THE DA has proudly announced its ward candidate for Ward 15.

She is Phoeboe Loff, affectionately known as “General” and she is also a committee member in the ward.

DA provincial leader, Andrew Louw, made the announcement during the party’s Flashmob campaign that started at the Cecil Sussman and Phakamile Mabija intersection in Kimberley on Wednesday (13/07).

Traffic almost came to a standstill as DA volunteers in blue chanted and danced gleefully, holding DA placards at all four traffic lights.

The intersection was a hive of activity as passing cars and trucks hooted while the supporters danced to music from loudspeakers.

The whole area was covered in blue and white colours.

Responding to why they had the activity at that specific spot, Louw said that it was part of their campaign programme.

“We always want to be unique. We always use different methods to interact with the public,” he said.

Earlier in the day he had been busy with door-to-door canvassing in Phutanang and, according to him, the response from the community had been overwhelming.

“With the help of 400 volunteers we successfully completed our house visits.

“We once again surprised the ANC and I am confident that the DA and ‘General’ Loff, will take the ward, come the elections.”
