DA: Makhura’s Sopa was ‘inconsistent and misleading’
The DA, however, commended Makhura on taking a firm stance against racism and xenophobia.
JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Gauteng has called Premier David Makhura's State of the Province Address (Sopa) "inconsistent and misleading".
Makhura delivered his speech in Sebokeng earlier today.
He was interrupted by Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members chanting 'e-tolls must fall'.
While the EFF walked out of the address, the DA says his speech was unimpressive.
The DA's Ashol Sarupen says, "In one place he would say they are doing wonderfully in housing then later on he says, in the same speech, that their housing delivery is not up to scratch. He contradicts himself in his own speech."
He, however, commended Makhura on taking a firm stance against racism and xenophobia.
"It's the most responsible thing I have heard come out from government leadership. It didn't use as political football - there wasn't an electioneering thing. Kudos to him, it's something that we must deal with."
Rivonia trialist Ahmed Kathrada attended the Sopa, he applauded Makhura on his good feedback.
