DA celebrates Workers Day in Kouga

The DA held a motorcade that visited Thornhill, Loerie, Hankey and Patensie, and once again we reached thousands of voters.

Street meetings were held in each of these towns and the Ward candidates, Aaron Nkomo, Frances Baxter, Sakhiwo Nangu & Basil Jafta were well received by the various communities.

The DA Mayoral Candidate for Kouga, Elza Van Lingen was part of the motorcade and she made speeches in which she spelt out the DA manifesto for Kouga, which is centred around improved service delivery, job creation and the stopping corruption.

DA Leader Mmusi Maimane was in Cape Town for workers day and he honoured the millions of working South Africans who help build South Africa every day, forming the backbone of our economy.

“Workers who provide services, teach our children, build infrastructure, make products and look after us in hospitals. Without them, our country would simply not move forward.

Yet while we celebrate Workers’ Day, we cannot forget that 1 in every 3 people in South Africa currently cannot find work.

While the struggle pre 1994 was to secure workers’ rights, the struggle post 1994 is the struggle for jobs and employment.

Political freedom has been attained; yet economic freedom is still a pipedream for the 8.2 million jobless South Africans.”

The ANC is taking South Africa in the wrong direction. They are creating jobs only for their friends and families, and not for the millions who are unemployed. This isn’t fair.

The DA is making progress where we govern, although we still have much more to do. We want to bring this change to your own municipality on 3 August 2016.

This is change that will create jobs, and deliver real economic freedom to our people,” said Maimane.
