One of the most popular social media analysts in South Africa, Simon Grindrod has exploded that a vote for the DA is also a vote for the ANC. He made this statement on Twitter after it was reported that the Democratic Alliance had stayed away from attending a meeting to discuss how to pass a vote of no confidence on president Cyril Ramaphosa. This action of the Democratic Alliance (DA) did not go well with Simon Grindrod, and he lamented that as the main opposition party in South Africa, the Democratic Alliance is not discharging its duties properly. He wrote, “A vote for the DA is a vote for the ANC. Period. Imagine an Official Opposition that protects an ANC President who has delivered the highest unemployment, crime rates & economic misery to South Africa. We have a Cabinet of retirees led by a part-time President who has delivered nothing but socio-economic misery, and rampant lawlessness to our nation”. Mr Simon Grindrod cannot fathom why the Democratic Alliance will decide to side with Ramaphosa.
Simon Grindrod always takes out time to lash president Cyril Ramaphosa, and he does not spare other political parties when the need arises. He was furious with president Cyril Ramaphosa yesterday when he disclosed that Ramaphosa always find a way to travel during Marikana remembrance or commemoration. He wrote, “We have a President who happily jets off all over the world for staged events but who dodges meeting the media, and Marikana widows here at home”. Simon Grindrod had earlier said that the Democratic Alliance (DA) is not providing enough opposition to keep the ruling ANC on its toes. He noted that any opposition party that mingles and tangles with the ruling party cannot be said to be truly an opposition party. Another person wrote, “This has been the DA's position way before this phala phala thing.
They announced they will lodge a motion of no confidence against the cabinet, but not Ramaphosa.They require him to implement their policies”.
