Democratic Alliance Federal leader John Steenhuisen today announced uMngeni mayor Chris Pappas as the DA’s KZN premier candidate for the 2024 national election.
Making the announcement on the steps of the Durban City Hall, Steenhuisen said that Pappas is a dynamic young leader who walks the walk and has made the uMngeni municipality a shining beacon on the hill while the rest of KZN lies in ruin.
The DA leader added that the time has come to kick the ANC out of KZN and that Chris Pappas was the man to lead that mission and provide hope where the ANC has only provided misery, hunger, maladministration, and poverty. The beacon of light on the hill in uMngeni could be the light that leads to change throughout the entire province.
Appealing to all South Africans, Steenhuisen added that citizens need to know that the power in this election will be with the registered. He said change will only happen when those who complain about the sewerage on the beaches, unemployment, corruption, and everything else that is wrong, register to vote.
It is time for citizens to take the power into their own hands and vote on election day for change and for hope and for the only party that can kick out the ANC and keep the EFF out.
