Where we govern

City of Cape Town

The City of Cape Town Metropolitan Municipality is ranked the best-run metro in the country according to Good Governance Africa’s 2016 Government Performance Index. Whilst there is still much to do to address the injustices of the past, the DA is making progress: more people have hope for finding a job, here, than in any other metro in SA, and the Mother City boasts consecutive clean audits thanks to its zero tolerance approach towards corruption.

This is our vision for the next 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.
