After more than 20 years of mismanagement and corruption by the ANC, more South Africans are waking up to fact that the Democratic Alliance (DA) holds the key to a brighter future.
This was confirmed today when 600 former ANC supporters officially signed their memberships and joined the DA at Ntabasgogo Village, Sulenkama Administrative Area in the Mhlontlo Local Municipality.
Today I was joined by DA Federal Chairperson and Executive Mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay, Athol Trollip, and DA EC Spokesperson, Mlindi Nhanha, to welcome these new Democrats into the fold.
The DA in the Eastern Cape is experiencing radical growth, particularly in the rural areas of the former Transkei.
The people in rural communities own no property and this is something the DA will change. They will have a right to own land and to hold a title deed.
Rural communities are poor and there is a lack of jobs but through agriculture and skills development the DA will remedy this.
They deserve services, services that provide basic human dignity, but the ANC government on a national, provincial and local level failed them.
They must never be used as voting cattle because they deserve the best possible services. Political parties like the ANC, come to these communities and make empty promises. But this is not the DA way.
Our people need a new beginning, a new organization and a new direction and therefore the DA brings them hope for the future.
This is why the DA has 600 new members and why 2 500 people came to listen to our message of total change and a new beginning for all South Africans.
