The KwaZulu-Natal chapter of the African National Congress (ANC) has condemned the Democratic Alliance (DA)’s new election posters in Phoenix, tagging the DA as a racist organisation.

The posters carry the caption: “The ANC calls you racists, the DA calls you heroes.”

Reacting to the ANC comments, the DA maintained that the posters were in no way portraying racial slurs but were in commemoration of those who stood up to protect their properties during the July unrest.

Recall that that during the July unrest, no fewer than 36 people lost their lives in the area in which some suspected individuals are still facing trial for murder charges.

However, the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal has vehemently condemned the posters labeling it as a desperate attempt and an act of dividing the people.

Reacting to the posters, the provincial spokesperson of the ANC in KZN, Nhlakanipho Ntombela, said: “This is a political hypocrisy of the highest order of the party which claims to be a non-racial organisation.”

Ntombela urged residents to collaborate with the ANC as he assured residents that those responsible for the killing will be brought to book and locked behind bars.

“We call on the Indian community, in particular in Phoenix and in Chatsworth, and all the surrounding areas to see for themselves that the DA is clearly a racist organisation,” he added.

As the two parties squabble over the DA posters, this tragedy will take centre stage on Wednesday as the case of 19-year-old Mondli Majola, who was killed in Phoenix, returns to court.
