JOHANNESBURG - Democratic Alliance (DA) Leader Mmusi Maimane says it is clear that Johannesburg residents are ready for change and their weapon is the ballot box.

Maimane registered at the Allen Glen High School in Roodepoort yesterday, saying South Africans can't complain about the state of their municipality if they don't vote in the upcoming election.

He says this will be one of the most contested elections in post-apartheid South Africa.

Maimane made time to take some selfies with pupils at the high school where he matriculated in 1997 before sending out a clear message.

“Joburg can do with a new mayor. It can do with change. Part of why I came here today is a great opportunity this weekend for me to come and affirm that I want all South Africans to come and register.”

Maimane says in 1994 South Africans used their voice to implement change and the same applies this time around.

“People are saying genoeg is genoeg. They want change. They want a new government in place so we have to make a choice to register to vote for change.”

Today Maimane will be urging people to register to vote in Port Elizabeth.
