Cape Argus - - NATION - Agency (ANA) | African News

ETHEK­WINI Mu­nic­i­pal­ity coun­cil­lor and ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee mem­ber Zwakele Mncwango has been an­nounced as the DA’s choice for the po­si­tion of premier in KwaZulu-Natal for the 2019 elec­tions.

Mncwango also leads the of­fi­cial op­po­si­tion in the prov­ince.

DA leader Mmusi Maimane made the an­nounce­ment yes­ter­day at Oh­lange High School in Inanda. The first ANC pres­i­dent, John Lan­gal­ibalele Dube, founded the school in 1900.

Maimane said that Mncwango rep­re­sented “a new gen­er­a­tion of 21st-cen­tury lead­ers that stand for the val­ues of free­dom, fair­ness, op­por­tu­nity and di­ver­sity”, who were ready to lead the charge to re­move the fail­ing and cor­rupt ANC-led gov­ern­ment.
