“Zuma used NMB War on Leaks as ANC campaign event” - DA

BY CHARL BOSCH - AUGUST 31, 2015

The Democratic Alliance (DA) has described President Jacob Zuma’s visit to Port Elizabeth on Friday, as containing the hallmarks of “an ANC election rally” instead of a campaign meant to resolve the country’s continuing water crisis.

Speaking in a statement, party Shadow Minister of Water and Sanitation, Leon Basson, said Zuma’s launching of Nelson Mandela Bay’s War on Leaks campaign in Zwide, escalated into a campaign event with the distribution of ANC regalia and the making of outcomes running up to next year’s local government elections.

“The ANC’s electioneering-at-state-expense shows how a work creation project has been commandeered for political purposes,” Basson said.

“War on Leaks” has shown its true colours as an ANC vote-winning program. This plan is not going to fix the root cause of water losses in the country, nor will it fix unemployment through sustainable jobs”.
