Elephants: ANC being childish — DA

2010-02-26 00:00

THE controversy over the elephant sculptures in Durban, which the ANC-led council allegedly wants to get rid of because it sees the elephant as an IFP symbol, led the DA’s caucus leader in the KZN Legislature, John Steenhuisen, to propose the following motion:

“This house notes the fact that the ANC has halted completion of the three elephant sculptures at the Warwick interchange. Elephants do not belong to any particular party and are non-partisan creatures by nature; they also have significance for a number of communities.

“[The DA] hereby resolves to call on the ANC in eThekweni to desist from petty and childish attempts to stop the structures from being comple­ted [and] to call on the ANC to ensure that the elephant structures are completed in time for the opening of the Warwick flyover.”
