The Democratic Alliance pulled off a political masterstroke according to some when they marched to Luthuli House and donated prison uniforms to the African National Congress. South Africans had a lot to say about the matter.
Briefly.co.za shared the story of how the DA marched to Luthuli house to drop off prison uniforms for the ANC.
The message from the opposition party was clear – the ANC leadership are more deserving of prison cells than parliament due to the alleged corruption.
The publicity stunt was certainly effective and evoked strong reactions from South Africans.
Briefly.co.za surveyed the public response via social media and we share some of the feedback here.
The move was applauded in some quarters even though they may not be DA supporters.
However, not everyone was impressed and some questioned where the funds came from.
Donald Qhibi said, “They are failing the people of Alexander, they must first wear the uniform and handcuffs themselves.”
Hayden Johnson said, “BRILLIANT that's what they should be wearing. Common thieves. Must have been some XXXXL Overalls.”
Phillip Dyonase commented, “These guys have run out of ideas. Theirs is NOT campaigning but provoking the ANC. The IEC must look into this. The DA has already been red carded on the way they are dealing with De Lille's GOOD party.”
