DA notes Ramaphosa booed out of Soweto
18 September 2021
The ANC’s precarious position in this election has been underscored by the Naledi community in Soweto, who booed and chased President Cyril Ramaphosa out of the area during the ANC’s voter registration drive today.
This comes at a time when the ANC has consistently been polling below 50% for months and failed to register candidates in 94 municipalities around the country due to internal disorganisation and failure to pay their staff.
Election 2021 stands to be the moment of reckoning for the ANC, as voters use the polls to boo the ANC out of office in cities and towns throughout South Africa.
The DA is more ready than ever to negotiate new coalitions where it is possible for us to implement the DA’s manifesto pledges. If the voters want to turn from the failing state, to a path of recovery, the DA offers them that chance as the only party big enough to beat the ANC.
Protests are part of a democracy, but they do not change governments. Votes do. That is why this registration weekend is so important. It is the last opportunity to register before the election on 1 November.
Register to Vote this weekend, so that you can vote out the ANC.
