DA RESPONSE TO MLIBO QOBOSHIYANE, ANC EASTERN CAPE PROVINCIAL SPOKESPERSON: CALL ON “DA TO REFRAIN FROM POLITICAL PLAGIARISM”

There is a new struggle for freedom that is being waged in our province today. It is a struggle for jobs, for service delivery, housing and decent roads and the ANC is failing dismally in this regard. The voters of this province are clearly catching on to the fact that the DA delivers on these issues. The DA does not just talk about a better life for all. We deliver one. This is because where the DA governs, the DA governs well and delivers services to all the people.

People from all communities across this province are joining the DA because they see the DA as the party that can deliver a better life for all, rather than promising one in the hereafter. They bring to our party songs and slogans that epitomises the struggle for new opportunities.

The ANC is now panicking as the DA ranks across the province are being boosted by former ANC-supporters. The DA embraces the rainbow vision of Nelson Mandela and believes that, as the Freedom Charter so aptly states, that South Africa belongs to all who live in it, both black and white.

South Africa is a much better place after 1994 than it was before. But the ANC has lost its way and does not do enough to stamp out corruption, nepotism and the lack of accountability. These all steal resources that would otherwise be devoted to improving the lives of the poorest of the poor. This is why the DA is at the forefront of the new struggle for a better South Africa. The DA delivers for all the people.
