Durban - The Democratic Alliance's Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality mayoral candidate Athol Trollip slated President Jacob Zuma, calling him an insult to social cohesion at Day of Reconciliation gathering in Kwazakhele on Wednesday.

Trollip delivered a speech in memory of Molly Blackburn; a representative of the DA’s founding movement, the Progressive Federal Party.

“South Africa can never become a truly reconciled nation without a deliberate focus on social cohesion, where all of us observe our painful past while embracing a new vision for the future.

“Jacob Zuma and the ANC have become an insult to social cohesion and democracy. Under Zuma, the ANC has taken this country backwards with more corruption, more scandals and less service delivery than ever before,” he said.

“While the President turns his back on the economy through reckless and misguided cabinet reshuffles, millions of South Africans remain out of work.”

“Here at home in Nelson Mandela Bay, we have come last for far too long. The ANC continues to put itself first, before the people, by breaking service delivery promises,” Trollip added.
