Mbalula slams the Western Cape's government

According to TimesLIVE, Mbalula said not voting for the ANC in the upcoming elections means they will miss benefits. These include getting work without prior experience. He also slammed members of the ANC and said on voting day, they were gallivanting while Democratic Alliance members dutifully voted for their party.

"The Western Cape is ruled by witches that bewitch us. We must not give up. They do not need rallies because they know that they come out in numbers while we go out and drink," he said.

Mbalula said the ANC promised 2.5 million jobs if it remained in power. This is despite over 32% of the population being without jobs.
