Our Communities need to be safe

October 10, 2018

The residents of Ward 5 in Humansdorp made it clear at the IDP meeting last night that they feel unsafe on their streets and in their homes.

Youngsters who are high on drugs and armed with pangas are roaming the neighbourhood and there was even a murder on Sunday where a young man was stabbed to death.

The DA has a plan to make our police service honest, professional and effective in fighting crime. We will focus on:

  1. Fighting corruption within the police;
  2. Retraining police officers to serve and protect with pride;
  3. Hiring people with a passion for policing;
  4. Instituting an effective drug-busting force within the South African Police Service; and
  5. Ensuring that law and order is maintained in our communities and that there are effective arrests, prosecutions and convictions of criminals.

Lets vote for change in 2019 and make our streets safe again.

2019 election campaign launched at Cape St Francis

September 30, 2018

The DA in Kouga launched its 2019 election campaign in Cape St Francis yesterday.

The constituency meeting was also attended by the DA in Kou Kamma.

“We will focus on five key issues namely: corruption, crime, jobs, immigration and service delivery – what we call our “agenda for change”, said Malcolm Figg, the leader of the DA in the region.

“These are the issues that really matter to South Africans. And they are issues which only the DA has a clear and credible plan to deal with.

Our message speaks to fighting corruption and state capture, and ridding our country of this scourge for good.

Our message speaks to fixing our Police Force so that it can actually protect and serve the people.

Right now, our Police Force can’t keep our communities safe. They’re not properly trained to do so, and they are riddled with corruption.

The DA will transform SAPS into a lean, clean crime-fighting machine.

We will only hire people with a passion for policing, and we will retrain existing officers so they can serve and protect with pride.

We will also bring back the gang and drug units that were disbanded by the ANC government so that we can keep our communities in places like Humansdorp, and particularly our young people, safe.

Our message speaks to the crucial issue of employment, and how we can ensure that all South Africans have fair access to jobs.

And when I say jobs, I mean real long-term, sustainable jobs.

Only the DA has a plan to harness the power of the private sector and the power of the entrepreneur to create these jobs.

We have proven this beyond all doubt in the province and Metros and municipalities like Kouga where we govern. In the last year, three-quarters of all new jobs were created in the DA-run Western Cape.

We must break down our State Owned Enterprises, we must make sure our cities can build sustainable infrastructure, and we must allow small businesses to thrive. This is our agenda for change.

But our goal is not only to help create new jobs. It is also about making sure that young people have the skills and experience to make the most of these opportunities.

We have some big plans to achieve this, like a year of voluntary national service for school leavers, and a network of job centres throughout the country.

Our message speaks to the urgent need to secure our country’s borders, welcoming those who want to come here legally, but shutting out those who try to do so illegally.

We’ll do so by strengthening our border posts and ridding Home Affairs of corruption, but also by supporting and caring for legitimate refugees and asylum seekers.

No country in the world can afford uncontrolled immigration, and particularly not a country where resources are as scarce as ours.

We need a government that is prepared to lead on this – a government that won’t allow this dangerous powder keg to be left unchecked.

Under the DA, we will immediately restore the law and order that this government has been unable to maintain.

Our message speaks to a better quality of life for our people by speeding up the delivery of basic services to all communities.

Living without these basic services is robbing people of their dignity.

The DA has a plan to speed up the delivery of basic services.

By cleaning up provincial governments we will ensure that the people’s money is spent on the people at a local level.

This includes managing the allocation of government housing in a fair and transparent manner.

Lets build One South Africa for all” said Figg.

One South Africa for all

September 26, 2018

The response has been overwhelming, with thousands of South Africans from all walks of life signing up to be a part of Team One South Africa.

One South Africa for all

This week, we will officially begin the process of deploying activists to all corners of the country, as we spread our message of One South Africa for All.

I am aware that many of you want to help but simply do not have the time to go door to door spreading the message of hope.

If this is the case, please consider making a donation to the cause.

Every Rand enables us to reach and unify more South Africans as we head into the 2019 Elections.

Not since 1994 have we so desperately needed to come together. Political forces across the spectrum are trying harder than ever to divide us.

We cannot let them win.

Your contribution to One South Africa for All.

Warm regards,

Mmusi Maimane

DA Leader
