DA NMB marks 100 days to elections with new campaign

BY ASAVELA FEKEMA - APRIL 26, 2016

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Nelson Mandela Bay officially launched its one-hundred day Metro takeover strategy at its Ngqura Constituency Office in Kwazakhele on Tuesday.

Addressing the media and party members, Metro mayoral candidate Athol Trollip, said it will undertake a series of door-to-door campaigns and town hall meetings to encourage residents to “vote for change” in the local government elections on 3 August.

“Thirty-six percent is the highest level of any unemployment in any metro and the Bay has the highest. For too long, our people have been subjected to poor governance under the ANC, with more bucket toilets, more corruption and more unemployment than ever before,” Trollip said.

Some of the issues the party will address include the stopping of corruption, a reduction in unemployment and improvement in service delivery.

“Over the last six elections, the DA won and the support is growing. The people of the Bay should vote for change, choose change, and stand up for change especially the youth because they are important and they are the biggest constituency,” Trollip said.

“During the month of May, we will focus on taking the DA’s manifesto to the residents of the Bay. Our promises and how we will achieve them will be laid out for residents to interrogate”.
