Businessman Iqbal Survé gives ANC Western Cape financial boost, says he wants nothing in return

He was pleased that with the donation, their volunteers would not go hungry, and "watch the blue [DA] eat caviar".

The ANC in the Western Cape received a financial boost from Iqbal Survé’s Sekunjalo group with the businessman saying he wants nothing in return.

“I have never hidden the fact that I have supported the ANC,” said Survé at an intimate gathering in Cape Town’s upmarket Silo District on Sunday night.

It is understood that R1m was donated to the governing party.

Survé said his desire to “deepen democracy” for the 2019 national and provincial elections led him to make the donation.

“I have only one condition to this support,” he said. “Do not give us [the company] anything in return. It’s very important that our support is unconditional.”

Survé said the donation was to make sure the party’s 15 000 volunteers got something to eat over the next three days of voting.

It was also to assist with transporting voters to voting stations.

Western Cape elections coordinator Ebrahim Rasool said the the party was feeling very upbeat about the elections, starting with special votes on Monday and Tuesday, and then the main voting day on Wednesday.

He was pleased that with the donation, their volunteers would not go hungry, and “watch the blue [DA] eat caviar”.

Survé is the executive chair of Independent Media, which publishes The Star in Johannesburg, Cape Times and Cape Argus in Cape Town and The Mercury in Durban.
