The Democratic Alliance has taken a massive statue of one of the Gupta brothers 'home' and erected it at the birthplace of the ANC. Mmusi Maimane, the leader of the party, says it serves as a reminder that the ANC movement has become that of the Guptas.
The Democratic Alliance has made a bold statement with a behemoth statue, depicting one of the notorious Gupta brothers.
The opposition party felt that the most fitting home for the statue - which features in their election advert - was outside of the Waaihoek Wesleyan Church in Bloemfontein.
The church served as the birthplace of the ruling party, which Mmusi Maimane says has been captured by the Gupta family:
"We say the movement [ANC] was started here [but] it becomes the movement of Gupta[s]. The leadership of the ANC is the Gupta leadership."
In a bombshell address Maimane lamented the 'tragedy' that was Nelson Mandela's movement, saying it will die a 'movement of the Guptas and the movement of Bosasa'.
The opposition leader admitted that it may be hard for South Africans to turn against the 'party of struggle' which had fought for the liberation of the nation, but maintained that the party no longer exists, reports News24.
Maimane insisted that the once-great political movement has since been replaced by the 'greedy and corrupt gang that is slowly bleeding our country dry'.
