Mmusi Maimane, the DA's leader, has vowed to deliver proof of his theory that the ANC is involved in the recent service delivery protests that have taken South Africa by storm. He plans to hand it over to Police Commissioner, General Khehla Sitole.
Mmusi Maimane is convinced that the African National Congress is behind the recent spate of service delivery protests, and promised to deliver evidence.
The Sowetan reported that the DA leader plans to hand over evidence to Police Commissioner, General Khehla Sitole.
Maimane was speaking at Constitution Hill on Sunday, 14 April and said it looks like the ruling party is worried about losing power during the elections.
Maimane said he wants to talk to Sitole face to face.
Firstly, I will… approach the national police commissioner, General Khehla Sitole, requesting an urgent face-to-face meeting in the next 48 hours to establish what plans are in place to put an end to this violence and to restore law and order in our communities.
The SAPS must immediately institute a plan to halt the ANC's objective of inciting violence and turning our communities into war zones. I will address this head-on when I meet with General Sitole.
Less than a week ago, the DA started accusing the ANC of using the protests to undermine them.
Briefly.co.za reported that Maimane said the ANC is trying to make DA-led cities ungovernable. He also alleged that the ANC is trying to shift blame for the service delivery failures onto the DA ahead of the May election.
This came after protests broke out in various parts of the Western Cape and Gauteng, mostly due to service delivery complaints. In some places, protesters burned tyres and barricaded roads.
