ANC lambastes media on election behaviour
Malusi Gigaba took direct aim at the media during a post-election press conference yesterday.
The ANC's head of campaigning for this election, Malusi Gigaba, took direct aim at the media during a post-election press conference yesterday.
"You campaigned hard against the ANC and we beat hard. You stuck your necks out asking people not to vote for the party, but we defeated you. We have a robust democracy and we know you've never loved us and we don't have a problem with that."

On Saturday night Zuma said, "Newspapers wrote very eloquently about the failures of the ANC and they claim to know the party, but I can tell you they don't know the ANC."
It does seem that Zuma and the party are hugely frustrated with the recent focus on government's spending on the president's Nkandla home, which his officials claimed were just security upgrades.
