CAPE TOWN - The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Cape Town says it plans to prioritise community safety, as well as create more jobs for the youth and to end apartheid spatial planning.
The party's mayoral candidate for Cape Town Patricia de Lille today presented the DA's Cape Town Manifesto in which she outlined its five-pillar campaign.

The mayoral candidate says the party has been able to achieve some of these but the current manifesto is a continuation of these promises.
"We've demonstrated good faith to the electorate and so we are running again based on our record of the past five years. But we are also running on a plan for the future of our city."

De Lille says over the next five years, DA will ensure law enforcement uses technology, CCTV cameras in particular, to fight crime.
She adds that the administration has plans to build low-cost housing closer to the Cape Town CBD and to public transport nodes.
