The Democratic Alliance (DA) is taking its campaign to the eMalahleni  and Steve Tshwete Municipality in Mpumalanga.

The party’s National Spokesperson, Siviwe Gwarube and the Steve Tshwete Municipality’s mayoral candidate Bosam Grobler and provincial leader, Jane Sithole will join DA leader John Steenhuisen on the campaign trail.

Both municipalities have long-standing water shortages, a problem that has prompted protests.

Right on the heels of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), the DA is now in Mpumalanga campaigning at the two municipalities.

Steenhuisen seeks to convince the voters that the DA is a better option that will see the issue of water supply being a thing of the past.

These municipalities are under the control of the African National Congress (ANC) but haven’t been without political squabbles.

The provincial Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs has had to intervene and sort out issues of budget approvals, which caused chaos in the council.
