One Movement for Cape Town is not a political party. It’s a community forum. The journey that lies ahead is certainly not that of politics. It’s one of changing lives… It is time for change… People are tired of all the talk…Verline Leo, independent candidate - ward 60
One Movement for Cape Town is under the umbrella of One SA, currently driven by Mmusi Maimane…Verline Leo, independent candidate - ward 60
…There’s not enough progress, and not fast enough… Leadership is lacking… When it goes to the municipal offices… you want to know something is going to be done… We’ve got drug use… Structures put up by the government, but no ventilation… Toilets that can’t be used… No medical facility… The Lansdowne area needs a day hospital…Verline Leo, independent candidate - ward 60
I think about the challenges I have… how do our kids deal with them? … We need support; we need one another…Verline Leo, independent candidate - ward 60
There are areas in ward 60 that is looking really good. But there are areas that need attention… We need to have an open-door policy…Verline Leo, independent candidate - ward 60
