In his victory speech, Msimanga urged the 1000 delegates in attendance to focus on winning the province in next year’s general elections.

"The battle is never internally, but externally focused," Msimanga said. 

We will lose a great opportunity if we remain internally focused and allow for divisions to creep in, in the Democratic Alliance. Our job is carved for us. The people of Gauteng are demanding a change in leadership. They are demanding an end to infrastructure collapse, they are demanding for fairness in jobs. They are demanding that we open opportunities for all."

"We cannot do this, if our focus is inward looking instead of externally. This is what the people of Gauteng demands of us."

Msimanga believes the DA is well on its way to unseating the ANC during the 2024 elections. 

"The crucial challenge that lies ahead is to now implement our workable blueprint for government well in advance of the 2024 election, that will undo the ANC’s legacy in our province.

"It should incorporate the key steps to be taken to immediately stabilise and revitalise the administration. The blueprint must be a project and implementation plan. As leader, I will implement  the blueprint together with a transitional task team to express the DA’s manifesto in the Gauteng government."
