On Wednesday, 16 January 2019, DA leader, Mmusi Maimane, will lead thousands of South Africans on a march through the streets of Johannesburg which will culminate in the unveiling of a billboard that shows the tragic human cost of the ANC’s disastrous 24 years in government.
While the ANC has self-enriched itself over the years, there has been a literal body count of South Africans who fallen victims to their neglect and failure in government.
South Africans have been subjected to one of the worst governance periods under the ANC which has plunged the country into unacceptable levels of poverty and a crippling jobs crisis. Communities have become warzones, provision of basic services has come to a grinding halt, and millions of our children have been let down by a failing education system.
Maimne will be joined by DA Gauteng Premier Candidate, Solly Msimanga; Johannesburg Mayor, Herman Mashaba; Gauteng Shadow MEC for Health, Jack Bloom; Regional Chairperson, Heinrich Volmink; National Spokesperson, Refiloe Nt’sekhe; Provincial Leader, John Moodey; Federal Chairperson, Athol Trollip; Campaign Spokesperson, Solly Malatsi; Chief Whip, John Steenhuisen; Team One SA Spokesperson on Corruption, Phumzile van Damme; and Federal Youth Leader, Luyolo Mphithi.
