TimesLIVE reported that the DA’s plan is to create a dedicated anti-corruption unit which will seek to eliminate the maladministration and looting practiced by many politicians currently in power.
Msimanga went on to explain that honesty and accountability in SA’s government would be achieved by:
"Firing corrupt officials and blacklisting them from future public employment, implementing a transparent and accountable tender system and procurement process."
The former Tshwane mayor also outlined the focus that would be put on skill development and work experience, in order to make sure that young South Africans find jobs that match their experience and skillset.
Briefly.co.za gleaned that, in terms of land reform, Msimanga said that, if elected, he would want Gauteng to adopt the Western Cape model used.
This means that, "The DA will establish a prosperity opportunity fund to release government property to suitable beneficiaries, develop an upgrade plan for each informal settlement in Gauteng which provides residents with security of tenure and implement a rapid upgrade for all hostels."
Msimanga urged attendees to vote DA, in order to “effect greater change” in the Gauteng province.
