Premier Helen Zille will deliver her final State of the Province Address (Sopa) at the Western Cape Provincial Parliament on Friday.
The ANC in the Western Cape has encouraged residents from across Cape Town to occupy Wale Street to hear “the real state of the Western Cape government under the administration of the DA.”
Premier Zille is expected to outline the Western Cape government’s achievements, progress on Provincial Strategic Plan (PSP) among other key issues.
Ebrahim Rasool, ANC Western Cape head of elections, said the ANC plans to launch its manifesto and announce its readiness to govern the province.
Speaking at a conference held at Constitution House, Cape Town he said:
“The idea is that from 9:30 on Friday morning outside the provincial legislature, the real state of the province will be described and the African National Congress will launch its manifesto and announce itself ready to govern the Western Cape after the 8 of May.”
ANC provincial secretary, Faiez Jacobs, who also attended the conference said: “This year we are going to demonstrate with the people of the Western Cape the real state of our province and it is going to be not a whitewash…”
“Eviction is a big thing, they evicting everybody, they evicting Safa at Athlone, they evicting our farmworkers, they evicting our people at Bokaap, they evicting everybody. It’s now the time for the DA to be evicted, so the people of Cape Town will come and evict them. They have messed up on water, they haven’t submitted any water plans, housing has been failed and the list goes on,”he added.
