The African National Congress (ANC) has elected Nelly Dube to contest for the Ward 8 councillor seat. Nelly is Branch Secretary and Secretary of the Women’s League.
The ANC’s manifesto has highlighted that although the party has done a lot of work in the past two decades since the dawn of Democracy, a lot has to be done to ensure that communities live better lives.
According to the party, to improve the quality of leadership in local government, the ANC has done things differently and better this time, by improving consultation and oversight by involving communities in the selection of their ward candidates.
From that promise, Dube says that by having meetings with residents constantly, and keeping them updated with issues that at hand or will be coming.
If she is successful in her campaign, Dube has plans to improve lives in her community.
“I would develop projects for the youth, prioritize healthcare for elders and assist lower-income families with food parcels,” she explained.
In preparation towards the local government elections, Dube has done a lot to promote her campaign alongside other councillor candidates in Lesedi.
They have done door-to-door visits, loud-hailing in the streets, fundraising car-wash and seeking donations for food parcels to be given to the poor.
The party has also used social media and word of mouth to extend their support to potential voters.
Apart from her political activism, Dube is planning with project to promote unity in the community.
