As the ANC lays out its promises for change over the next five years — its main opposition — the democratic alliance has previewed its 2014 election manifesto.

Over 50 thousand people packed Mbombela stadium in Nelspruit at the weekend — to hear the ruling party’s promises.

The ANC vowed to create 6 million job opportunities by 2019 and to speed up land redistribution.

Democratic Alliance Member of Parliament Tim Harris says job creation, economic growth, training and education rather than wealth distribution will be the foundation of his party’s economic policies.

He’s called the ANC’s promises a mere bluff , he carried on to say the ANC under the leadership of president Jacob Zuma was failing citizens across the country.

During the manifesto launch the party focused on two key areas, which included creating jobs and eliminating corruption, emphasis was also placed on the need of a law to prevent government officials of doing business with the state as well as opening tender committee meetings to the public.

DA’s candidate for Gauteng Premier Mmusi Maimane called for those who booed Zuma during former president nelson Mandela’s memorial service in December to follow through with their dissatisfaction at the polls.
