You don't have to become a scientist to see that the ANC is captured - caller

Wandi in Johannesburg called in on Breakfast with Phemelo Motene to express his unhappiness with the latest happenings within the ANC.

He says he is a member of the African National Congress but him and his family have made a vow never to vote for the ANC come 2019 elections.

He touched on the latest comments on social media that the leaked Gupta emails are not real, saying that people are in denial as well as those that are defending President Jacob Zuma.

It was very disturbing listening to South Africans saying that these emails are not authentic, that they are being fabricated.

Wandi, Caller

Our people are in denial. Members of the African National Congress in particular are in denialism.

Wandi, Caller

These gains of our democracy did not come on a silver platter, some of us made serious sacrifices.

Wandi, Caller

You don't have to become a scientist to see that the ANC is captured, the country has been give literally on a silver platter to the elite Gupta family
