Disadvantaged communities have shown confidence in the DA:Maimane

Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane has brought the party’s campaign back to the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro in the Eastern Cape.

The party is going all-out in its drive to be victorious in the fiercely contested Metro in the upcoming local government elections.

Maimane says disadvantaged communities in the townships of Port Elizabeth have shown confidence in the DA and have promised to vote for change.

Meanwhile DA leaders in Gauteng were also on the campaign trial to promote the party’s election message.

Maimane says the DA’s campaign in the Port Elizabeth metro has been well received.

The DA leader kicked off his programme at Kwazakhele in Port Elizabeth.

He urged supporters to vote for change, adding that their vote will go a long way towards halting corruption in the metro.

Maimane promises that a DA-led local administration will focus on infrastructure development in the townships, create jobs and provide decent housing.

The DA election campaign in Pretoria faced some opposition from residents who accused the party of making empty promises.

He encountered an angry resident, Lena Venter who says her municipal bill is R20 000 in arrears.

Msimanga did his best to side-step Lena’s unfortunate circumstances.
The DA says it plans to take over Tshwane from the ruling ANC within the next 21 days.
