    Am with u with man. Together we can do more.

      Jerry - 2011-05-20 08:41

      Forget for a moment the ANC and DA. Let's look at CT and Jhb. Where will you want to live? Except if you are living the dream and driving in black brigades with blue ligths....what do YOU or me gain from a political party?? Answer: Service delivery. We work out butts off for what? Potholes? Let's stop shouting political party-names, and be honest. Giving the guy in the shack a home that you and me pay for???...does not help us at all. And then they complain about the open toilets that me and you also paid for, although we had to build our own toilets...and enclosed it ourselves. At the end me and you can only go for the party that gives us clean water, roads to get to work and schools etc.

    ANC ANC ANC forever, ANC till Zille steps down.

      Sickly - 2011-05-20 08:21

      I thought it was ANC until Jesus comes. Or will Jesus only come when Zille steps down? I'm confused?

      JohnnyBB - 2011-05-20 08:30

      ...the ANC will be incompetent and corrupt, ..until Jesus comes....

      Siya - 2011-05-20 08:36

      shame sickly, you realy are CONFUSED... to make it very easy, basic and simple for you, just stick to ANC WILL RULE FOREVER. That can be mastererd by my grade r child.

      michaelx - 2011-05-20 08:37

      DO YOU FEEL THAT BREATH ON THE BACK OF YOUR NECK?THAT IS THE DA COMING FOR YOU!SURELY YOU SHOULD KNOW BY NOW THAT GOOD WILL ALWAYS DEFEAT EVIL.ALWAYS HAS AND ALWAYS WILL....BE AFRAID,BE VERY AFRAID.

      smashly - 2011-05-20 09:10

      What has your ANC done for you that you support them? do you love living with corruption, crime and empty promises! please enlighten me as to why you support them?

      Punkie - 2011-05-20 09:23

      @smashly rather that than see my brothers and sisters be ill treated be rided on as if they were horses, and yes the ANC will rule till the world comes to an end, im sure u not aware of this, but some of us will never forget neither forgive the disgusting ill treatment ur ancestors dished to us. so watch the space or let me say run and sell that lend u stole before we come expropriate without compensation.

      smashly - 2011-05-20 09:34

      @Punkie, I never intended for this to be a race issue and what happend in the past - is in the past, not only that I was never apart of aparteid, nor my family! so just because of the colour of my skin i must suffer! and that doesnt mean you cant vote for another party... any party other than the ANC! dont you think that what is happening now is the reverse of what happend back in the day? is it fair? we are all human at the end of the day!

      Ross Cameron - 2011-05-20 09:45

      ANC supporters are the most loyal and stubborn supporters you can get. They are eternally indebted to the ANC for liberating them and will always vote for them. I guess we have to wait and see whether future generations will have this same sentiment. The ANC will continue to rule for quite some time to come but if they don't get their act together they will not rule till Jesus comes!

      jvscooter - 2011-05-20 10:02

      KISS YOUR BLACK ASS You want zille to step down because she is coming for you @PUNKIE my kids are in a pre school and the white and black kids play with each other and ride on each others backs so are they both racists PLEASE EXPLAIN.with people like you this country will never become what it can.

  • smashly - 2011-05-20 08:22

    oh great!! and the ANC's figures are just going to increase after the votes have been counted in KZN, I think i am now ashamed to be a Natalian after the majority votes for ANC! what were you people thinking??

  • zulufox - 2011-05-20 08:22

    i wonder what everybody expected... this is hardly news really ... the ANC still enjoys massive backing and will be for a long time to come. I just can't wait for the day when there are enough black people in the DA to topple the whites and merge with the ANC... Black people aren't stupid, as soon as they have the electoral numbers in the DA... It will be game, set and match... I hope you remember my words...

      jdeeathome - 2011-05-20 08:25

      are you saying that you want to eliminate the whites or prevent the ANC from losing there grip on your money

      JohnnyBB - 2011-05-20 08:33

      ....ANC = powerful in numbers... ....otherwise useless....

      sparkster - 2011-05-20 08:39

      zulu...the DA gained 20% more votes in PE since the last election and the ANC lost 20% votes since the last election.I vote Zulu for the new head of the D.A.H Party

      Maria - 2011-05-20 10:52

      and you are an idiot

      p123 - 2011-05-20 12:47

      You Sir are a RACIST - are you related to Malema?

  • Pure_Oxygen1 - 2011-05-20 08:23

    You deserve the government you voted for. Hopefully this shouldn't take away from the fact that the DA has made huge strides, especially in PE where it got 40% of the vote.

  • Jan - 2011-05-20 08:24

    The day the country become like Zimbabwe then you will eat your words!!!!

  • Hendrik - 2011-05-20 08:25

    If just more DA supporters took one hour out of their holiday on Wednesday to go and vote wecxould have got the ANC below 60%, there is also a lot of wards where theyANC just got over 50%, a few more opposition voters and their ward would have been okay for the next 5 years. Now they will suffer for the next 5 years, if youcould have voted but did not, don't complain once about service delivery!

  • tigertank - 2011-05-20 08:26

    Saw an article that said china paying internet trolls to tow their party line on forums/comments. Looks like ANC is too, from the above comments. Pretty poor way to create jobs.

  • ji - 2011-05-20 08:27

    now the crime will increase , service delivery decrease . corruption will increase and education will decrease but viva the ANC won . I just hope all the stupid people who voted for the useless ANC don`t stike as you get what you voted for , no jobs , no house , no food and no education . VIVA ANC VIVA CRIME .

  • Stylin - 2011-05-20 08:27

    OBVIOUSLY the ANC will Dominate !!! I will never vote DA after reading their voters (racist) comments on this site. And I encourage all Black people to do the same. Without black people voting for the DA, they are dead in the water!!!

      jdeeathome - 2011-05-20 08:32

      @Stylin read comments from hustle4life and zulufox, then call me a racist, i believe there is a dagga party that needs your support

      nonduplume - 2011-05-20 08:36

      Good we don't want your vote! Because someone doesn't agree with your stupidity doesn't mean they are racist. The last defence of idiot ANC voters is to cry racist like like the last defence of a paedofhile is to say that they were abused as a child!

      michaelx - 2011-05-20 09:05

      YEP, AND YOU ARE DEAD ON THE LAND-IN YOUR SHACK,WHILE LESS THAN .02% of your brothers become FILTHY RICH.Man bit are they laughing at YOU!!

  • Lekker Kiff - 2011-05-20 08:30

    Reports have shown that for every educated vote there were 3 uneducated votes canceling it out

  • kubs - 2011-05-20 08:30

    The only reason the ANC has more votes is that there are simply more black people in the country than any other race..not becuase of their track record and efficiency etc..stupid black people who dont realize the struggle is over and they need to vote for a party that can deliver

      chinyoli - 2011-05-20 08:49

      Yes, blacks are the owners of the country and that can not be disputed and the only party that will ever understand their plight will be black parties, what do the previous beneficiaries of apartheid know about being killed because you wanr a right to vote, segragated against, totured pschologically being reminded everyday that you are a K and a many more. Surely we may have forgiven but never never will we forget.

      Tamzien - 2011-05-20 08:50

      Stupid black people who realize that the DA is a party of people like you!! For every moderate liberal DA voter they are three racist conservative DA voters. The only way the DA will ever run this country is casting out the likes of you.

  • CHIPPER_CHAP - 2011-05-20 08:33

    we can thus look forward to many many more service delivery strikes and real poor service. the people have spoken, now let them have what they deserve :(

    ANC continues to dominate, how nice. Madam is still under MY ANC, LMAO!

      alvin - 2011-05-20 08:50

      Madam is a very intelligent educated woman who is fighting corruption, racism and is building a new South Africa. The ANC are voted in because their followers have no education, cant write, cant spell and in fact the ANC d not want them educated as they will then vote for the DA. If you notice every black person voting for the DA is educated and speaks very well, not like jackson or zuma and the rest in the government.

  • Zakhele - 2011-05-20 08:39

    The only thing to do is to change the ANC from within. There are just far too many people who vote the ANC. So, if you really want to make change rather change them within. I am ANC through and through BUT I also know that the ANC governing of the country is NOT SUSTAINABLE. Sooner than later the systems will collapse because just about every secod person is stealing public money for service delivery. Here is the crux of the matter: Truth be told: The ANC gets its most votes from the YOUTH and the OLD LAZY BUGGERS WHO WANT FREE HANDOUTS and who want take short cuts in life- and this culture is instilled by the ANC leadership. The idea is not to replace or vote against the ANC but the idea is do whatever we can to hold it accountable. Please don't suggest opposition parties as alternative? I now open the gate for insults (because it is a sin to tell the truth in a country with a freedom of expression). Go on, hurl those insults. I really don't care hom much you insult me!

      jdeeathome - 2011-05-20 08:46

      very intelligent comment, unfortunately i do not fully agree, voting for an alternative is not only healthy in a democracy, but can also force an overpowering party as the ANC to look at their principles and make change from within by themselves. as long as they have such a majority they can steal and make and break laws to suit there own personal needs and taboo with the people that through loyalty only keep them in power, something to think about dont you think

      Dal68 - 2011-05-20 08:56

      Great comments, the problem is that it will be too late for this country to mak a real turnaround for the good. The anc has given the ancyl free reign over specific issues. The absolute corruption of the anc has already spread downwards to the next generation.

      Tamzien - 2011-05-20 08:57

      Did not vote for the ANC this election but if the DA were ever in a position to take over, I would. Both the ANC and DA are not yet the finished article. My only hope is that one or both of them get their act right before SA falls apart at the seams (we are quite a long way from that) Post insulting remark v-Here-v

    Thanks to all South Africans who voted ANC, one does not run away from his/her parents because there is a fight at home, you stay and help resolve the differences, as for DA they got voted by ID and they thought wow we have improved, funny.

      jdeeathome - 2011-05-20 08:49

      they have improved with or without the help of the ID, you bufoon

  • Ralph Long - 2011-05-20 08:44

    The ANC has so far about 63% of the votes, how many of that 63% will be protesting about poor service delivery next week? How can you be so stupid to make the same mistake four times? Beats me !!!

      Ntebo More - 2011-05-20 09:03

  • george - 2011-05-20 08:49

    Better is a free independant wild dog that goes hungry than a fat chained, restricted dog. The ANC might be bad but it is ours. We are prepared to go hungry as long as we are free and have our dignity to slaughter cows for rituals and practice polygamy. DA will bring us prosperity but limit our freedoms and cultural practices while promoting homosexuality. If DA wants my vote they must correct this anomaly and respect both polygamy and homosexuality as professed by our constitution instead of singling one cultural practice for degradation. I better go hungry and live in the bush as long as i have my dignity intact to do whatever i want than to be fed full and fat by the DA yet restrict my cultural practices here in my african homeland. This weekend we will be burning and looting in celebration of the ANC win (baboon style) In future i will vote for the DA if it can re-assure the remnants of my cultural practices. If the DA can stop calling the SPCA everytime i slaughter a cow, then they can have my vote. Otherwise they will forever get 20% of the national vote because i am the majority and i am no fool. Ask the National Party.

  • Stephen - 2011-05-20 09:00

    Its been a long time since Mr Mandela took the Long walk to freedom, its understandable that most middle aged black people still felt the wrath of racist white South Africa, with that said it is shame full, humiliating infuriating and disgusting to see our fellow South Africans bicker about race, class, blame shifting with anger greed and non emphatic hate toward each other!!!!! have we not have enough of it ?? Personally I feel that with the wrong the ANC has done(mismanagement of our country, corruption and self gratification happening in government)I personally feel that it is a shame that the majority of our fellow South Africans cannot seem to disregard the fear of loosing "control" of the country because of race , instead of looking at statistics and proven results (So ignorant!!) every one has their freedom to vote!!! the least you could do is educate yourselves before blindly following the mislead masses.I cannot understand why you would support a party that is selfish and does not deliver on their promises. Its not about race, faith , religion or class. It is not about hate, revenge, selfish or ignorant. its about making the obvious choice of choosing the party(by proven track record) that delivers results, that acts to the benefit of all in our beautiful country especially the under privileged.I guess Rome was not built in a day.neither will RSA realize their astounding potential until the corrupt and selfish have been replaced by just and worthy leaders.

      Stephen - 2011-05-20 09:19

      I can only hope that exorbitant salaries in politics are dealt with, although i doubt it. What we need are the basics(Education,Housing ,Clothing and Food dont forget brotherly LOVE) for every south african, equal opportunity! Better medical systems, better infrastructure, better paid civil servants that deserve to be paid because they actually are competent employees. I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT TO WRITE ANY OF THIS SIMPLY BECAUSE I DID NOT VOTE AT ALL, FRANKLY I DONT BELIEVE IN MEDIA DRIVEN CONSUMERISM AND SHROUDED BY PROPAGANDA by THE PERSON WHO HAS THE DEEPEST POCKETS. WHERE HAVE OUR VALUES GONE TO? WHERE IS OUR HUMANITY ? NOT FORCED BY THE PERSON WITH THE BIGGER MOB OR STICK ? WHERE HAS OUR COMPASSION GONE to? SO in closing i guess no vote is a vote for not supporting a monetary system that is based on debt and corporations dangling the proverbial carrot of a salary thats doomed to become less and harder to live life and make ends meet as the rich become richer and the poor well stay poor. Kind of reminds me of a not too distant future. isnt it funny that the federal reserve is a non governmental entity ??? WAKE UP YOU SHEEEEEEEEP!!! guess ill go sit in my corner cause cause i wont get in line and cast a vote into a system I DO NOT BELIEVE IN !still every morning i put on my tie .and i go to work. and i pay my mismanaged taxes.and my cries will never be heard amongst the selfish arguing for the write to control society. Dictate our beliefs and blind us wit more lies.

      semurai - 2011-05-20 09:26

      Stephen, yes I agree with you, but I think this country is in serious need of true reconciliation and we are stil blinded by past issues instead of using common sense in building better societies people are hung-up on hate,fear,racism which we dont need at this point in time.

      Stephen - 2011-05-20 09:33

      agreed!!! but i promise you .... we can make it stop here ... by not dictating our views on our children!!! one day we will all be one !!! God Willing !!! NAMASTE !!!

      Pork - 2011-05-20 15:29

      Every one has a right to vote for their chosen party, why hate us for voting for the ANC, you are white vote for DA, I’m black I vote for the ANC, do you think blacks are that stupid, you think we will vote for our oppressors, think again. You can talk about Mandela as if you like him, but deep down you know you don’t, stop talking about him bcoz you know nothing about being black, you are the once who put Mandela in prison 2day you speak of him as if he is your hero, you think we 4got that you are the once who killed Jesus and 2day you preach about him. King Shaka Zulu saw you for what you are before you even came to this country snakes that’s what you are, 4get about ruling South Africa it won’t happen not in this life time.

  • Nhlonipho - 2011-05-20 09:10

    SMH at how my white brothers and sisters are so enraged with hate for the black man. They speak of reconciliation but all they are thinking of is getting their own back. Us as black people can never do anything good in their eyes. They still perceive us as less inferior. It is shameful and really disapointing. I know some of them here are going to referer to me as recist or something but fact is we can not and will never allow you guys to rule over us again. We will do everything in our god given power and ability to make sure of that. Before pointing at us and telling us how racist we are please look at yourself and the mirror.

      Stephen - 2011-05-20 09:30

      These are single people and they do not speak for an entire society never even mind race !! Judge and so thou shall be judged ..... funny thing though we all bleed RED ..... regardless of faith or religious dogma. Does this hatered of race not make you the exact same person as the old racist white regime ???? we need to get OVER it ?? i am a white SA male and im proud of who i am and where i am from .... i was born here and have just as much right to be here as any of you....... all we are doing is pointing the finger !!! grow up !! OPEN THE FIST CLENCHED IN WANTING AND SEE WHAT WE ALREADY HOLD IN OUR HANDS !!!! and that goes for all of us !!

      Jack - 2011-05-20 09:52

      No Nhlonipho, this is not true. Most whites are here because they want to be. And that means choosing to live in the same country with blacks. You must understand that we desire a different tradition of government where we care more about performance and delivery, than in group-bondedness. In fact, the latter is what gives you apartheid, the former is what gives you the freedom charter. You guys are thinking back to front and have moved away from your original principles of freedom and development. Otherwise you wouldn't vote for corruption and criminality.

      MaestroX - 2011-05-20 10:24

      Nhlonipho, most of us are not enraged with hate, as you call it. We just can't believe you would continue to vote for a bunch of thieves, incompetent and stupid leaders. I would love to know what Julius’s IQ genuinely is!!! The saying cutting off your nose to spite your face is the perfect one for anyone who votes for the ANC. Please tell me one thing the ANC has done for you personally that has benefitted you and your family? There are less jobs, more crime, more taxes, yet less service delivery, houses that were built for the masses are so poorly built most of them have massive defects, all thanks to kickbacks making it almost impossible to build the house properly. Somewhere you need to ask is the ANC actually delivering to its voters or are they all just in it for themselves. Actually there are so many things to be said but it’s a waste of time, the likes of you will vote for the ANC even if they come and take everything you have and do nothing for you. You are all just sheep’s, I guess it’s a tribal thing, a mentality that the "chief" must have everything and you are just lucky to have a big chief who is in charge. Better to have nothing, give it all to your "chief" including your wife if he wants it, than to have a better life but be ruled by a white led party. This despite the DA recruiting more and more non whites. Then again, show me one single successful African country, hmmmm can’t think of any, I wonder why??? Oh sorry I forgot, the Europeans are 100% responsible for it all!

  • ckrummeck - 2011-05-20 09:11

    Why doesn't the IEC go digital and allow voters to appear in person and follow the same process, but instead of writing an 'X' onto a page, have a touch screen, in a private voting booth, where you can select your choice. It's still totally safe in that it can't be hacked, because it's not online; but the benefits are massive. Each ID Number registered can only vote once, no one can spoil a ballot, counting is done automatically, loads of time & money saved, etc. Basically, instead of IEC officials counting the paper vote and capturing them into a system, rather allow voters to directly capture there choice into a system.

    ANC voters just dont realize that you cannot give a party too much power..that is a breeding ground for corruption,nepotism etc..which impacts service delivery.I agree that a white person should never be president of the country again but you need to have to have the opposition in there asking questions and being a pain in the ass..otherwise the govt will basically run wild..and thats whats been happening..

    Once again I have problem with people in this site calling Blacks stupid uneducated wara wara, who's fault is that? which means scars of apartheid are still present in our communities.People whether Black or White were encouraged to make their mark, they did, they chose ANC in most instances and its their right, who am I to judge them based on education level and call them stupid, its their choice wheather I agree or not. So let us respect their choices and debate impotant issues so that who ever votes next time it is based on knowledge and betterment for all, 'cause racial insults wont take us anywhere, lets build this broken nation not further divide it based on skin colour.

    Dear White South African who sends ignorant post on News24 I'M BLACK and I'M PROUD! there is nothing that can change that. You can call me all sorts of names, uneducated, ignorant, stupid, b*tch..Honestly i don't give A DAMN!!! I'm even proud of the so called "little" progress the ANC has made in the past 17years, as young as this democracy is, i am very proud! you have the audacity to utter how corrupt the ANC government is when the whole essence of the apartheid government was corrupt!!! Yes we accept there is still a lot of work to be done and we are not afraid to admit it, but the ANC has STILL DONE a lot for its people. WE WILL STILL VOTE FOR THE ANC, because we believe in it!! WE BELIEVE IN THE BLACK MAN! How do I,in my right (very educated) mind vote for the DA?? when im still oppressed in corporate SA, even when there are still BEE processes being administered. The white MAN will earn a higher salary than ME, I'm more qualified!!! i have more experience and i know for a FACT, i'm smarter, and he still can get away with fokol!! ...HOW can i as a black person VOTE FOR THE DA, when i get dirty looks and fake ass smiles in my OWN country!!! WHITE MAN AGAIN, and Again, BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY CAUSE YOU WILL ONE DAY KILL YOURSELF WITH EMBARRASMENT AND SHAME!!!!. BLACK PEOPLE WILL CONTINUE TO RISE!!! WHILE YOU SIT BACK AND DRINK YOUR VOMIT!!! ps: IM NOT STUPID, IM NOT IGNORANT, IM NOT A SHEEP. I AM A SMART BLACK,PS: CONTINUE WRITING THESE ABOUT BLACKS.. C HOW FAR U GO!

      Puh-lease..the same people u voted for are now slipping into their luxury cars with a bottle of Johnny Walker blue label in 1 hand and saying "So long suckers, until next time!" .People that have the same mindset as you has resulted in corrupt goverments in Egypt,Tunisia, Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe etc..U need to vote for a party than can deliver or at least give them a chance to run a few metros and have a few ministers so that alternative performance can be gauged

      fatpas - 2011-05-20 09:49

      You purport to be intelligent and educated, but judging by your ranting and raving on the forum, I sincerely have my doubts about that proclamation

      Lethik - 2011-05-20 10:13

      ohhh fatpas ...so only white people can "RANT AND RAVE' ON THIS FORUM....PITY!!!

      Chang Yi - 2011-05-20 10:14

      @ fatpas, I think you are just another racist this guy Lethik is talking about...The more I read the comments on news24 the more and quicker I lose respect for SA White people..

      Lethik - 2011-05-20 10:17

      Kubs..don't you understand Engish sweetie? Must we begin a "A" ? must a black person teach you your own language? i wont even entertain your reply.

      Kgomotso - 2011-05-20 10:28

      @ Kubs get to real issues and stop pity arguement of luxury cars bottle of johnny walker even an ordinary citizen can afford those Ministers get paid they afford and they buy what is the problem. If you do not afford get over it do not make your problems the world problem.

      kubs - 2011-05-20 10:31

      Lethink..I bet ur fake hair has more credibility than you

      fatpas - 2011-05-20 10:50

      @Lethik and Chang Yi. Just because you two don't like my comment, you immediately presume me to be white. Unfortunately you are both wrong.

      Lethik - 2011-05-20 11:25

      @KUBS, ACTUALLY IT DOES!! @fatpAS we ARE ASSUMING THAT, INFACT YOU ARE A RACIST!! AND I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU! oh may i ask why do you have doubts about MY proclamation? We can start something interesting here just to prove my point!

  • BIGMOMMA - 2011-05-20 09:25

    its enough that "DA" dominates our workplaces.. just the other day this maid of "colour" goes to the voting station with her "madam" to vote & when she comes back she says she voted for DA because it puts food on her table & I wonder if she voted for democracy or for the left overs... its sad!!

  • Tsundzuka - 2011-05-20 09:27

    DA would have to loose the general elections by the skin of their teeth before defeating the ANC, that will take them atleast 5 general elections, thats 30 yrs, will Zille live that long?

      MaestroX - 2011-05-20 10:39

      The DA will never win unfortunately. The ANC will always win.

  • Dgs - 2011-05-20 09:31

    Well who expected anything different? The problem is there are too many ineffective splinter parties in this country who don't have a hope in hell of winning anything except maybe 1 seat here and there if they are lucky. All they are doing is dividing up the opposition. If they had to throw in their lot with the DA, they could create a far stronger opposition and might even wrest control of a few Municipalities away from the ANC. Unfortunately as it stands and until that happens, the ANC will continue to dominate.

      Lethik - 2011-05-20 11:30

      True! and the ANC needs a serious wake up call! its unfortuanate the DA's bark isn't loud enough!! Young black and white educated class ( a totally new generation) should engage more in politics, the future belongs to the YOUTH, and until that happens this will remain.

      Kgomotso - 2011-05-20 10:35

      Do change if it not broken. ANC have deliver house, roads, electricity, Changed Jozi innercity to world Class, Soweto to heaven every tourist wants to be there, Given Mzansi transport system a new image Rea Vaya, Gautrain, Give Mzansi graduates a chance to progress in co-operate, given Mzansi citizen dignity to associate with everyone of their choice, Give orphans and poor children chance to growup with dignity with grants this is to name the few. Now you know why ANC will continue to conquers we wont change because it is working for us

  • Skerpseun - 2011-05-20 09:40

    "....We will use our "Special Forces....." You live in a dream black man - the ANC (MK) never had and never will have "Special Forces". However, there are plenty of AK toting militias who regard themselves as highly trained soldiers. You will remain the laughing stock of the modern world until you (hopefully) one understand that to blame the white man for all you woes will get you nowhere. Blame the NP goverment and apartheid - not the white man.

  • 4get - 2011-05-20 09:47

    one does not have to be anti ANC or anti DA to be pro good governance. by giving a party your vote you are offering them a job your tax money to spend. when offering a person a job i dont care which political party they belong to. i offer the job to the more capable person.

  • cav - 2011-05-20 09:48

    To all the ANC Voters wait for it the party begins. All your hard earned money will be spent on a big lavish party which you guys cry over service delivery and whatever else you toy toy for. Get over it.When your kids get nothing in the next 10 years are you still going to cry apartheid. No you can blame yourselve as you are the ones that voted for the ANC. When are people going to learn its not abput race but who can deliver and who most of all has the peoples interest at heart.

      Da@Ismile - 2011-05-20 09:54

      We should celebrate for a victory or success.

      Kgomotso - 2011-05-20 11:53

      If you think race does not matter then you are more that fool. I have no problem paying tax that ANC use to give grants to poor child, orphans, sick and pensioners. When ANC use my tax for school feeding schemes when they give tertiary student NSFAS money to study. I will continue to vote ANC that got rid of the stupid Irish structure in work place and gave Black qualified experience person an opprtunity to progress. And of cause I will teach my children the history of Mzansi how a White person mistreated Blacks, Indians and Coloureds mentally, psychologically, ECONOMICALLY, and otherwise. I will show then how Beautiful life in Mzansi is after a White system was defeated and how White racists are bitter about the Economic progress in Blacks. Each time and day they wakeup and see a Black person rich, in luxurious car and house it is pain to them why because in their eyes those are only fit for them.

  • Bra_Tiger - 2011-05-20 09:51

    The ANC has been consistent since 94' in earning within the 60%-67% region of the national vote, the DA is growing yes but at the expense of the smaller parties, the ceiling for the DA is low, there simply isnt enough black people in this country stupid enough to vote for the re badged NP, we'll wear the free DA T-shirts & take the DA food parcel to go vote for the ANC on a full stomach, soon the trend will be simple, we'll have ANC support steady at 60%, DA at 25% and the contest will be for the colored/undecided/dispondent voters who will be split between the 2, so here's a sobering thought for you racists, unless you pack for perth you will live and die in an (overwhelming majority) ANC led South Africa.

      Lethik - 2011-05-20 11:33

      Dankie san!

      Kgomotso - 2011-05-20 12:01

      Spot on Bra Tiger

      Kgomotso - 2011-05-20 12:10

      Another problem that they have is coloureds are not loyal. During Apartheid they associated themselves with Whites because it was an economical benefit. From 94 coming now they associate more with Blacks same reason. I have no problem with that I would do the same under their shoes but for DA they need loyal supporters. And hopeful Patricia stays forever with DA if she breaks like all those parties they formed collition with in 2006 who broke away immediately after election it will be back to square one.

      Mbuso - 2011-05-20 14:23

      Mbuso - 2011-05-20 14:29

      Spot on Stephan, there are few white who think like the way you think but some of them are perpetrating anger, hatred, violence &war. I can see we are sitting on a time bomb...as long as you tell your kids the truth and guide them to respect other people believes, values, cultures etc

  • ngs - 2011-05-20 09:57

      we don't care''

  • JacquesLaing - 2011-05-20 10:13

    Many unhappy ANC supporters still not understand the concept of a multiparty democracy. In their minds SA is only a single party democracy and they can only vote for a different candidate of the same party. They belief that the ANC is family, and that you can’t drop your family – no matter how bad they are. They learn very slow and some people can only learn the hard way. It is a pity other people have to suffer because of this.

  • Kgomotso - 2011-05-20 10:17

    Jozi my Joburg ANC conquers. We the ANC would have loved to win WC and Midvaal but we lost we say Well done DA we are dissapointed we did not. Stop mourning, swearing and insulting people take a lOss like a sport men The PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN.

      Stephan - 2011-05-20 10:33

      Gud man,i agree,now we all have to live with it,we certainly won't attrack black voters by insulting them and the same with black poster insultin whites

  • Stephan - 2011-05-20 10:30

    No prob dude u can for whom eva u want, its ur right,but i think i'l stay thanks.

  • ngs - 2011-05-20 10:36

    All you haters just suck-it up and stop complaining.The people have made their choices so,stop hurling insults because as "you" put it...we shall be the ones who cry about non service delivery,bla,blah,blah.So cut it out!! ANC has won...DONE.Just stop all the nonsense go back to your comfy homes and let us enjoy our victory in peace,PLEASE!

  • Zandile Mthethwa - 2011-05-20 10:42

    I read some of the comments below with amazement at how some of you insult us. Who really gave these people a right to call those who vote for the ANC stupid and uneducated, to you a black person if he exercise his democratic right to vote for a party of his choice is called stupid. I think you still have a lot to learn about black people. You are uncultured and arrogant people. After reading some of the comments here I feel sorry for black people who voted for the DA.
