ANC buys votes with food parcels

According to an investigation conducted by the Sunday Times, the ANC is handing out taxpayer-funded food parcels to impoverished people, telling them this largesse is from the ruling party.

The article says:

  • ANC ward councillors have been compiling the list of relief recipients;
  • The food hampers have, in some instances, grown to include bubble bath, canned fruit, chicken, concentrated fruit drinks and branded food;
  • ANC officials are either accompanying government workers or solely distributing the relief aid;
  • In some instances, they have also distributed food to everybody who pitches up, even if they do not qualify; and
  • Recipients who are members of other parties, or turn up wearing opposition parties’ paraphernalia, have been turned away from queues.
