Cape Town - As Muslims celebrate Eid on Wednesday, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) is urging them to consider their religion at the voting polls next month.
The EFF said on Tuesday: “A vote for the DA is a vote against Islam.”
The party is campaigning in a local government election for the first time since it was formed in August 2013.
EFF Proportional Representative Councillor for the City of Cape Town, Faranaaz Simons, says a “Muslim voting for the Democratic Alliance is a Muslim voting against his or her interests”.
“The DA has shown nothing but contempt for Muslims, our culture and our place in society over an extended period of time. Muslims exist only as voting fodder for the DA in the Western Cape.”
