Port Elizabeth - DA Mayoral candidate Athol Trollip launched his 60 wards in 60 days campaign from the party's Ngqura constituency offices in Njoli Street, Kwazakhele on Monday.
Trollip said he would be focusing on the six pillars that the DA would be rolling out in the metro to turn the city around.
He said he was filled with hope when walking through the streets of Kwazakhele, because he could sense the immense potential, from the hawkers of Njoli Square to the fruit sellers on Daku Street.
He also announced an entrepreneurship competition, where applications will be opened to all young aspirant entrepreneurs who would be required to submit a business plan for evaluation.
Seed capital of R10 000 has already been donated and a business mentor selected. Trollip said the chosen candidate will be guided by this mentor so that they can reach their entrepreneurship goals.
"We will give more information throughout our 60 day campaign, with the winner being announced towards the end of the campaign," he said.
Trollip also spoke of creating Opportunity centres to provide information on investment opportunities, licensing, land use, planning approval procedures, investor information and business start-up advice.
