ANC expects punishment for load-shedding

The African National Congress (ANC) is concerned that it will not secure the outright victories it was aiming for in the major metropolitan areas of South Africa, according to a Sunday Times report.

This comes after extensive load-shedding from Eskom last week, with the Democratic Alliance (DA) campaigning on the promise that it alone could prevent further outages.

Internal polling from the ANC showed that voter support for the party was below 40% in Nelson Mandela Bay and Tshwane, and just over 50% in Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni before Stage 4 load-shedding was implemented last week.

Despite their explanation, ANC leaders are still angry as they believe the power cuts are likely to have lost the party votes.

Yup. Nevermind the cost to jobs and economy. Your votes being affected is all that matters.

The middle class got their irk not to vote for us as you’ve seen; they have taken to Twitter and are very angry because of load-shedding … they just got irked.”

:laugh:These are the self-same fools that voted the ANC in in the first place.

As penance for their piss-poor judgement and brainless actions, and the huge damage that has been inflicted on all of South Africa, they ought to all take a solemn vow to vote VF+ for at least the next two to three elections. That'll show the ANC, and at least they will have a proper turnaround in the economy.

Shem. Guess the ANC vote gravy train is finally coming to a halt?
Stop making promises you can't keep...
