The Democratic Alliance (DA) goes into this weekend's Federal Congress in Tshwane with much focus ahead of the gathering being on issues of race and diversity.
Speaking to Thembekile Mrototo on The Midday Report, DA Gauteng MPL Makashule Gana said what is at stake when they meet over the weekend, is the future of the country.
We are going to spend time discussing our offer to South Africa, and that is what will be occupying our mind when we are there. Unfortunately, others are more interested in the resolutions and amendments to the conference which is understandable. But my interest going into this congress is how do we offer South Africans a better alternative than what's prevalent at the moment.— Makashule Gana, DA Gauteng MPL
Gana said he is amazed that there is only now an excitement around diversity amongst some members of the party. As a party, the DA has been at the forefront of pushing for diversity as a value that exists and it is one that they value as a party, he says.
