Durban - The Democratic Alliance on Wednesday released their
list of candidate councillors at a press conference in Durban ahead of planned
local government elections in August.
Referring to the candidates, Provincial leader Zwakele
Mncwango said "these select" individuals were committed to moving
South Africa forward.
Mcwango said South Africans were increasingly viewing the DA
as their only alternative.
"Our support was confirmed by the number of
applications we received from South Africans who see the DA as their only
alternative and a home that [has] the interests of the people at heart,"
He used the opportunity to take a swipe at the ANC, saying
that members of the ruling party were self-serving.
"The people of this province do not need a government
that protects corrupt leaders and [leaders that] fight among themselves while
the poorest of the poor continue to suffer," he said.
"The ANC has changed in KZN. It does not matter who is
in charge. They put themselves first and the people last," Mncwango
