Political opponents Cameron Dugmore and Alan Winde open up about parenting
We know them as political figures, but how are they as fathers?
The African National Congress's (ANC's) Cameron Dugmore and the Democratic Alliance's (DA's) Alan Winde are political opponents in the province.
Dugmore is the leader of the official opposition in the Western Cape Legislature and Winde is the Premier of the province.
The two men face constant challenges as political leaders and they also face parenting challenges too.
Dugmore, a father of three, says he tries his best to always stay in touch with his children in order to build trust between them.
