DA election campaign causes a stir

The DA is getting a lot of flack online following their latest election campaign, which uses the hashtag #The ANC is Killing Us. Yesterday, DA supporters in Johannesburg marched to unveil a billboard in memory of the fallen victims of Marikana, Life Esidimeni and for the children who have died in pit toilets.
The party claimed that the ANC was the cause of these tragedies and also blamed the party for crime-related deaths in South Africa.

On social media, the public were highly critical of the DA, with some accusing the party of using these tragedies for political gain. The ANC will now consider reporting the matter to The Independent Electoral Commission’s Electoral Court for a decision.

On line is political commentator Solly Moeng, Managing Director of DonValley
