The ANC says it will lodge a complaint with Electoral Commission of SA after the DA arrived at the party’s headquarters to hand over objections to candidates on its lists, and dropping off orange overalls signifying they deserved to go to prison, and not parliament. The ANC candidates that the DA was objecting to included President Cyril Ramaphosa, Deputy President David Mabuza, ministers Bathabile Dlamini and Nomvula Mokonyane, and former minister Faith Muthambi. The list had sparked public outrage after members such as Mokonyane and former minister Malusi Gigaba, who has been embroiled in allegations of state capture, made it onto it.
