Addressing the media in Cape Town on Sunday morning, a visibly buoyant Maimane said the DA's Federal Council unanimously adopted the party’s manifesto which will officially be launched on February 23 at the Rand Stadium in Johannesburg.
"At the manifesto’s core is a compelling offer to build one South Africa for all where there’s a job in every home, our communities and streets are safe, our borders are secure, basic services are delivered to all, and corruption is eliminated," Maimane said.
He said the manifesto is clear on the matter of redress and empowerment.
