Listen to the interview below:
We are a party in opposition and our responsibility is to hold the ANC government accountable, to keep President Zuma accountable.— Phumzile van Damme, DA national spokesperson
The ANC needed to yesterday stand up against Zuma for South Africans... It was a strategic loss for the ANC.— Phumzile van Damme, DA national spokesperson
South Africans are seeing that the ANC is willing to rally behind this man who has failed this country. It looks terrible for the ANC.— Phumzile van Damme, DA national spokesperson
Not everyone in the ANC is bad. We wanted to appeal to those people who have publicly spoken out against President Zuma.— Phumzile van Damme, DA national spokesperson
