JOHANNESBURG – Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane has blamed the protests in Alexandra on the African National Congress (ANC) government.

Residents have been protesting over lack of service delivery in the area since Wednesday morning.

Maimane told Eyewitness News that his party could not be blamed for lack of service delivery in Alexandra.

He said the DA did its best to deliver on promises made and he praised Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba for the work done so far.

Maimane said the ANC was playing “a dirty politician game”. He added he was not surprised by the Alexandra community’s angry.
