- Mmusi Maimane called on South Africans of all races and creeds to come together during this election
- He added that he was proud to be a part of the DA
- Helen Zille also urged DA supporters to mobilise, with the election around the corner
DA leader Mmusi Maimane urged South Africans to vote for a party that could bring South Africans of all backgrounds together.
He made the remarks while giving a speech at the DA's final Western Cape rally.
Helen Zille also spoke at the event, where she endorsed her successor as the party's Western Cape premier candidate, Alan Winde.
Maimane said he was proud to be a DA member, adding that he believed in the party's ability to bring people together.
"Black, white, Indian and coloured can work together," he said.
He ended his address with a rallying cry for South Africans to unite. He said that diverse people could work together if they share a common goal of building a better future, according to Eyewitness News.
Maimane also described this year's election as fundamentally being a choice between politicians who steal and politicians who want to serve South Africa, Briefly.co.za has gathered.
Helen Zille spoke on similar themes, and also finished her speech by calling on DA supporters to mobilise in order to ensure that the party retained control of the Western Cape, the DA's flagship province.
She said people needed to vote in their numbers so that an ANC-EFF coalition did not take power.
"Be true to the blue," she said.
