Cape Town - A call for change in governance was made by Cope president Mosiuoa Lekota during the party's Western Cape manifesto launch at the Langa sports complex on Saturday.

"Our people deserve better than what they have been sold to date," Lekota said.

He said in a statement that capable and caring men and women who, together with the professional civil servants would be appointed by Cope.

These people would stop corruption, waste and maladministration that characterises the majority of municipalities, and to the "cadre deployment" that robbed people of basic rights and services.

"The ruling party continues to fail our people as it lurches from Zumagate to Manyigate, from the corruption of police commissioners compromised by criminals to selling our country, our future, to one financial advisor to the President, and yet again to another.

"SA citizens deserved better than empty promises, lip-service to delivery and services that fail to live up to the country's commitment to a South Africa that belonged to all who lived in it," Lekota said.

He said Cope was committed to ensuring that all South Africans got quality, affordable services from local government.

"We, as the Congress of the People are committed to defeating racism and prejudice, to building true non-racialism and a united and prosperous South Africa for all who live in it," Lekota said.
