The ANC has blamed the DA for a violent skirmish between the EFF and the Land Party supporters that took place in full view of SABC live cameras yesterday.
Slamming on the incident, ANC Western Cape election head and former ambassador to the US Ebrahim Rasool said the Western Cape is a “fragile society” as a result of the DA’s policies.
The Western Cape is a fragile society that is already burdened by racial polarization caused by the DA’s policies. We can least afford the kind of political violence that we have seen in Caledon, Grabouw and other places.
Ambassador Rasool also said due to the violence, the DA has been “let off the hook” as it it would not have to answers on a host of things during the debate.
(The DA) was let off the hook this morning and did not have to explain the R2 billion it had not spent on the Urban Settlements Grant…., The DA was also let off the hook on crime, drugs and murder. The DA was escaped from being made to explain their failure to create jobs in the lucrative Hout Bay harbour.
Chaotic scenes played out on live television when EFF and Land Party supporters started throwing chairs at each other during an SABC election debate in Hout Bay on Friday. Supporters of the Black First Land First and Good party were also seen involved in the skirmishes.
