southern Cape. She is being accompanied by Knysna Mayor Georlene Wolmarans and Speaker Eleanor Bouw-Spies.

Zille says the town could soon be on the tourism map with the planned Plett to Cape Town bike trail. She says Karatara also has the potential to be developed as an agri-village to make the town more sustainable.

Residents say their major challenges are housing and sanitation.
