“The needs of the Eastern Cape and Nelson Mandela Bay” will feature early on in Tuesday’s debate on the State of the Nation Address.

The Democratic Alliance’s mayoral candidate for the metro‚ Athol Trollip‚ said he will raise these – and the African National Congress’ “ongoing neglect of this beautiful part of South Africa” — when he takes the podium in the National Assembly.

Trollip on Tuesday morning announced that he has got a good slot and “will be the second speaker for the DA‚ after federal leader‚ Mmusi Maimane”.

“In last Thursday’s State of the Nation Address‚ President (Jacob) Zuma provided no hope to the 8.3-million jobless South Africans‚ and neglected to account for his government’s failure to create jobs and grow the economy.”

“In all of Trollip’s interactions with thousands of residents of the Eastern Cape‚ and particularly Nelson Mandela Bay‚ the call is clear: Jobs are desperately needed‚ crime must be combatted and services must be delivered‚” a statement said.

“Yet President Zuma said nothing that will give our people any hope of jobs‚ safety and services.”
