DA leader Mmusi Maimane has paid Nelson Mandela Bay a visit once again in the run up to the local elections in August.
Maimane went on a door-to-door campaign in Missionvale and KwaDwesi on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth, accompanied by mayoral candidate, Athol Trollip.
George Moses was one of the residents who gave Maimane his wish list for the area. Among the wishes handed over to Maimane were rectification of houses, a multipurpose hall, a clinic, and an old-age home.
“We also need employment and youth programmes,” adds Moses.
Maimane says the DA is the only alternative to bring about change and it is aiming at winning more than 50% of the vote instead of forming a coalition with other parties.
“We want to make sure SA has a government that can deliver basic services. (A government) that can ensure the Bay becomes a place where jobs are created, and ultimately destroy corruption. We want to bring back hope to the Bay and say we can bring the change that SA needs, and certainly what the Nelson Mandela Bay needs. And what I saw here, on Wednesday, is that we walked into a city where the houses have been built without toilets, which is an insult to the dignity of SA.”
