DA youth wing visits tomorrow’s voters
DA motivates youth to register for next year’s election.
KABOKWENI – The youth of around Manyeveni was in high spirit following the national youth leadership of the Democratic Alliance’s (DA) visit to the area last week.
It was part of the party’s national road-trip voter’s registration campaign, which has been to Limpopo, North West, Eastern Cape and the Western Cape.
The DA’s youth wing said through their visits to the different provinces, they had discovered that many young people did not have enough information about voting and the process of registering.
This has prompted the organisation to consider proposing plans to include voter’s registration on the education syllabus as many young people become confused when it comes to national and provincial elections.
“Through these visits we want to motivate the youth to register to vote in next year’s elections for the party that is ready to deliver services to them, and that is us,” said the national chairperson of the DA,Ms Mbali Ntuli.
She said the programme would continue to encourage young and old but would mainly focus on young people to vote next year.Ntuli said the organisation had launched the employment plan programme to help enhance the lives of many unemployed young people by means of wage subsidies, skills development and work programmes.
According to Lovejoy Dladla who has recently joined the DA, she is happy that the party has finally reached the area to experience their daily challenges first-hand.
“I have hope that the DA will help us to access available opportunities as the youth of Manyeveni.
“With the ANC we have to beg for everything but since the DA is here we know our lives will change for the better,” she said.
She added that the ANC has disappointed them in so many ways, after they had been faithful to the party for so many years.
The DA urged everyone to register and vote as they are ready to deliver.
