DA hopes to restore dignity

2016-06-22 06:00

ROY JANKIELSOHN, DA member in the Free State Legislature:

MANY young people in the Free State are without jobs, without basic services and without dignity and hope.

Why does our province find itself in this situation? It is all about the government in power. The pre-1994 government thought it would govern forever through racial segregation, discrimination and patrimonial policies.

The current government thinks it will govern forever through racial division, cadre-based inequality and neo-patrimonial tendencies. Some opposition parties think they can get into government through racial rhetoric and policies that institutionalise poverty for all.

The DA has a proven track record of opportunity creation through the development of an environment that entrenches good governance and invests in infrastructure and service delivery that brings dignity to all our people and enables investment, opportunities and a secure future through education that empowers young people for the employment market.

To not vote out of protest is passive support for more unemployment, more poverty and a total collapse of governance and service delivery. Everyone can have freedom you can use and opportunity that supplies hope, dignity and fairness you can experience. It is important that voters make the right choices on 3 August.
