The affordable education loan option
Johannesburg - Heritage should be that of education, health care and safety the Democratic Alliance's Gauteng premier candidate, Mmusi Maimane, said on Tuesday.
“Our challenge is to create the environment where the heritage of excellent education, quality health care and personal safety, no matter where we come from, no matter our position in life,” Maimaine said at one of his stops on the 'Believe Bus Tour' in Dobsonville, Soweto.
Maimane spoke about the country's heritage and what its diversity meant for South Africans.
“I believe that we can create hundreds of thousands of jobs. We can give every person a foothold onto the ladder of success. This ladder will not help people to get ahead when it is only available to the politically connected. No, that is not freedom. Tenders to family and friends do not amount to a ladder.”
He intended to inject business opportunities and growth to the province and create jobs that benefit every person in the province.
“That is a heritage worth fighting for. That is a heritage that I want to see become a reality in Gauteng.
“We must bridge the gap of inequality. The heritage we will leave must be one of opportunity for all of our children,” said Maimane.
