IT was a tale of two political parties yesterday as UDM leader Bantu Holomisa proved a magnet for supporters in Port Elizabeth, while Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga, campaigning for the ANC just down the road, was virtually ignored.

Like a Pied Piper walking through the streets of the most impoverished areas in the townships, Holomisa attracted hundreds of supporters who left whatever they were doing to follow him around.

Waving, shaking hands, bumping fists and going door to door, the UDM’s Eastern Cape premier candidate stopped traffic as his convoy grew from just a few cars and one taxi to almost 20 cars and 10 taxis while he went through Chris Hani in New Brighton, KwaNdokwenza in Njoli, and Kwazakhele. – Thulani Gqirana and Riaan Marais

    The tide has turned for the A.N.C! They are in decline as people start to get tired of endless lies,corruption and sheer incompetence.Had they ditched Zuma things would be very different .Zuma is worth millions of votes to the D.A.The A.N.C. will still most probably win the election but with a reduced majority as there are still many uneducated sheep that cannot wait to be fleeced!
