By Cllr Bongani Baloyi, DA Executive Mayor of Midvaal Local Municipality:
Today I officially welcomed Amelia Tsukudu to the DA as a member and activist.
More and more people across Midvaal are reaching out to me pledging their support to the DA and our campaign to retain Midvaal with an increased majority.
It is encouraging to see the quality and calibre of activists and members such as Amelia that is joining our ranks. Amelia is currently a member and the treasure of SANCO (South African National Civic Organisation) Sedibeng Region.
Amelia has been an ANC supporter for the last 30 years, but has come to realise that the ANC cannot deliver a better economy and better society for South-Africa anymore.
Amelia will be an activist in the Midvaal area and share her skills and expertise to help spread the message of DA delivery to all the people.
- Midvaal has the lowest unemployment rate in Gauteng 18,8% much lower than the provincial average of 28,6%.
- The Municipal Productivity Index, a survey of 226 municipalities across the country, ranked Midvaal first in Gauteng and 6th in the country for its response to poverty, access to basic services and municipal finances.
- Also won the award for “The institution doing the most to clean the environment” in the 2014 Sedibeng Regional Survey Business Excellence Awards, conducted by PMR Africa.
With the 2016 Local Government Elections drawing closer, it is becoming clearer that more and more South-Africans wants a working economy, corruption free society and effective service delivery which the DA provides.
