DA leader Mmusi Maimane spoke at the party's Gauteng provincial council meeting on Friday in Centurion. It was during his speech that he made a promise to the people of South Africa.
He said that if the party won the province in next year's general elections then they would "clean up" the provincial government.
Briefly.co.za learned that in order to do this, Maimane urged the DA members in Gauteng to rally behind the person who was selected to contest the premiership in the 2019 elections according to ewn.co.za.
“When we take over Gauteng, we’ve got a lot of work to do. We have to fight against things like Life Esidimeni where the ANC killed 140 people.”
Nine members have put their names forward as candidates for the premiership which is the most applications the party has received in any province.
Among those who wish to contest are Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga and national spokesperson Refiloe Nt'sekhe.
Maimane said that he had no aspirations to become a premier of any province and he had not joined politics for positions. His job is to get the people of South Africa to trust the DA with the future of the country.
