President Jacob Zuma says he does not understand black people who choose to vote for the Democratic Alliance (DA).
Zuma made the statement at the African National Congress’ (ANC) countdown to the August 3 local elections on Wednesday.
The president was at the Market Theatre where he addressed celebrities‚ church leaders and ruling party leaders.
It took history‚ age and experience to govern SA‚ all of which the ANC had‚ said the president.
He reminded the audience of the role the ANC played in the negotiations for freedom‚ pointing out that many had forgotten about that‚ including the origins of the DA.
“After we liberated ourselves they came together‚ this name DA‚ Democratic Alliance it was an alliance between the Progressive Party and the National Party‚” said Zuma
“If you are a black person‚ you join that party really? Really?“
