DA is peddling falsehoods

The peddling of falsehoods is becoming the hallmark of opposition politics. If it is not Cope claiming so-called senior ANC members are deserting en masse to swell their ranks or distorting affirmative action, it is the DA being mendacious about the ANC's manifesto.

The peddling of falsehoods is becoming the hallmark of opposition politics. If it is not Cope claiming so-called senior ANC members are deserting en masse to swell their ranks or distorting affirmative action, it is the DA being mendacious about the ANC's manifesto.

True to its destructive form, the DA won't concede that the ANC has articulated its vision and wants us to believe a lie that the ANC has no plan.

Unless the DA provides concrete evidence, its assertion that "the vision of the ANC is that of a closed, patronage-based system for South Africa." will be treated as a figment of a fertile imagination.

It is a matter of public record that the ANC government has striven to open access to the majority, who have been denied not only socio-economic opportunities, but their birthright. It has also overseen an unprecedented economic growth that has made it possible that the dignity of our people is restored, more than 2,7 million houses with secure tenure built and more than 200000 sanitation buckets in formal settlements eradicated. It increased household electricity connections to more than 86 percent, increased access to sanitation from 48 to 73 percent and water supply from 59 to 86percent since 1994.
