DA To Test The Effectiveness Of The Public Transport System In The City Of Johannesburg

Today, Friday 15 July, DA Johannesburg Mayoral Candidate, Herman Mashaba, will put the public transport system in Johannesburg to the test.

Five teams of volunteers will use different modes of transport to get to Orange Farm and at the end point, Mr Mashaba, will deliver his plans on how to turn the system around so that we have an effective and safe public transport system in the city.

These teams will be led by the DA Gauteng Leader, John Moodey MPL, DA Chief Whip in the Gauteng Legislature, Mike Moriarty MPL, DA Johannesburg Regional Leader, Khume Ramulifho MPL, DA Shadow Deputy Minister of Health, Henrich Volmink MP, DA Shadow Deputy Minister of Economic Development, Patrick Atkinson MP.

Transport is the engine of the economy as the majority of Joburg citizens rely on it to get to work and school.

The DA is serious about job creation in the city because if Johannesburg works, South Africa works.

Date: Friday 15 July

Time: 10h30

Meeting place: KFC, Eyethu Mall, corner of Link Street and Palm Street, Orange Farm

There will be ample opportunity for interviews and photographs. Members of the media are invited.
