The African National Congress in the Western Cape has
called for a full investigation into the financial affairs of the Democratic Alliance-run City
of Cape Town.
This comes after a
national treasury report found that the DA is dishing out free services to
households that do not qualify in order to accumulate more votes.
The DA’s R3.3 billion
votes buying scandal was exposed in a report tabled by treasury to the mayor
and her advisers on Tuesday.
R1.9 billion is spent on free service to people who do not qualify for it.
Western Cape ANC’s
Cobus Grobler said, “The ANC has found many instances of the DA abusing state
resources to secure votes in areas like housing, construction,
extended public works projects, favours to gangsters and even in development as
well as the DA’s notorious use of food parcels to sway poor voters.”
The ANC will use its
councilors to question this scandal Grobler concluded
