A tweep with the handle @Zamie8909 posted he would be backing the Democratic Alliance (DA), which he believes was the only party who would change the country.
The motivational speaker for LGTBI talked about how he felt the DA could benefit the country.
"#DACongress2018 as a young black South African man I'm happy and proud to say I'll be joining the DA like tomorrow or Monday. I see change and a brighter future and greater delivery even safer and protection in them.", he posted on Twitter.
But, his tweet received ton of backlash from presumed ANC and EFF supporters, who called him a sell-out and a fool. The poor guy had to defend himself and the DA against haters.
Only a few people stood up for him, saying he is making the right decision.
