JOHANNESBURG - The DA says the choice to launch its 2016 election manifesto in Gauteng is strategic.
The opposition party has set its sights on the province&39;s three metros – Ekurhuleni, Tshwane and Johannesburg.
The DA had some 20,000 people to attend the launch event at the Rand Stadium in Rosettenville, southern Johannesburg on Saturday.
In his speech, Maimane also listed what the party calls, the DA difference.
"If you elect the DA to govern your municipality, we will work hard to place housing developments close to education, close to work places, close to recreation facilities and close to public transport."
"The DA will work hard to speed up the delivery of title deeds in your municipality so that more South Africans can own the properties where they live."
"We will work hard to speed up the rollout of basic services. Because basic services – the provision of water, sanitation and electricity – is the coal face of local government.
