DA, landless people sign KZN pact

2014-05-02 13:18
(File, Sapa)
Durban - The Abahlali baseMjondolo (Landless People's Movement) signed an agreement with the DA in Foreman Road informal settlement, in Clare Estate, Durban, on Friday.

The movement's leader Sbu Zikode and Democratic Alliance provincial leader Sizwe Mchunu signed the agreement, which would see Abahlali endorsing the party in KwaZulu-Natal, ahead of next week's general elections.

The provincial agreement could translate into as many as 27 000 votes for the DA.

While the agreement was being signed, a small number of African National Congress supporters harangued those attending the ceremony.

Abahlali's concern in the province was that the ANC had not delivered in the areas the movement wanted it to.

The movement said it had opened a number of criminal cases against ANC politicians and councillors, ranging from murder and assault to intimidation, none of which had been resolved.

One of main reasons the movement was turning its back on the ruling party was its failure to deliver housing to people in the settlement.

People had been living in the Foreman Road informal settlement since 1994, but were still living in shacks 20 years later.
