Imagine: Deputy President Julius Malema…


Through the Democratic Alliance

This year’s election will be highly decisive. The ANC, the party that has been synonymous with poor management and corruption for the last three decades, is ready to lose its majority. In light of this, the specter of an ANC coalition with the EFF looms. It is not unrealistic that Julius Malema could become the deputy president.

This potential alliance could usher in an era of instability, with the National Health Insurance (NHI) being implemented, property being expropriated without compensation, rampant corruption and economic collapse. However, this dire scenario can be averted if South Africans come together and vote for a strong DA.

A coalition between the ANC, EFF, and possibly other smaller parties such as the MK party and the PA will be a disaster for South Africa. The EFF’s radical policies, including expropriation without compensation, will undermine property rights, destabilize the economy and deter foreign investment. The implementation of the NHI, without proper funding and management, could cripple the health care system and leave millions without adequate medical care. The endemic corruption plaguing the ANC will only worsen, further eroding public confidence.

But this bleak future is not inevitable. The DA offers a beacon of hope amid the political turmoil. By voting for the DA in record numbers, South Africans can prevent this coalition of corruption and secure a better future. The DA’s record speaks for itself – in the Western Cape, where the DA governs, there are lower unemployment rates, better healthcare services and less corruption compared to ANC-led provinces. The DA’s proven ability to deliver good governance, create jobs and fight corruption is what South Africa desperately needs.

During this campaign, the DA traveled the country and met South Africans from all walks of life. We have seen the struggle and heard the hopelessness of mothers struggling to feed their children, fathers desperate for work, the sick fearing the public health care system, and young graduates begging for work at traffic lights. We experienced their pain and bitter disappointment. Yet, amidst these challenges, there is a glimmer of hope.

To the mothers, fathers and young graduates of South Africa, help is on the way. The DA is ready to address your concerns and work tirelessly to improve your lives. Our diverse leadership is committed to creating a South Africa where everyone can thrive. We refuse to give up on this beautiful nation, and we are determined to make tomorrow a better country.

Together we have the power to write a new chapter in our history. It doesn’t matter where you live, what language you speak or what your background is. If you want to end unemployment, crime, corruption and poverty, and if you believe that tomorrow can be a better country, then vote for the DA. A vote for the DA is a vote to save South Africa from the brink of disaster and to build a prosperous future for all.

Join us at the polls on May 29. Your vote for the DA can ensure a better tomorrow for South Africa. Together we can make history and create a nation we can all be proud of.
