- On social media, many south Africans said they agreed that the ANC was doing a poor job in government
- However, many were frustrated that the DA campaigned mostly on the ANC's flaws
- Many said they did not support the ANC anymore, but would not vote for the DA either
Briefly.co.za recently took to Facebook to see what citizens thought of the DA's new election billboard, which said the party would take power from the ANC.
There were a ride range of comments, from support to outrage.
Here's what Mzansi thought about the DA's campaign.
Firstly, the overwhelming majority of the users who replied agreed with the DA that the ANC was failing in government.
Sva Maqungu wrote, "ANC's time is up. The only thing that they excel in is corruption."
"They sold the country out and bankrupted the SOEs," agreed another user, Natalie Despy.
However, a common thread in the comments was a feeling that the DA was campaigning on nothing more than the ANC's failures.
Several commenters said that the DA's ads were proof that they had no ideas of their own and that they did not provide any reasons to vote for them other than the fact that they were not the ANC.
Additionally, many people agreed that the ANC had failed, but said that they would not vote for the DA.
" The ANC is also corrupt and all that but i will never vote for DA i'd rather stay with what i have than wish for what i dont know," wrote Siyabonga Msibi.
"I agree with DA ANC's time is up now its time for EFF to govern DA will never rule again in this country," posted Vee Dyakopu.
With the most recent polls putting the ANC in winning position ahead of the elections and the DA holding the same percentage it received in 2014, it seems these comments may be an indicator of how South Africans will vote on May 8.
