KOUGA was blue on Friday, April 27 as the DA celebrated Freedom Day with beach cleanups, door-to-door meetings, braai’s and public meetings.
Freedom Day is an annual celebration of South Africa’s first non-racial democratic elections of 1994.
The 1994 election paved the way towards a new democratic dispensation and a new constitution for the country.
“We are the most diverse political party in South Africa with people from all walks of life identifying with the DA message of a freedom we can use, fairness and opportunity, said Brenton Williams, the DA spokesperson in Kouga.
“Celebrating Freedom Day is about celebrating individual freedoms and human rights that were hard-earned.
It is now up to us to make a difference and to defend and extend those freedoms and rights to all South Africans,” said Henni Britz the DA Constituency Chairperson for Kouga and Kou Kamma municipalities.
“There was strong political campaigning, respectful and disciplined as we celebrated Freedom Day in Humansdorp,” said Kouga Mayor Horatio Hendricks. “A number of new DA youth members and adult members signed up in Kwanomzamo yesterday as our activists went door to door and talking to residents about a better life for all in 2019 and beyond,” added Hendricks.
