GAUTENG – The Democratic Alliance (DA) has opened its new headquarters in Gauteng named “Nkululeko House” which means Freedom House in English on Wednesday.
“Today we officially open the Democratic Alliance’s new Campaign Headquarters (HQ) here in the heart of Gauteng, as we intensify the battle for victory in this province ahead of next year’s General Elections,” said DA leader Mmusi Maimane.
According to the DA, the building will serve as the political and operational headquarters of the party leading up to 2019 and beyond.
The party said it is excited to open new headquarters as it let go of the myth that the party is a ‘regional party’; “the DA’s growth over the past few years has shattered the myth that the DA is a “regional party”, and this ought to be reflected in our operational structure, we are now well and truly a party for all South Africans, with a national footprint in towns, cities and provinces across the nation,” said the DA.
“Nkululeko House will now be the party’s Campaign HQ, and home to large contingent of the DA’s Federal staff structures including the National Campaign “War Room”, the Polling and Research Department, the National Call Centre, the Leader’s Office, the Gauteng Provincial Office, and the party’s Corporate Services Directorate.”
