Hankey was blue yesterday as the Democratic Alliance held a rally in the town which included a march through the suburbs and ended with a mass town hall meeting.
Close to 1000 people gathered near the Spar in Hankey to march with Member of Parliament Malcolm Figg, Kouga Mayor Horatio Hendricks as well as other Kouga Councillors.
The march ended up in Stofwolk after being joined by hundreds more people and being escorted by the local Police and Traffic Department.
At the town hall meeting, Mayor Horatio Hendricks said that the DA is the only party for all South Africans and the only party with a proven track record in governance that ensured better service delivery to all South Africans.
“The DA led Kouga Municipality is rolling out wheelie bins to all residents of Hankey so that the collection of waste and rubbish can be done more effectively,” said Hendricks.
“We are installing bulk infrastructure to be able to build more houses for the poor and have even bought land in Humansdorp and Thornhill to facilitate future housing developments,” added Hendricks.
The DA will make sure a national government prioritizes an honest, professional Police Force that protects the residents of South Africa said Member of Parliament Malcolm Figg who also addressed the crowd at the Vasumzi Landu Hall in Hankey.
“We cannot continue with a national government under the ANC that just steals the money and doesnt deliver services to all South Africans,” said Figg.
The National and Provincial election takes place on 8 May 2019.
