Zuma takes swipe at opposition parties

President Jacob Zuma has taken a swipe at opposition parties, telling the elderly in a village in Limpopo that they must not waste their votes on them.  

President Zuma was addressing a packed hall in Ga-Seleka in Lephalale in Limpopo.

President Zuma left no one untouched. He accused the Democratic Alliance (DA) of being a child of the National party, saying a snake bears a snake.

He has described Congress of the People (COPE) as formed by losers at the African National Congress (ANC) Polokwane Conference, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) as ill-disciplined and says United Democratic Movement (UDM) leader Bantu Holomisa was expelled by former President Nelson Mandela.

He has repeatedly made veiled attacks on EFF leader Julius Malema as young boy without manners.

He has told the elderly not to waste their vote on smaller parties as they can only talk about dreams or aspiration, but will never govern and that they just want Parliamentary seats.

Meanwhile, COPE leader Mosioua Lekota is adamant that his party will do well during the August 3rd elections.

Lekota was campaigning in Butterworth in the Eastern Cape.

He says people have confidence in his party.

“I am not suggesting that we are going to be an official opposition party. I’m quite sure that in a number of municipalities the people will give us their support and give us responsibility to manage some of those towns in which they feel the Congress of the People can be relied upon to deliver.”
