The ANC's "let them eat cake" attitude left South Africans less than impressed. While the ruling party hopes to win more votes with their donation, it looks like they're pushing away more voters with their actions.
The African National Congress has revealed their plan to donate their birthday cakes to orphanages, old age homes and similar institutions next week when they celebrate their 107th birthday.
The event is expected to begin on the 8th of January at multiple locations across the province of KZN, as reported on earlier by Briefly.co.za.
The celebrations will run until the 13th of January, concluding with a voter registration beach party.
However, South Africans are not impressed. In fact, many South Africans are upset with the ruling party.
According to a report by IOL News, the issue here is not the act of donating, but what is being donated and what it represents. In other words, the disadvantaged citizens of this country are only good enough to enjoy leftover cake coming from opulent parties hosted by the governing elite.
Here's what South Africans had to say:
Emmanuel Veli Mavesta - They’ve been eating cakes with their big bellies for the previous years, now that it’s elections are are nearby they then they donate cake mxm
Faro Bernard - Donating cakes is not a good idea,they rather donate 100000 to each atleast they would be done a great job
Schalk Marais - Instead of donating anything they should stop all the functions and all sorts of other bullshit shows... instead they should work on the economy - promote a free market, loosen our archaic labour laws, promote private business, reduce red tape and allow people to create jobs and eventually a better life for all-
Petro Pretorius - If they think to get votes this way they are even more pathetic than I thought. Food parcels like Zuma and 2 tractors like Malema for votes??Priceless.
Nozizwe Preudence Mphapang - ANC is prioritising nonsense
Nozizwe Preudence Mphapang - The should be instilling life changing contributions not cake.
Zamie Yantolo - hell can't they just donate with something more valuable and important than a damn cake that they will eat and that's it.abd that cake will probably cost millions as we all know when it comes to the ANC nothing cost less than a million
