We deliver a job-creating economy - Zille

Johannesburg - The DA has a track record of managing the economy where it governs to create more jobs, party leader Helen Zille said at an election rally in the North West on Tuesday.

"It is no coincidence that the one province where the Democratic Alliance governs [Western Cape] has the lowest unemployment in South Africa," Zille said in Klerksdorp.

"... Where South Africans have voted the DA into office, we are managing the economy well so that it grows fast enough to create many more real, permanent jobs."

She said national government had failed to deliver on its promises for job creation since 2009 and many more South Africans were now unemployed.

"As I cross the country, more and more South Africans are telling me that a better life for all might be promised by the African National Congress, but it is being delivered by the DA," Zille said.

Good governance without corruption was a formula for job creation, and this was working in DA-led areas.

"You will not find a Nkandla where the DA governs," Zille said in reference to controversial R246m security upgrades to President Jacob Zuma's private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal.

The DA's policies helped entrepreneurs to start small businesses, improved education and helped graduates to get internships.

"Other parties talk of the better life; we are delivering the job-creating economic growth that actually creates the better life."

Zille said her party was growing bigger and stronger, and she urged potential voters to participate in next week's general elections and refrain from spoiling their ballots.
