DEMOCRATIC Alliance (DA) held an election campaign drive for the 2019 general elections at the Extension 7 hall in Kokstad last Saturday.

In his address, DA Provincial Legislature member Francois Rodgers said the party is going to expose corrupt government officials in municipalities and government departments.

“Because of the corruption rate, basic services like houses and running water are not delivered to people by the government, and poverty is getting worse,” said Rodgers.

He said the lives of people have changed for the better in Johannesburg, Tshwane, Nelson Mandela Bay and Cape Town where the DA
governs.

“In Nelson Mandela Bay people have running water and toilets in their houses. The lives of people living in informal settlements have been dignified after DA delivered basic services in Port Elizabeth and other places,” added Rodgers.

A video of DA leader, Mmusi Maimane was played during the rally.

DA Harry Gwala Deputy Chairperson, Bradwyn Marnce said people of Kokstad must unite and vote for change and said election campaigns will run until 2019.
