This campaigning has led to some tensions, however. Politicians from various parties have routinely lashed out at one another.

However, a video shared a Twitter account called EFFJoziGroundForces allegedly shows some ANC supporters escalating this tension to physical violence. The video shows men dressed in yellow assaulting another man.
