From the Mail & Guardian, about the moderate-liberal politician: "The dream of former president Nelson Mandela is fading, the DA's newly elected deputy federal chairperson Mmusi Maimane said on Saturday. "When government spends R250-million [US$23 million] on a house for one person, but doesn't build houses for this community, that dream fades,' he said at a by-election rally in the Eastern Cape's Lukhanji municipality. Maimane was referring to the multi-million rand upgrade and renovations to President Jacob Zuma's homestead in Nkandla, KwaZulu-Natal."
More about the Democratic Alliance party member: "'Let's all agree that we need a government that works. Let's all agree that we need a government that doesn't steal from the people,' he said. 'Let's all agree that we need a government that cares more about the people than about its own welfare. Let's all agree that we need a government that grows the economy, so that poor people can find jobs.'"
