Johannesburg - Throngs of Democratic Alliance supporters were making their way to Dobsonville Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg on Saturday morning for the DA's final elections rally ahead of the May 8 national and provincial elections.
The venue for the "Phetogo Rally" is in party leader Mmusi Maimane's parental hometown. The stadium seats 24,000 people.
The young and old supporters clad in blue party regalia arrived at the stadium in minibus taxis, buses, and cars. They were entertained by popular musicians, including Ricky Rick, Tamara Dey, and Gqom music star TDL Macasette.
Montle Mosala, a mother of two, said she believed the DA would bring about change in her West Rand region.
''We are tired of thieves stealing our taxes. I am a mother as you can see, but never worked in my entire life so far. There are no jobs, we are tired of water cuts and lack of electricity... I am done voting for people who do not deliver.''
