WATCH: They are snakes! says Zuma of DA

24 July, 07:45 AM

Watch as President Jacob Zuma likens the Democratic Alliance (DA) to the National Party (NP) which ruled during apartheid.

Zuma dissed the official opposition in Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality during a 'victory' rally on Saturday, 23 July.

He warned the tens of thousands of supporters against voting for the DA, calling that party the spawn of an alliance between the NP and Progressive Party.

Zuma called the DA a snake and said only the ANC had liberated South Africans and could take them from political liberation to prosperity.

He claimed DA members always spoke about the ANC whenever they opened their mouths, which is what the NP had done.

"They have the same hatred. They don't believe black people can lead," said Zuma.

"When a snake, a poisonous one, gives birth, it gives birth to another snake. How can you vote for people who don't know you and who you don't know?”

Watch for a wrap* of the Siyanqoba rally.
