Johannesburg - Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane on Friday promised youths jobs in Diepsloot north of Johannesburg - but only if they vote for his party and it wins the elections in May.
“Across the country, our crucial focus is to build jobs, allow economic activities to take place and we want to achieve the dream of making sure that there is a job in every home,” said Maimane.
He was accompanied on his visit by DA Gauteng premier candidate, Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga, and Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba.
The DA leaders engaged with about 50 youngsters at the recently launched Diepsloot Opportunity Centre.
Maimane said the opportunity centre in the area was a symbol of what the DA can do for the people of the province and the country. He claimed that of all the jobs that were created in South Africa last year, more than 60 percent of them were created in areas where the DA governs.
