DA MPL says there is no magical programme or fancy plan that can save the province

It is time the NC changes the channel on ANC governance

24 February 2022

Note to Editors: The following is an extract from the True State of the Province Address, recorded by DA Provincial Leader of the Northern Cape, Harold McGluwa MPL, along the banks of the Orange River. Please find attached soundbites in English & Afrikaans from Harold McGluwa, MPL. See pics here and here

The Northern Cape is in absolute tatters and the sad truth is that there is no magical programme or fancy plan to be implemented by the Premier, Dr Zamani Saul, that can save it. Instead, only by changing channels from the ANC’s Armageddon movie to the success story of the Democratic Alliance (DA), can we save this province.

The True State of the Northern Cape is far worse and even more unbelievable than anything you might see on an episode of “Ripley’s Believe it or Not”:

· Afterall, who would believe that in a policing precinct as extensive as Jan Kempdorp, only one out of 25 police vehicles are operational?

–>

· Criminals are using the same modus operandi at the same location, time after time. They rob and even hijack people, like in the vicinity of the taxi rank in Kuruman, yet police fail to make any arrests.

· Drunk drivers cause accidents, at great cost to the economy and to lives, yet they are not investigated or prosecuted.

· A sewage puddle was left since 2016 to grow into a dam that now engulfs both sides of a main economic road.

· There is a road in Kakamas literally left with only a G-string sized sliver of tar covering it, and roads filled with potholes in Kimberley, despite a R500 million investment in Sol Plaatje’s infrastructure and inferior patching. And they continue to grow.
