Western Cape economic growth reversed under DA – Gwede Mantashe

2014-04-12 16:21

Economic growth in the Western Cape has been reversed under the DA leadership, ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe has said.

In the last four years Gauteng had, under the ANC, created 442 000 jobs while the Democratic Alliance created only 92 000 jobs in the Western Cape, Mantashe said today at an election rally in Eldorado Park, Soweto.

He claimed that most of the Western Cape jobs were for white people.

“That is how racist the DA is, it’s a wolf coming in sheep skin,” he said.

“It wants to get us and once it arrives it’s going to squander us.”

Mantashe said Eldorado Park was in the hands of the DA by default.

“It is our fault ... we must rescue Eldos from being an area that survives on complaining,” he said.

Mantashe added that the mentality that coloured people were a minority group needed to be broken.
