“As a caring government we have expanded Social Development services to the disabled, our youth, the elderly and all those in need of protection, substance-abuse  and counselling”

In my first 100 days I would like to ensure that I meet the dedicated team entrusted to take care of our communities and their needs. Focus areas will include Gender Based Violence and the scourge of substance abuse.  ECD, Youth, people with Disabilities and the elderly will also be prioritised. 

Together with all stakeholders we can strive for social inclusion and create spaces for meaningful engagement to improve the lives of citizens in the Western Cape.
