DA supporters took potshots at President Jacob Zuma and the ANC by singing “Awuleth’ i-shower yami” (bring me my shower) with hands raised above their heads to signal a showerhead at a function in Alexandra, Joburg, today.

A handful of supporters had gathered for the launch of the DA’s Believe Bus Tour.

They also sang “Helen Zille umama wethu” and “Maimane ipremier yethu” (Zille is our mother and Maimane our premier) and chanted “Viva, Maimane, our premier in waiting, viva!”.

The supporters were clad in their blue DA I Believe T-shirts bearing Maimane’s face.

When Maimane got off the Believe bus, he joined his supporters in song and toyi-toyied. They sang: ‘uMmusi lo abazange bambona’ (this is our Mmusi).

Said Maimane: “This is the first leg of our journey to bring change to this province.

“In this campaign I will be setting out my plans to create hundreds of thousands of jobs in Gauteng. But first I want to talk to the people of Gauteng. And I want to listen,” he said.

Maimane said the bus would travel to communities including Tembisa, Soshanguve, Sharpeville, Mamelodi and Orange Farm.

He outlined what he believed were the areas that needed the most attention in the province.

“We will open up Gauteng for business. Not to help rich people get richer. We will do it to help businesses big and small to start and grow so that they can create jobs,” he said.
