"The the next government we are going to make is yours and you must make the right decision. Get your priorities right, whether you want to elect leaders who create positions or who create jobs," the DP added before a man walked through the crowd, past his security and climbed on top of his vehicle.

"We lack a close university and a school where our children can access using a bicycle."
