After careful consideration, the DA-led Western Cape government has decided that it is in the best interests of our residents to continue with Premier Helen Zille’s State of The Province Address as scheduled, despite the State of the Nation Address’ postponement.
This is a particularly trying time for the Western Cape Province and its people as we grapple with the worst drought since 1906. It is imperative that our State of the Province Address go ahead as planned, where the Premier will share vital and instrumental information pertaining to the drought.
We owe this to the people of the Western Cape, and we cannot be held hostage by ANC factionalism, which places the party above the interest of law abiding South Africans, or by a president who is unable to differentiate between his personal interest and that of his Oath to the people of our country.
As an efficient DA-led Western Cape, we owe it to the citizens of this province, that we place their interest before our party issues. The State of the Province is now, more than ever, of vital importance to our people.
