ANC Youth League president Julius Malema refused to engage in a live debate with DA’s national spokeswoman Lindiwe Mazibuko saying: "she is just a servant; I don’t want to speak to servants. I want to speak to the madam."
Speaking at the IEC national results centre inn Pretoria, Malema said the DA didn’t steal votes from the ANC but their growth was from the Independent Democrats (ID). “The ID was killed by the ‘madam’,” he said.
Malema added that the ANC still retained the trust of the majority of voters as indicated by the victory and that they believe the ANC can deliver services.
“She (Helen Zille) is misrepresenting the history of the country. She can’t talk about Mandela one side and then Verwoerd on the other side”.
