'I find it undemocratic that Makhura refuses to debate with me'

On Tuesday, the Democratic Alliance (DA) premier candidate Solly Msimanga launches an electronic billboard challenging Gauteng Premier David Makhura to a debate.

Read: Msimanga says DA can't rule out coalition with EFF in Gauteng

Msimanga joins 702's Breakfast's Bongani Bingwa to talk about his planned billboard.

He believes the people of Gauteng deserve to have an informed opinion of who they are voting for.

There has been a lot said about my time in Tshwane, and I want to put that against what we have been able to so that people can have an informed decision when they go out and vote.

Solly Msimanga, Premier candidate - DA

I find it a bit undemocratic that David Makhura will not come and debate on several issues including Life Esidimeni, e-tolls, R20 billion corruption and Bosasa. I think he must come out and have these discussions in public so that we can know once and for all that this is what they have been doing.

Solly Msimanga, Premier candidate - DA

The DA continues has a specific manifesto in Gauteng on what the party intends to do for the people of the province, he says.

I even made an announcement on Monday on what we plan to do in the first 100 days of office. So there is a clear plan of what we want to do.

Solly Msimanga, Premier candidate - DA

Each opponent needs to lay out their plans for the people of Gauteng, says Msimanga.

He addresses the DA's use of former stalwart Nelson Mandela name in its campaign.

Mandela said let there be food, salt, work and bread for all. We have been talking about how we aim to create jobs and dignity for all and those are the issues that Mandela raised.
