Eskom’s former acting chief executive Matshela Koko took to Twitter to publicly castigate the distribution of money by ANC treasurer Paul Mashatile in a door-to-door campaign at Limpopo.
A tweet shared by Mpho Mathoho reads: “ANC treasurer Paul Mashatile distributes money to worshipers in Limpopo, where he goes door to door. ANC staff have not been paid for at least three months via @PelaneM # Election2021 # ANCLGE2021 [sic]. “

It is not known how much money was given to the community.
Koko retweeted the post and wrote: “This is wrong in many ways. Mara ke is the ANC we know from @PaulMashatile and @CyrilRamaphosa. Post money when your own ANC staff have not been paid [sic]. “
Speaking to the community, Mashatile urged the advisers not to “come with their plans” but to implement the ANC’s plans instead. He said improving service delivery will be a priority for the ruling party.
Meanwhile in Ekurhuleni, President Cyril Ramaphosa did not receive a warm welcome from members of the local Tembisa community as they vowed not to vote for the ANC in the next elections.
According to a media report, community leader Khosi Mahlangu expressed frustration at the “unfair procedures” in the electoral district of Swaziland, as the community was not given the opportunity to choose a candidate. As a result, Mahlangu said the community was not going to vote.
