Where we govern

City of Cape Town

The DA-led Metro ranked no.1 by the 2016 Government Performance Index, is making real progress. More people have hope for finding a job here, than anywhere else in the country; and job-seekers will soon be able to ride for free on MyCiti busses (on weekdays during off-peak hours). Mayor Patricia de Lille’s R340-milliion Job Creation Fund equips students with the skills they need to find work. And R2.7 billion’s worth of the budget will go towards subsidising services, like water and electricity, for residents in poor communities.

This is the City of Cape Town’s vision for the term:

An Opportunity City

A city where entrepreneurs and investors can grow the economy and create jobs.

A Safe City

A city where people feel protected and where communities work with the police and other law enforcement agencies to keep our neighbourhoods and businesses free from violence and crime.

A Caring City

We want to keep making progress in a city where people know that their government cares for them, one that works to make basic services available to ALL residents.

An Inclusive City

Cape Town belongs to everyone who lives in it. Whilst we have made progress to realise this vision, there is still much work to be done to redress the wrongs of apartheid and break down barriers.

A Well-Run City

DA governments are known for being committed to transparent and clean management. The tender process is open to the public and those found guilty of corruption are shown the door.
