As culled from a new24 report, Maimane tasted the annoyance of some protesters when he commenced his walkabout in Wentworth, south of Durban to inspect the living conditions of the residents.
BuzzSouthAfrica learnt that the DA leader, along with other delegates visited the area to engage the communities, identify, and address the service delivery issues they’re experiencing.
While Maimane was at The Ark shelter, the ANC protesters who reportedly left Maimane’s party for the ANC on Sunday, locked the entrance gate to the shelter.
The DA leader was reportedly locked in for about 15 minutes before Aubrey Snyman, a DA Councillor intervened. Snyman as reported, “got hold of a key and managed to unlock the gate, so Maimane, DA supporters and members of the media could exit.”
It was further related that ANC and DA supporters were chanting the name of the party they’re supporting, and that “at one stage, the DA grouping was standing at one side of the gate, and the ANC supporters on the other side, shouting at one another.”
Maimane in a recent comment about the forthcoming elections said: “in August, we will bring the DA difference to the people…We will become an unstoppable blue wave…across the country.
And when the 2019 national and provincial elections come around, that blue wave will remove this corrupt and uncaring ANC government from the Union Buildings for good.
