Call for Live Debate Among Gauteng Premier Candidates: RISE Mzansi's Challenge to Opponents

RISE Mzansi, alongside ActionSA, Economic Freedom Fighters, and Democratic Alliance, calls for a live, public debate among Gauteng Premier Candidates. Congratulations to Mr. Funzi Ngobeni (ActionSA), Mr. Mbuyiseni Ndlozi (EFF), and Mr. Solly Msimanga (DA) on your nominations. We are united in our commitment to provide new leadership for Gauteng, addressing critical issues such as safety, job creation, and service delivery.

Over the past five years, Gauteng has faced significant challenges. Despite efforts, murder cases have risen to 6,411, unemployment has surged to 39.3%, and governance remains unstable. Schools and hospitals are in disarray, lacking resources and plagued by violence and corruption. As residents prepare to vote, it's clear change is needed.

With the ANC's declining support, we invite you to join us in a 90-minute debate to discuss our visions and commitments for Gauteng's future. We urge the SA National Editors Forum to facilitate this crucial dialogue. Let's offer Gauteng voters a chance to make an informed decision on May 29, 2024.
