The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Ugu South is proud to announce that Alan Bosch has been selected as our candidate for the upcoming Ray Nkonyeni Municipality ward 2 by-election.

Ward 2 encompasses the areas of Margate Beach, Ramsgate and Southbroom North and voters will go to the polls on 11 November 2020.

As the Democratic Alliance, we want to thank our previous DA ward 2 Councillor, Dave Watson, for his dedication, hard work and passion to all residents and commitment to quality service delivery.

In addition, he has been a loyal member of the Democratic Alliance and we wish him well in his business venture.

Normally a by-election takes place within 90 days of a vacancy being declared. However, this by-election was postponed due to Covid-19 Lockdown.

During this period, the DA temporarily allocated PR Councillor Yvonne Booysen to the ward to ensure residents have access to services during the Lockdown period. She has done a great job informing and serving residents.

Alan Bosch previously worked for Anglo American, LTA and in the motor trade. He managed the Siemens Cellular Handset Business for Southern Africa in Johannesburg.

He moved on to become the Managing Director for Siemens operations in Tanzania and later the CEO of Siemens Kenyan operations. He has now retired from Siemens and is a proud South Coast resident. He is an active member on the Uvongo CPF and local DOT Transport Committee.

 Alan and the Democratic Alliance make the following commitments:

– Constant vigilance and monitoring of infrastructure maintenance to ensure high standards

– Monitoring the delivery of quality service delivery

– Pressing forward the development of business and social initiatives within the council to drive ward improvements

– Continue fighting to improve water and sewage delivery

– Continue regular community engagements

We call on voters in Ray Nkonyeni Municipality ward 2 to come out in their numbers on 11 November 2020. They can show their continued support for the Democratic Alliance and Alan Bosch to allow us to continue to fight for your services.
