South Africa faces a new threat 14 years after the first democratic election, Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille said on Saturday.
Hundreds gathered to hear Zille speak at the Freedom Day celebrations at the Molweni Community Hall, 90km outside Durban.
"The threat is a ruling party that believes it is more important than the Constitution.
"It is a party that believes it will rule until Jesus comes," said Zille.
She said that the ANC wanted to control the media, politicians, parliament and crime fighting bodies like the Scorpions. - Sapa
