- The gaffe occured affter the leader, Andries Tlouamma, had been slamming the ANC
- His mistake went viral online
Agang party leader, Andries Tlouamma, slipped up on Saturday while making a speech and accidentally told the crowd to vote for the ANC.
Tlouamma was addressing supporters at the launch of Agang's manifesto in Atteridgeville.
His mistake was broadcast on SABC.
Tlouamma was delivering a fairly standard campaign speech, outlining Agang's stance on several policy issues like improving sanitation and increasing social grants.
However, Tlouamma spent a large portion of his address criticising the ANC as well, according to The Citizen.
Tlouamma spoke about the ANC so much that he accidentally told the crowd to vote for the ruling party on 8 May.
"We must make sure we make the right choice on 8 May and vote for ANC!" he told the crowd and those watching on TV.
His mistake quickly drew a response on social media, with many making fun of Tlouamma. In particular, Fikile Mbalula, the ANC head of elections, weighed in and fired some shots at Tlouamma:
"When you give yourself one job, and even that is a tall ask of yourself! What a clown."
Tlouamma's gaffe helped the speech go viral but, unfortunately, only the part where he made the slip-up.
