Leon will on Tuesday campaign in Durban’s predominantly Indian areas such as Phoenix and Chatsworth.
DA provincial leader Zwakele Mncwango said Leon’s campaign in the province was crucial.
“Any member who is campaigning is important. Due to time constraints he will only be in Chatsworth and Phoenix. He needs to be in other areas outside KZN,” said Mncwango.
Mncwango said the party had realised that it could increase its support due to former president Jacob Zuma no longer being at the helm of the ANC.
