Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane says his party is the future of the country in all its glorious diversity.
Speaking at the launch of the party’s election manifesto at the Rand stadium in Johannesburg, he says his party guarantees to change the life of South Africans.
He indicated that the African National Congress government has failed the people as the country continues to experience service delivery protests.
“South Africans remain in poverty as others have better opportunities.”
He says the existing government needs to go, stressing that change is important for all South Africans to reach economic emancipation.
Meanwhile Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille has urged South Africans to allow the DA to transform their municipalities into the success story of Cape Town.
Speaking at the same event, De Lille says independent rating organisations have ranked Cape Town as the leading local authority with regards to financial management.
“Cape Town also shows that progress is possible, together we need more municipalities to join us on this path to progress. The DA is ready to start bringing this change to other metros and municipalities.”
