The following is an extract from a speech delivered by DA Mayoral Candidate for Nelson Mandela Bay, Athol Trollip, at the DA’s We Can Win Rally at the Missionvale Indoor Sports Centre, Nelson Mandela Bay, on Sunday 24 July 2016. Trollip was joined by DA Leader, Mmusi Maimane.
We are ten days from historic change in Nelson Mandela Bay. Momentum is building stronger than ever behind the DA to win Nelson Mandela Bay, and deliver the change we need to move forward again.
The DA can win, because we are ready to improve service delivery, to create jobs and to stop the corruption of Nelson Mandela Bay under the ANC.
Our offer is built on reconciliation, redress and progress. As the DA, as people of NMB, we are one.
We can win because of our offer, because more south Africans believe that the DA will deliver a better future.
The ANC is a party of the past, the DA is the party of the future.
That is why the ANC campaign is all about the past, and only the past, with no plans for the future. Zero plans from the ANC for the future, because they cannot create jobs, stop corruption or deliver services.
We have outnumbered our opponents in every way in this election campaign, and we will outnumber them when the votes are counted.
But make no mistake, every vote will count in this election.
Every person who knows that we need change, and who wants change must come out and vote for change.
The time for change is now, and it is time to vote out this ANC government that breaks its promises and wants to divide us on racial lines.
Its time to vote out the ANC of maladministration, of corruption and the creators of unemployment.
Unemployment is a crisis in Nelson Mandela Bay, brought to you by the ANC.
Gangsterism and crime is a crisis, brought to you by the ANC.
The housing shortage, and broken RDPs are a crisis, brought to you by the ANC.
And through this, the ANC has wasted more money in NMB than any other Metro. They have taken our money and wasted it, and spent our money on themselves.
We are going to come into government to do things properly.
Only the DA has the plans and the proof in our record of governance to bring change to NMB. We have made progress where we govern, and Nelson Mandela Bay deserves the same.
The DA can win Nelson Mandela Bay, if every voter comes out and votes for change.
There has never been a better chance to move Nelson Mandela Bay forward again, and the voters hold the power.
On 3 August 2016, vote DA for change in Nelson Mandela Bay.
