1000 welcome DA in campaign first

"TODAY is an unforgettable day – we made history in Kwazakhele."

This was said by DA premier candidate and provincial leader Athol Trollip as the party, eager to gain more ground among black voters, held its first political rally in the Port Elizabeth township yesterday.

"I will never forget this day," he said. The colourful "Together for Jobs" march through Mavuso Road ended at the Lilian Ngoyi Sports Centre, where Trollip, former Eastern Cape premier Nosimo Balindlela and Nqura constituency leader Nqaba Bhanga addressed more than 1000 residents.

Balindlela, the Amathole constituency director, was a favourite with the singing, dancing crowd. - Cindy Preller
