Election season is in full swing and political parties are putting their best foot forward in a bid to win voters' confidence.
To separate the wheat from the chaff, News24 editor-in-chief Adriaan Basson and political editor Qaanitah Hunter will grill candidates in a series of town halls in the run-up to the 2021 municipal elections. In this week's instalment, they ask candidates, who will rule Cape Town?
Joining them to answer questions on access to housing, investment, and safety is the GOOD party's Cape Town mayoral candidate Brett Herron, the ANC's provincial head of elections Cameron Dugmore and DA Cape Town mayoral candidate Geordin Hill-Lewis.
The City of Cape Town is currently run by the Democratic Alliance which received a two thirds majority in the 2016 local government elections.
The metro is hotly contested among political parties who are hoping to increase their electoral fortunes in that area in the 2021 municipal elections.
The DA has put up Hill-Lewis as their candidate to take over as mayor after the 2021 municipal elections.
The ANC, who has battled in its role as an opposition, is hoping to attract voters back to the party while smaller parties like GOOD and the Patriotic Alliance have been trying to attract voters.
