CAPE TOWN - The Economic Freedom Fighters ( EFF) have accused the Democratic Alliance ( DA)-run Western Cape government of backtracking on its job creation promises.

The EFF says in the run up to the 7 May election the DA undertook to create 6 million real jobs.

Reacting to Premier Helen Zille's State of the Province address yesterday, the EFF says no clear plan was outlined on where the millions of job opportunities will come from.

In her address, Zille said she agrees with President Zuma that job-creation is the most effective way of fighting poverty.

The EFF's Nazier Paulsen says, "In the run up to the elections, a big ad in the DA was, the DA will create 6 million real jobs. Yesterday at the State of the Province address she said it's not government's responsibility to create jobs. I think the voters have been betrayed once again."
