Political Ideas / Achievements Goals & Ambitions for the country

As a member of parliament I have to serve the community diligently and put the interests of the country before my personal interests

I am prepared to dedicate my time and skills to the work of parliament in order to make positive contributions to move South Africa forward

I would like to see South Africa winning in addressing the triple challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality.

I was highly inspired by our late icon  Dr Nelson Mandela who dedicated most of his adult life fighting against the injustices of the past and serving and leading the people of this country.
