The country's largest opposition party, the Democratic Alliance (DA), has come under fierce criticism for election posters it recently unveiled in Phoenix, Durban.
The posters, placed one above the other, read: "The ANC called you racists" and "The DA calls you heroes", likely in reference to the July unrest in the area.
News24 reported that 36 people died in the area amid racial tension during the unrest when community members attempted to defend their property.
