ANC supporters wearing red-berets and who attended a door-to-door campaign by President Jacob Zuma in Mpumalanga said their headgear was meant “to confuse the enemy”.

African National Congress supporters wearing  red-berets and who attended  a door-to-door campaign by President Jacob Zuma in Mpumalanga said their headgear was meant “to confuse the enemy”, the City Press reported on Wednesday.

According to the paper, the supporters wore red berets similar to those made popular by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), but sporting the ANC’s logo instead.

According to the City Press report the supporters were also sporting yellow ANC T-shirts with Zuma’s face on them and the words “ANC President” underneath.

The beret-wearers told City Press they got these from the local ANC branch yesterday, with some claiming it was meant to confuse the enemy – with reference to Julius Malema’s EFF.

ANC spokesperson Keith Khoza said the ANC did not mind people wearing red berets, according to the City Press report.

He added these would not cause brand confusion because Cosatu and the SA Communist Party (SACP) also used similar colours.

“The ANC branding on the berets is good enough to indicate that the wearer supports the party,” he said.
