Tomorrow, 17 April 2019, the Democratic Alliance (DA) Gauteng Premier Candidate, Solly Msimanga, the DA Gauteng Provincial Leader, John Moodey, and DA Team One SA Spokesperson on Basic Services, Makashule Gana, will deliver public objections of the ANC party lists to Luthuli House.
Several candidates on the ANC’s list have been implicated in crimes ranging from corruption and maladministration, to sexual assault. As such, thousands of South Africans have lodged their objections through the DA’s Prison Not Parliament website. These objections will be hand delivered to Luthuli House.
Over the weekend, reports emerged that the ANC’s own Integrity Commission reportedly recommended the removal of, among others, David Mabuza and Gwede Mantashe. Regardless of this fact, the ANC intends to send their list of criminals, failed public representatives, corruption-tainted officials and unrepentant thieves to Parliament after Election 2019. These are people who have stolen money from citizens, while corrupting government and capturing the state.
It is clear that the governing party is incapable of change with the same cast of characters. The people of South Africa will be able to prevent these rogue characters from being in Parliament by voting for change come May 8.
