The Democratic Alliance (DA) in the Northern Cape has launched the party’s election manifesto which it says is a message of hope.
The DA has promised that the party will create an environment which will be conducive for the creation of sustainable jobs.
DA provincial leader Andrew Louw also introduced the DA’s Mayoral Candidate, Suresh Kika to the residents of Kimberley.
Louw says Kika will share his vision of positive change for Kimberley to improve the lives of ordinary people.
“He is not a new kid on the block, he is a sheriff with 28 years of experience in the work. He is a renowned person in the Kimberley and the surroundings and he is a person that goes very well in our communities. We have already showcased him in a number of our wards. In Kimberley we have 33 wards. And we will be doing that again in this month of July.
Meanwhile, Hartswater residents in the Northern Cape are appealing to the African National Congress (ANC) to deliver adequate basic services.
This emerged during the party’s electioneering campaign in the Phokwane area, where National Executive Committee member Nomvula Mokonyane was engaging with residents to urge them to vote for the party.
Some residents say they still have hope that the ANC will deliver.
“There is so many problems that we have, we stay in the shanties, there is no electricity and no water. Each and every time we attend some meetings with the ANC and we hope they will take care of us.”
“We still have hope in the ANC that sometime we will have something better”
