We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – these past 24 hours, and the 24 that follow, will have massive repercussions for the future of our country. Whilst the preliminary results are expected to be announced at some point today, the official results will only be announced tomorrow morning.
Open any local news site today and you’ll see election stories dominating the home page, and the same is true for SA’s newspapers. They would have had to go to print late last night, meaning they’re not as up to speed with the latest numbers, but they do make for good viewing.
The South African have a quick look at some of the country’s biggest newspapers so let’s have a gander:
That would be ‘Goliath Stumbles’ for the souties out there (myself included).
That would be the ANC secretary-general lashing out at what he said was laziness amongst party supporters. Newsflash Gwede, maybe that poor turnout is because they couldn’t bear to mark your box with an ‘X’.
This would be Julius regaling in the power of the coalition (more on what that word means HERE).
Bad news for the ANC, good news for ladies watching e.tv on Monday night.
The Herald was printed before the ANC withdrew their dispute claim with the IEC, and have since congratulated the DA on their victory in Nelson Mandela Bay.
Noble, it has to be said.
Well, that doesn’t need much explaining.
Years of complacency finally coming home to roost.
My favourite tweet of the day thus far, just for a good chuckle. Remember when Zuma said that the ANC will rule until Jesus returned (HERE)?
Check this gem from former Congress of SA Trade Unions (COSATU) general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi, in the wake of the ANC losing Nelson Mandela Bay:
Apply some cold water to that burn.
