Cape Town -

The ANC did nothing between elections except steal taxpayers money, Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille told a campaign rally on Saturday.

“We will never allow the ANC to bring corruption back to the Western Cape,” Zille told a mostly coloured crowd in the Bellville Velodrome.

“The ANC talks a lot at election time but they do nothing except steal your money in between elections.”

Zille said it was essential that the DA retain power in the Western Cape on May 7 to show the rest of the country that it governs better than the African National Congress.

Retaining the province was a step towards claiming others and eventually governing South Africa.

“Every week is a step closer to Pretoria,” she said. - Sapa
