The ANC’s stunt of covering up the DA election
posters and also tampering with IFP ones in Ladysmith KZN, while
using unauthorised metal clamps to hang their PVC posters,
smacks of the party’s contempt of not only the municipal bylaws,
but also other political parties.
“What is clear is that the ANC believes it can
act with impunity and that no one can hold them accountable for
anything. While we follow the rules and work within the law, the
ANC does not care for the rules, neither would they ever take
any responsibility” said Mr. Narend Singh, head of the IFP
National Campaign Committee.
The ANC regional secretary in Ladysmith,
Maphitha Sithole, has already sent an apology to the DA.
“And as much as we acknowledge the fact that
an apology was rendered, it does not exempt those who removed
the posters from facing criminal charges, as tampering with
election posters is a criminal act”
“What is interesting is that no apology was
sent to the IFP from the ANC concerning their tampering with our
posters as well. Had the IFP been implicated in such an
incident, the ANC would be the first to call for charges, heads
to roll and they would run to every hilltop proclaiming how the
IFP breaks the law – the double standards of justice are

Committee head, on 083 788
