DA election slogan “a job in every home”

Mmusi Maimane presented the Democratic Alliance election manifesto at the week-end. 80 pages of promises but the best slogan of the election so far is “a job in every home“. Can we expect another layer to the  existing BBBEE employment scorecard criteria in the Western Cape (assuming the DA win again in the Western Cape) such as JIH for Job in Home. It will be interesting to see how they plan to implement this.  Featured photo Mmusi Mainame, Facebook.

“Fellow South Africans, in 1994, we had a dream. A dream of One South Africa where whatever our race, background or religion, we would be able to stand together as one, living free, happy and dignified lives. A dream where we would reduce the economic inequality in our country. A dream where we would realise the potential of our great nation, working together to make South Africa a beacon of hope and leader in the developing world.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) shares that dream. We live that dream. And we call that dream One South Africa for All. A South Africa where we come together because we are better together. A South Africa of the shared values of freedom, fairness, opportunity and diversity.

Tragically, that dream has not been realised. Successive ANC governments have forgotten the people and through gross corruption and empty promises, they have rid our country of hope. Not only do they not want to lead South Africa forward to our dream – they are utterly incapable of managing the real problems that South Africa faces.”

Now for the Table of Contents only.
