The Democratic Alliance wants to ensure that their point about the inclusion of questionable politicians appearing on the ANC candidates list is made. The opposition party led a march to Luthuli House, leaving behind a pile of prison uniforms for corrupt officials.
The Democratic Alliance and Solly Msimanga, former Tshwane mayor, marched to Luthuli House today, adamant that ANC leadership belongs in 'prison, not Parliament'.
The group had left behind a pile of orange prison jumpsuits for ANC officials implicated in corruption to further drive home their point.
Msimanga called for action to be taken against the allegedly corrupt members of the party, insistent that the DA would not 'keep silent' while the coffers are looted.
Briefly.co.za reported that the ANC candidates list has received widespread criticism, with calls for those implicated in corruption to resign coming from both external and internal sources.
The ANC has officially decided to allow those implicated in corruption to serve until they are proven guilty, but numerous people oppose this and want the members to step down.
Secretary-General Ace Magashule has defended the list, saying only a court of law can give the guilty verdict which would see a member excluded.
According to The Citizen, a few individuals, such as Malusi Gigaba, have already had damning rulings against them, with Gigaba found to have lied under oath.
