Cape Town - The DA has accused the ANC of abusing state resources for its electoral campaign after a state agency was seen handing out branded blankets and parcels of toiletries at an ANC rally in Parys in the Free State on Saturday.
According to the Sunday Independent, DA spokesperson Mmusi Maimane said the Parys event was only the tip of the iceberg and that there is chronic blurring of the lines between state and party. He said the ANC does not understand the difference.
This came after the SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) handed out blankets and toiletries to a few hundred elderly ANC supporters who had arrived to hear President Jacob Zuma speak.
However, ANC spokesperson Khusela Sangoni-Khawe said the party did not know Sassa would be there.
