The ANC and the DA might have been forgiven for accusing each other of trying to get more votes by delivering pizza to voters standing in a queue in Cape Town. But it was actually a clever advertising ploy by Mr Delivery designed to “showcase their commitment to delivering faster and hotter than ever” that saw voters eating fresh hot pizza while waiting to make their X.
Mr Delivery decided to unveil its “new manifesto” yesterday, which pledged “better service delivery” to the public.
The Jan van Riebeeck High School voting station in Gardens, Cape Town was the site of the service delivery action. Armed with posters, placards, an election manifesto and pizzas from one of their contracted restaurants, directors David Chait and Alon Rom, along with a team of campaigners pledged to deliver, as promised, faster and hotter than ever.
Playing the part of the consummate politician, Chait said, “We at Mr Delivery promise better service delivery for all and the municipal elections are a great opportunity for Mr Delivery to unveil its manifesto to improve its services to the public in a light hearted manner.”
This party isn’t afraid to get rid of non-performing councillors. A key part of the campaign included the very public ‘firing’ of the long time chef in the company’s logo to herald the change in ownership and the focus on customer service delivery.
The Mr Delivery Party showcased at the event is an interactive social media competition where people stand a chance to win a party for themselves and nine friends at a cost of R10 000 sponsored by Mr Delivery. To enter the competition, go to //www.facebook.com/MrDeliverySA.
