In photos: DA ready to rain jobs

Democratic Alliance candidate for Gauteng premier Mmusi Maimane led around 1,000 supporters through Johannesburg on Wednesday on a march to promote the DA’s proposals on jobs. Among other plans, the DA wants to give people title deeds to their homes and rent properties to businesses for R1 to promote growth. GREG NICOLSON was there for the pictures.


Maimane sings with DA members from a truck outside the Gauteng premier’s office, later telling the premier to pack her things along with other ANC members because the elections will put the DA in power.
