Mmusi Maimane's mother believes her son will become the president of the country following today’s elections. Ethel Maimane, who voted in Soweto, said she is confident Maimane will lead the DA to victory.
Maimane and his mother voted at the Presbyterian Church polling station in Dobsonville, Soweto. She said that she believed that change is here.
Speaking to the media after voting, Maimane asked the nation to give his party a five-year contract to prove that it can bring change. This change included at least one job per household.
“I’m saying, to even ANC voters sitting at home, choose your hopes and not your fears. Come out today and vote for change"
He reiterated that he was not asking ANC voters to leave their party but to simply vote differently today. Maimane said that the DA is the only party that does not see colour and accommodates all races.
“We’re the only party that can grow in Sandton as we will in Alex and this election will pro that. I can guarantee you now, when the polls are being counted, you will see a growth of the DA in every province, in communities people never thought the DA would grow in. Because we will prove that actually black people and white people want to work together."
