Township economy plays a major role:DA

Democratic Alliance leader (DA), Mmusi Maimane says township economy plays a major role in addressing the jobs scarcity question.

Maimane met with the business community at Walmer Township in Port Elizabeth, as part of the DA’s campaign to win the Nelson Mandela Bay municipality.

Maimane says small businesses must be supported in order to create jobs.

“Communities that are forgotten like Walmer are communities that become prosperous communities. That is why it is important to meet the business people in our community.”

“Our key focus here in Nelson Mandela Bay is that we want to create jobs and in order to purchase from those businesses we need to support them. We want to create an economy in Walmer that works for all the people,” says Maimane.

On Tuesday Maimane launched the Party’s Manifesto for Change in Braille and audio form at Worcester in the Boland.
