The Democratic Alliance in KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday welcomed ANC Deputy Mayor in the uMngeni Municipality, Nompumelelo Buthelezi. This was made known in a statement made available to SurgeZirc SA.
The statement reads: “Motivated by the DA’s local manifesto and our track record in local government the Deputy Mayor has made the decision to join the DA in the uMngeni Municipality. The DA is only 9% away from winning this municipality.
“The DA is determined to bring real change to the people of the uMngeni municipality. Corruption, poor service delivery, and unemployment are destroying the lives and livelihoods of the residents of the KZN Midlands. The DA has a plan and a proven track record to turn things around and get things done.
“The decision of the deputy mayor to join the DA is an example to people that you do not have to be in an abusive relationship with one political party.
“You have the power to change your life through the ballot box. Residents of uMngeni are tired of 27 years of false promises and shattered dreams.
“On the 1st of November, the DA is ready to take control of the uMngeni Municipality and bring real hope and real change.”
