AFRICANGLOBE – South Africa’s White controlled Democratic Alliance political party is losing African voters to Julius Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).
This is according to Democratic Alliance Western Cape leader Theuns Botha, Beeld newspaper reported today.
“Did you know that the Economic Freedom Fighters has attracted most of its voters from the Democratic Alliance?” he was quoted as saying in the Afrikaans daily.
He was speaking to businessmen in Bellville, Cape Town, yesterday.
Botha reportedly said the Democratic Alliance’s research showed that many Black people who had started to support the Democratic Alliance would now instead vote for the Economic Freedom Fighters.
He expressed concern that the Economic Freedom Fighters could determine the outcome of the May 7 elections in Gauteng, saying the Democratic Alliance and the African National Congress would have to look after each other.
“Can we allow that Julius Malema governs Gauteng?” he asked.
