The Democratic Alliance (DA) wants South African citizens to know that a "vote for the ANC is a vote for corruption".

To get its message across, the party will be driving around the province on Thursday night and projecting an image of ANC president Cyril Ramaphosa and the party's secretary general, Ace Magashule under the slogan: "Let's grow corruption together," onto Luthuli House.

The party's first target was ANC headquarters Luthuli House in Johannesburg. 

"Tonight we are doing a projection of what we believe is important to take out to South Africans in a race against time. We must remind South Africans that corrupt politicians belong in prison and not in Parliament.

"On the eve of this election, South Africans must remember the importance of their vote and not reward corruption," the DA Youth League's Luyolo Mphithi told News24 outside Luthuli House.

Mphithi said the DA's message was that a vote for Ramaphosa was also a vote for Magashule.

"We are saying that we do not want corrupt people to serve Parliament. We want politicians who will serve the public to the best of their ability," Mphithi said.

The colourful video message, which lasted less than a minute, comes six days ahead of the national and provincial elections.
