Corruption has robbed young South Africans of the opportunity to find decent jobs, says DA leader Mmusi Maimane.
The campaign will see the leader of the largest opposition party engage voters from now till the May election about what they feel should change in the country.
Taking his campaign trail to Tembisa, which has about 500 000 residents. A substantial number of them are unemployed.
The DA says this will be a thing of the past if residents vote the party into power. “We want to make sure that citizens, especially those who stay in homes who depend on grant incomes have a decent life and can survive without relying on hand-me-outs.
“Jobs are very scarce these days and no one wants to go hungry.
“It’s very clear to us that corruption has destroyed our economy and these residents in Tembisa deserve a better life,” says Maimane.
Meanwhile Msimanga is confident of change coming to Ekurhuleni after the May 8 elections.
“We want to see everyone being employed and able to maintain the families they live with. We will make sure that there is visible change in the area, where all people will have access to jobs and live decent lives,” says Msimanga.
