2008-02-16 00:00

DA leader Helen Zille will visit Pietermaritzburg for the first time next Saturday, February 23. The local branch of the party invited the Pietermaritzburg public to meet their leader and hear her address on the subject “Take Back Power”.

Convenor of the visit, councillor Keith Olivier, said Zille explained the purpose of her visit when she said: “The battle for the soul of the ANC has been won. The battle for the soul of South Africa starts now.”

Zille will go on a walkabout in Debi Market in Northdale. This will be followed by a public meeting at the Civic Centre (next to the market), starting at 12.30 pm. There is no charge for this function, which is open to all members of the public, said Olivier.

He added that in the evening there will be dinner for paying guests and anyone interested in attending can contact him on 083 280 3965.
