DA member Solly Msimanga says ahead of the federal congress, the DA should rethink their strategies for the party.

The Democratic Alliance is preparing for it's federal congress in Tshwane next month.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa on the Breakfast Show, DA member Solly Msimanga says the party cannot be a 'one-man-show' and has always believed the party has over burdened leader Mmusi Maimane.

We seem to be over burdening our leader, he is the one that is always caring the message. We do have leadership and a group a leaders that should be used more to ensure that we reach more communities, ensuring that we are able to talk to as many people as we should.

Solly Msimanga, DA member

I think going into the federal congress we need to rethink and re-look at at strategy we have are employing if we are serious about 2019.

Solly Msimanga, DA member

Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Athol Trollip, Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga, DA MPand Free State chairperson Annelie Lotriet are all vying for the federal chairperson position.

Msimang says the DA should start focusing on what it has to offer the people rather than the shortcomings of the ANC.

We cannot continuously talk about the ANC and it's failures. Everybody knows the shortcoming of the ANC. It's all about what we have been able to do; what we are doing and what we plan on doing. That should be the most key focus of the DA going forward.

Solly Msimanga, DA member

The congress is held every three years and 2018 is expected to be the largest the party has ever hosted with over 2 000 delegates due to attend.

Listen to the other issues Msimanga says the DA should focus on:
