THE Democratic Alliance (DA) said its support is growing in the rural
villages of Harry Gwala District after it was welcomed by the community of Mgangeni village in Ward 7 under Ubuhlebezwe Municipality recently

The ANC received support in last year’s local government elections, but DA managed to get a few seats in some local municipalities, including Harry Gwala District Municipality.

According to DA MP, Francois Rodgers, the DA is aiming to get more votes in the Harry Gwala 2019 national elections.

“Election campaigns for 2019 have started and we want to visit many communities in Harry Gwala to convince people to vote for the DA,” said Rodgers.

A community member and a former NFP member in Ubuhlebezwe, Eric Mayeza, blamed government for not delivering services to the people.

Mayeza previously served in NFP structures in Ubuhlebezwe from 2011 to 2017 and participated in last year’s local government election campaigns for the NFP.

He recently joined DA and his aim is to campaign for the party for the 2019 national elections he said.

“The ruling party has failed to deliver services as promised so I want people from Ward 7 to support the DA. Many young people turn to crime and drugs because there are no job opportunities,” said Mayeza.

Community members asked the DA to help them get RDP houses and proper roads.
