“As we celebrate the beginning of 2008 with hope and good resolutions, there can be no doubt that the election of Jacob Zuma as the ANC President has set the scene for the next crucial chapter in South Africa’s political development,” says Mayor and DA leader Helen Zille.

She goes onto say that 2008 will also be a year in which South Africa prepares for two extremely important events in the years that follow: the general election scheduled for 2009 (that may be held earlier) and the Soccer World Cup in 2010. Both these events are key to our country’s future, for better or for worse.

“So, 2008 will be a difficult year, filled with exciting challenges. May the festive season be a restful one, and may 2008 be blessed with health and prosperity.

“To those spending this time away, may you travel safely to your homes, and may you return to face the New Year with confidence and hope,” says Zille.
