GOOD Party leader Patricia De Lille took her election campaign to Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs on Sunday.
She says the focus of their campaign is tackling high water and electricity tariffs. De Lille was speaking at Zeekoevlei Secondary School in Lotus River where she encouraged residents to register to vote.
“The municipalities and the metropolitans are making profit out of our communities because they make a mark up on the price of electricity and water and we say that profiteering must stop because water and lights have become unaffordable. So our campaign is if we get in there we will push.”

Meanwhile, the African Transformation Movement (ATM) took its election campaign to the rural village of Sithebe outside Mthatha in the Eastern Cape on Sunday.
ATM President Vuyolwethu Zungula says government is not doing enough to address issues that continue to haunt the country.
Zungula highlighted gender-based violence, fraud and corruption, unemployment and poverty as the main challenges facing the country.
He says the ATM’s stance is the re-introduction of the death penalty to curb the high rate of gender-based violence in the country.
“We can not have each and every month women are killed left and right in our country to an extent that women are living in fear and they are saying “Am I next?” because there is a culture of killing women in our country and the government does nothing to protect women and children. So each and every person who decides that they are going to kill people they must know that under the ATM government death penalty awaits them.”
