“These include waste collection, pothole fixing, grass cutting, human settlement and social development issues, and all aspects of ensuring that residents of the city are taken care of,” said Villakazi.
In response to a question about the way people reacted to the campaign, Vilakazi said, “The people were very honest and upfront with us. We appreciate the criticism and guidance they provided on their approach.
Moreover, their party is doing its best to address the needs of the people, including job opportunities, fairness, and leveling the playing field.
