Nearly 200 residents of Ward 5 (Humansdorp) attended a meeting in the Civic Centre last night as the DA gears up to win the bi-election taking place in the Ward on 27 November.
Shadow Minister of Sport and Recreation, Donald Lee, and Shadow Minister of Women, Youth, Children and People with Disabilities, Helen Lamoela addressed the audience as did DA candidate in Ward 5 Desmond Pietersen.
Residents said that they will not be fooled by the sudden service delivery like the grading of their roads as they have seen too many election promises in the past.
“Ons bloed is blou (our blood is blue)” said one DA supporter after the meeting.
Helen Lamoela said that in the past 15 years, things have gone backwards in South Africa and the ANC is incapable of turning things around, to much applause from the audience.
“I have spent time with the DA Councillors in Kouga and they are a capable team”, said Lamoela. “They will be able to fix the Kouga”.
