Brett Herron says there is a group of white elites in the DA in City Cape Town'

Former mayoral committee member for urban development and transport in the City of Cape Town Brett Herron says the DA's manifesto is a total sham.

This week, Herron resigned from the DA and Mayco citing lack of leadership in the party and saying that the party has not transformed.

Eusebius McKasier asked Herron if he believes there are white elites in the DA?

Yes, I am saying that because that has been my experience.

Eusebius also spoke to Democratic Alliance Head of Governance Claire Price about the party's plans to provide housing to the residents.

A lot of land is owned by the national government. We have long appealed to the government to release land.

Claire Price, Democratic Alliance Head of Governance

We are going to produce 53 000 opportunities in the next five years.
