DA promises imprisonment for corrupt politicians if you vote it into power
The Democratic Alliance visited Alexandra township on Monday to speak to community members and to listen to their concerns.
The DA's Phumzile Van Damme says she is supporting local businesses in the area as well as encouraging people to register to vote.
This is to listen to the concerns of the people and the community.Phumzile Van Damme, DA's shadow Minister of Communications
The biggest concern that I have come across is housing, as we know that housing is a provincial competence. Lack of identity documents is also a big issue because a lot of children can't go to school because their parents can't get birth certificates for them.Phumzile Van Damme, DA's shadow Minister of Communications
Van Damme says the DA will also be encouraging Alexandra residents to register to vote during the registration weekend in February.
The party will deliver its election manifesto on 23 February.
All the issues brought forward by our people will be infused in the manifesto. All the concerns, we believe the DA will be able to have solutions to.Phumzile Van Damme, DA's shadow Minister of Communications
I think the big issue with regards to housing in Alex is that there is a lot of corruption.Phumzile Van Damme, DA's shadow Minister of Communications
If the DA was the national government we would make sure that politicians convicted of corruption receive 15 years sentences and make sure there is regular lifestyle audit.Phumzile Van Damme, DA's shadow Minister of Communications
The first of many a week away from home on the campaign trail. Here’s to 5 months of living out of a suitcase, coming home to do laundry & working hard winning hearts & minds. I love Election season. It is most grueling but, utterly fulfilling #RegisterToVoteDA #Election2019— Phumzile Van Damme (@zilevandamme) January 7, 2019
