DA launches film showing party’s ‘involvement in ending apartheid’

2013-05-13 17:04

A film depicting the DA’s involvement in ending apartheid will be shown to households across the country, party leader Helen Zille has said.

Launching the film in Cape Town, Zille said it would form part of the “Know your DA” campaign.

“So far we have distributed 800 000 of 2.9 million pamphlets and we’ve had one-on-one conversations with nearly 300 000 South Africans, most of these by going door-to-door and talking to people in their homes,” she said.

Democratic Alliance activists will now show the film during door-to-door campaigning ahead of next year’s elections.

“Over the coming two months, 30 000 copies of the film... will be distributed to all of our branches across the country.

The film will be available in English, isiZulu, isiXhosa, Sesotho, Setswana, Sepedi, Xitsonga, siSwati and Afrikaans,” said Zille.

The DA hopes to reach one million households with the film over the next two months.

“Each branch will hold weekly house meetings where they will invite South Africans who have never heard our untold story, or who have never voted for the DA before.”
