Helen Zille says SA can be fixed

2014-03-29 10:44

Johannesburg - There is nothing wrong with South Africa that cannot be fixed, said Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille on Friday.

Speaking at a public meeting in Belfast, Mpumalanga, Zille said: "The lesson of South Africa’s history is that we can shape our future by the choices we make."

She said the DA was the only political party truly focused on the future of the country.

The economy was growing and jobs were created in the areas where the party governed.

"The Western Cape, where the DA governs, has the lowest unemployment rate in South Africa. Cape Town is the city in South Africa with the lowest income inequality," Zille said.

The province was also the first to provide universal access to anti-retroviral medication.

Zille said independent researchers had apparently found that the Midvaal municipality in Gauteng, controlled by the DA, was the only place in the province where the majority of residents -- black and white -- were happy about service delivery.

"When we get the chance to put our policies into practice, we lead the way in eradicating the legacy of apartheid.Where the DA governs, things get better – step by step," she said.

The DA leader was optimistic that the coming election could bring real change to South Africa.

"We can choose change. We can choose a government that does what it takes to create real jobs," she said.
