The IFP condemns KZN MEC for Transport,
Willies Mchunu, for using state resources to attract votes in
eMondlo, Vryheid, in northern KwaZulu-Natal – and for
shamelessly using naive children at the same time.
During his recent visit to eMondlo, children
from several schools were invited to the event with promises
that they would get bicycles donated by the department. But,
instead, children only got to hold the bicycles while photos
were taken. After the event, the bicycles were taken from the
children and loaded onto a truck. Children went home empty
This is a clear indication of how low the ANC
is prepared to stoop in chasing votes, and how it shamelessly
abuses public resources to gain votes.
It should also illustrate to voters how the
ANC always promises Heaven and Earth, which are inevitably
revealed to be only empty promises.
The ANC will abuse State resources and spread
lies to the people as we head into the election. People must be
careful about ANC leaders who are liars and hypocrites. The time
has come for eMondlo residents to do the right thing by voting
for the IFP - the party that will deliver on its promises.
The IFP calls on the MEC for Transport to
urgently fulfil the promise he made to the children, by giving
them the bicycles they were expecting.
