Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane told potential voters in KwaZulu-Natal on Monday that he had no problem with them taking food parcels from the African National Congress (ANC) and voting DA.
“I know they will bring you food parcels – please take them. We are not voting for food parcels at the end of the day.
Eat the food and vote for change,” Maimane told residents in the Burlington area as part of his Kasi-to-Kasi tour. He also warned the crowd about racial divisions being preached by other political parties.
“If they come to divide us here, they are dividing us on the basis of race. They are saying ‘black people that side, white people that side’.
There are political parties who even say Indian people are the most racist people in this country,” said Maimane, a reference to the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).
