The video below is a reminder to the #ANC #NEC as to WHY they lost #CapeTown #Tshwane & #Johannesburg metros in the recent elections....Watch and realize that "we the people" are sick & tired of theft, corruption & apartheid style governance - The #ANC must not cry when it is dead ---- we warned you - #ZumaMustFall #Rand #ZAR #PortElizabeth #HumanRightsViolations #MediaBlackout Facebook Mark Zucke͏rbe͏rg United Nations Human Rights Campaign Security Alec Economic Freedom Fighters Democratic Alliance 6 hours ago
