Premier candidate Bhanga appeals to Mdantsane residents
Mdantsane resident Nosisi Ndabeni spoke to DA provincial premier candidate Nqaba Bhanga of her hardships. Ndabeni complained that politicians only visit the area when they want votes.
She told Bhanga of the hardships experienced by the people of Mdatsane.
“Nothing is done for us. No one talks to us, no one understands the struggle of the poor. We need jobs. We need politicians to start working for the people.”
Ndabeni said President Cyril Ramaphosa was like any other politician, adding that nothing had changed from the tenure of former president Jacob Zuma.
“Don’t tell me about that one (Ramaphosa). We want to know who is our government so that we are clear. Are these people working for us?”
Bhanga then told her that under the DA, metros like the Nelson Mandela Bay had improved.
“We will bring change, mama, and we have done it before,” Bhanga said Ndabeni, asking that she vote DA.
The DA visited the area as part of its campaign efforts.
Bhanga told Dispatch that the communities of East London and King William’s Town, where he toured, were receptive to their message.
“The reality is that people are tired of empty promises. They want real change, and we can provide that,” he said...
