A debate planned for this week with a major national television network has been canned because the ANC’s Danny Jordaan refuses to debate and answer to the people.
What is Danny Jordaan scared of; no good stories to tell, no delivery successes during his mayorship, a $10million FIFA scandal, his allegiance to Jacob Zuma?
A worrying trend has developed in the NMB Mayor’s office, with Jordaan often ditching important meetings without notice, sometimes leading to violent protests as we saw in Colchester 12 days ago.
Broken promises are piling up under Mayor Jordaan’s leadership and he is hiding from accountability.
I have always said that I am willing and ready to answer to the people of South Africa, just as I was for this proposed debate. I confirmed my attendance at the debate.
The ANC is in turmoil in NMB as they are yet to officially announce their mayoral candidate or any of their councillor candidates for the 2016 local elections, having missed many of their own announcement deadlines, as repetitively promised by national spokesperson, Zizi Kodwa.
As a Mayoral Candidate for Nelson Mandela Bay, I will debate any party leadership on the DA’s plans to bring change to the Bay; change that improves service delivery, cuts corruption and creates jobs.
As such, my offer to Mayor Jordaan remains; let’s debate service delivery and the fight against corruption, Mayor Jordaan. Let’s give the people the opportunity to decide who they want to be their Mayor by holding a public debate.
Over the last 7 months of my campaign for Nelson Mandela Bay, I have criss-crossed this municipality, engaging with thousands of residents, all of whom agree on one thing: we are ready for change as a Metro.
I have taken the DA’s strong and comprehensive vision to every corner of this municipality; a vision that is premised on honesty, integrity and accountability.
The DA is ready to govern in Nelson Mandela Bay, so that accountability, integrity and delivery be the foundation on which this government functions.
