Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille says the coming local government elections could prove a watershed moment in South African politics.
Zille says voters will for the first time have an opportunity to properly compare political parties' track records.
Voters will, for instance, be in a position to contrast five years of DA government in Cape Town with five years of ANC government in Johannesburg.
Zille says instead of making local service delivery the issue, the ANC is making race the issue in the run-up to the polls.
