Old lady asks for food from David Mabuza, what he gave her instead left Mzansi speechless

It's a final count down towards local government elections, and politicians are chasing the deadline to finally convince the electorate to choose them. Deputy President David Mabuza is out and about in KwaZulu-Natal for a two-day election campaign trail. Mabuza also conducted a door-to-door campaign in the Osizweni area.

The Deputy President visited an old lady's household and tried to convince her to vote for the ANC. The lady told Mabuza that she was hungry and asked him what he had broughtfor her. "Uphetheni?" the elder asked Mabuza what is he bringing for hungry people as he's campaigning at Osizweni. She told him to help with groceries but Mabuza presented the old lady with ANC regalia. In response, the old lady said, "not even grocery." 

The grandmother was hungry and even asking if Mabuza was not bringing food but a whole deputy president of the country is giving her an ANC t-shirt.

The whole scenario left many people heartbroken and speechless. Some suggest that Mabuza should have atleast had a heart and given the old lady something to address her hunger, not a T shirt. "This is an insult. Mabuza, you have no shame, " a Twitter user said.

Gogo, how can he give you groceries when Luthuli house employees don't even get paid? Why does he give you egalia but your grandchildren don't have jobs? Why did he go to Russia for treatment but you have to queue at a local clinic and hope they have medicine? Mabuza remains problematic.
