Minister Fikile Mbalula says EFF and Action SA ganged up on the ANC in coalitions

Johannesburg- South Africa’s Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula has had his say on the African National Congress (ANC’s) failed coalitions with other parties.

Mbalula who also served as the ANC Head said the ANC did not lose elections, but coalitions due to smaller parties ‘ganging up’ on the ruling party.

“We won Joburg without outright majority BUT they decided to give Joburg to the DA. The people of Joburg voted for the ANC not the DA. But we accept the coalitions arrangement it did not favor us,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Smaller parties coming together to oust the ANC, that is what is happening in the metros and it happened others define it as “punishment” if there’s any punishment is by our voters who did not come out in numbers to vote, we respect their stance we need to address their issues,” he added.
