NELSON MANDELA BAY COALITION A HUGE SUCCESS

This is according to the Democratic Alliance’s provincial leader for the Eastern Cape, Nqaba Bhanga. The coalition in the city is led by the DA.

Bhanga issued a statement on Monday, saying that the coalition “remains united and focused on delivering services to the people of the city”.
