JOHANNESBURG - Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane says people in Tshwane can't trust the African National Congress (ANC) to deliver services because all its leaders are concerned about is fighting against each other.

Maimane was addressing supporters at the 'We Can Win Tshwane' rally at Freedom Park.

Several weeks ago, residents protested in areas around Tshwane against the appointment of Thoko Didiza as the ANC's mayoral candidate, leading to property being burnt, people killed and shops looted.

Maimane says this is what the ANC is capable of.

"Because their house is divided, they can't deliver for the people of Tshwane."

Maimane says if the people of Tshwane want stability they must vote for the DA.

"We are here to say that we will bring Solly Msimang because it is always about the people and we will service the people of this community."

The DA has marked an 11-day countdown to elections, promising to change the lives of residents in Tshwane, if it comes into power next month.

Meanwhile, ANC veterans Mavuso Msimang and Tokyo Sexwale have called on South Africans to trust the ANC in the upcoming local government elections and not focus on the challenges it's facing, as they will be resolved after the polls.

The pair joined the Gauteng ANC in door-to-door campaigns in Soweto today.
