Daniel Western Cape ear Mr Manuel, I think that you would feel more comfortable in the DA because there are no hidden agendas, nepotism or back-stabbing. You can trust the leaders of the DA to govern the Western Cape and its constituencies in other provinces. The DA prioritises the interests of its voters. You are most welcome in the DA, Trevor.

UVic Hugo Gauteng usiness cannot rally behind the decisions of a president when it is patently clear that such decisions are meant to entrench the corrupt dealings of the president. The ruling party is duty-bound to fire this president. Or is it party to such deviousness?
