On 29 March 2016 I asked my legal team to write to the South African Human Rights Commission demanding an apology for having failed to properly investigate the completely baseless allegations against me made by the ANC, causing massive reputational harm.
On 23 May 2016, the SAHRC issued an unconditional apology.
I now urge the Commission to conduct a comprehensive investigation in these baseless and defamatory allegations against me, because then the ANC will be shown up for their gutter politics, and defamatory lies. I do this because I have nothing to hide.
From the outset, the ANC have attempted to discredit the DA’s campaign to win Nelson Mandela Bay by exploiting fellow South Africans in the interest of fabricating defamatory racial accusations. This is because the ANC knows it cannot win Nelson Mandela Bay.
Independent polls are showing that the DA’s campaign to bring real and positive change to Nelson Mandela Bay is gaining momentum. The ANC are now running scared, and relying on racial mobilisation. They have given up on competing fairly on their own plans, because they know that the DA is winning.
Whilst it is sad that the ANC would stoop to such gutter politics to retain power, it is indicative of an ANC that is no longer what it used to be. More than ever the people of Nelson Mandela Bay need change.
I hope that the SAHRC will now pursue the investigation so this spurious matter can finally be put to rest.
I will no longer sit by and allow the ANC to forge on with such gutter politics. This is why I am, for the first time in my life, also litigating against those ANC individuals responsible for coordinating this slanderous smear campaign against me.The DA remains committed to the people of the Bay, because the time of ANC skulduggery and broken promises is over. The DA can win this Metro on the 3rd August 2016, so that a new government can begin working to take us forward again.
Only the DA has a plan to improve service delivery, provide honest government, stop corruption and create jobs, and we are absolutely ready to govern for all residents.
