The ANC also called for the DA to act against Cameron. Sayed slammed Cameron.

"Cameron's actions, now or many years ago, illustrate someone who is insensitive towards racism, someone who is racist. The fact that he painted his face black to oppose transformation policies means we're to have a public representative at the legislature who is going to oppose and push back on the transformation agenda that the country has been moving on," he said.
