DA mayoral candidate for Johannesburg Mpho Phalatse wants to give Joburgers a sense of normalcy back and then rebuild the City of Gold into the economic hub of Africa, she told parliamentary reporter Jan Gerber.

It was the conditions she experienced in an Alexandra casualty ward that drove DA mayoral candidate Mpho Phalatse into politics.

"The cases I saw made me very angry," she said in a telephonic interview with News24. She said it was a direct result of the conditions people were living in.
