There is lots of propaganda doing the rounds at the moment in the Kouga. Most people can see through it but for those who are considering changing their vote due to assertions of minority parties, lets consider the following:
1) South Africa has one of the best constitutions in the world. It protects your right to be a Christian.
It protects your right to own land.
It protects your right NOT to have an abortion.
It protects your right to speak Afrikaans
It protects your right to trade, have a profession and or an occupation
It protects your right to education.
It protects your right to freedom of association.
Many of the points raised in favour of the FF+ in “16 Vinnige feite”, are in contravention of the very constitution that is protecting YOUR rights and freedoms.
The Democratic Alliance holds the constitution to be the highest law in the land and will fight to protect the rights that have mentioned above and the many other rights and freedoms that ALL people in South Africa have according to OUR constitution.
2) Misleading Statements in the article “16 Vinnige feite”
a) Supports working together with the EFF. In the FF+ column, it says Nee/No and in the DA column, it says Ja/Yes, when in reality, just recently, on 5 June, both the EFF AND the FF+ decided together with the DA, not to attend one of Jacob Zuma’s speeches.
b) Lewer gratis dienste aan nie betaalers. In the DA column, it says Ja/Yes and in the FF+ it says Nee/No.
Does the FF+ realize that that means that every pensioner registered as indigent, including all those people living in the Municipal flats in places like Rustenburg and all the people who are currently unemployed will no longer have access to any water or electricity, as according to the FF+ policy, people who cannot pay for those services, will not receive them.
These are just a few of the misleading, vague and incorrect statements quoted in the article. Be very wary of casting a vote for a particular party, based on an article that is less than truthful.
Where the DA governs, it governs well.
Every year the Cape Province and the Midvaal municipality deliver better, more efficient services.
The DA have a proven track record. Lend us your vote for the next 5 years so that we can improve your services too!
Lets not split the vote in Kouga and suffer through another 5 years of corruption, lack of service delivery and a declining job market.
