A planned Democratic Alliance (DA) anti-racism march “seeks to mask the Mmusi Maimane facade and unite South Africans behind pretence and falsehood”‚ the South African National Civic Organisation said.

The organisation’s Jabu Mahlangu described DA KwaZulu-Natal chairperson Zwakele Mncwango’s proposal “an insult to millions of victims of racism”.

"The party as a bastion of racists should be focusing on internal processes and programmes to rid itself of puppet masters who are longing for HF Verwoerd and the 1953 Separate Amenities Act to exclude certain sections of the populace from beaches as well as economic empowerment programmes‚" Mahlangu said.

He also said the “DA has due to recent social media tweets by its prominent members lost the moral high ground to lead an anti-racism march”.

"We need to redouble effort to defeat racism and put nation building‚ reconciliation and social cohesion on the centre stage of our national discourse."
