DA Soweto West Constituency vocal on racism and jobs - featured on Soweto TV

My constituency, Soweto West, marched against racism and unemployment in Protea Glen last Saturday. We were joined by a crew from Soweto TV who produced a 2 minute clip which was aired on the Monday evening and Tuesday morning news bulletins.

Then on Tuesday our Constituency  Secretary, Billy Nyaku, was interviewed on the News and Views show which aired that evening. You can see the interview here.

In both segments, we were vocal about the DA's position on racism and the need to create jobs.

The DA abhors the racist comments prevalent in social media this past week and will do all it can to root out racist tendencies in the Party.

The DA Jobs Campaign, which runs during January, highlights the Party’s five-point plan to reduce the levels of unemployment in South Africa:

·         Invest in infrastructure
·         Improve education
·         Change labour laws
·         Reward businesses that create jobs
·         Create a nation of entrepreneurs

A DA-led government would immediately implement policies to put our five-point plan into action. With local government elections taking place later this year, the DA will be announcing its manifesto for creating jobs in Johannesburg, particularly focusing on the townships where the effects of high unemployment are felt the most.
