DA says ANC wants to buy its councilors

The Democratic Alliance in the Western Cape says it has uncovered an ANC plot to bribe DA councillors to defect to the ruling party.

DA Provincial leader Theuns Botha says an ANC plan called Project Reclaim details how the party wants to pay off councillors in Matzikama, Witzenberg, Langeberg, Breede Valley, Theewaterskloof, Hessequa and Bitou municipalities to stand for the ANC in by-elections.

Botha says they plan to lay criminal charges against eight ANC office bearers.

Meanwhile, the ANC in the Western Cape has denied a DA statement that it is plotting to bribe DA councillors to defect to the ruling party.

ANC Provincial secretary Songezo Mjongile says when the ANC teams up with any other party of person, the DA cries foul.

He says the DA has a set of rules for the ANC, and a different set for the DA.

Mjongile says the DA must back up their allegations with tangible proof, because the ANC is considering legal action.
