South Africans were baffled at how the DA gave out food parcels during the campaigning season while they accused the ANC of vote-buying after Magashule gave a woman R400 to buy food.

Briefly.co.za previously reported the ANC's Ace Magashule ruffled quite a number of blue DA feathers when he gave a Philippi woman R400 for food during a door-to-door election campaign in the Western Cape.

Twitter account White Man Confession, @ConfessionWhite, wrote: "Isn’t so disgusting that the DA gives branded food parcels to the needy? These hypocrites made a loud noise when it was the ANC that gave food parcels. At least the ANC’s were not branded. Let’s expose them."
Another tweep, @AlistairSibiya2, added: "This DA has double standards on all levels. Every ad on tv n radio makes more mention of THE EFF and ANC. I thought Zille's DA was hypocritical but Mmusi's is worse."
