SA Divided As "White" Opposition Burns National Flag In Election Advert (PICS) by WannaHowzit(m): 4:22am On May 13
South Africa's President Cyril Ramaphosa has hit out at the main opposition party after one of its election adverts featured a national flag engulfed in fire.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) has defended the image saying it wanted to highlight its argument that the country is in trouble.

Watch advert

Burning the flag is not illegal, but the president called the DA's depiction an "abuse", adding that it undermined the unity of the country.

Campaigning has become increasingly fractious ahead of the 29 May general election.

In the advert, as the flag is seen going up in flames, a voice-over warns "life will only get worse" under the African National Congress (ANC), which has been in power since 1994.

The burning of the flag is then reversed as the speaker urges voters to support the DA.

"This election is about survival," it ends as the flag is replenished and returns to its original form.

The DA advert angered some South Africans who accused the party of desecrating the flag to highlight challenges faced by citizens.

In a statement on Tuesday, the president said while he was committed to free speech, this has to "be exercised with respect for all people and that it does not incite social upheaval or violence".

In his campaigning, Mr Ramaphosa has acknowledged that there are problems in the country, but he has also emphasised the transformation that South Africa has made in the last three decades.

The ANC led the struggle against white-minority rule and the legalised form of racial discrimination known as apartheid.

"South Africans are more educated, empowered and healthier than they were under apartheid," Mr Ramaphosa has said, urging people not to threaten that progress.

Addressing the media on Sunday, when the advert was launched, DA leader John Steenhuisen said it was a "symbolic representation of the future that awaits South Africa if people do not vote for the DA".

South Africa goes to the polls on May 29. The governing ANC is expected to lose support after 30 years in power. This will be the most contested election since Nelson Mandela was voted president in 1994. The official opposition, DA, is often accused of representing white interests.

If by any means South Africans let this opposition win, their country will be like Nigeria. This threat was similar to what APC Buhari used to take power from PDP GEJ and today we're paying for our mistake.

Traffic lights are stolen by nyaopes. We all know who sells drugs in SA (πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬πŸ‘ŽπŸΎ).

SA elections will be free and fair, despite Inkabi - hence no need for Western observers unlike in Japageria where drug barons steal elections.

Are you done embarrassing yourself and Japageria πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬?

Are you saying the Nigerians are so powerful to be running drug business in SA, wow, they must be genius, meaning those who are into that business from SA are just punks.

Regarding the economy, hahah former Nigeria CBN governor also cooked so many statistics for the country which made us look good but in reality, it's all fake, That's exactly the case of SA with the economic ranking..

You dey mess with a wrong guy. When one candidate who loss in the election off late went back to the community he donated transformer to and removed it because those people didn't vote for him?

How many people have been gunned down due to political issue in SA even before the election?

SA is on the verge of collapsing as a nation. The video below, I have watched nothing less than 5 similar narratives from different sources. Do you know more than those people?

I don't trust 80% of news on Nairaland when it comes to SA - always negative. During the riots they posted fake news South Africans were about to turn into cannibals and that a woman looted dozens of dildos. We all know Japageria is fake news and propaganda central.

SA has free and fair elections - argue with your keyboard if you like (no western observers to monitor us like children as they always do Japageria where drug barons and zombie Sudanese Jubrils win elections).

If SA as Africa's biggest and most advanced economy is on the verge of collapse, then i wonder what Japageria at 4th position is going through πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‡³πŸ‡¬πŸ‘ŽπŸΎπŸ‡³πŸ‡¬πŸ’©πŸ’©πŸ’©
