JOHANNESBURG - ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule has rejected allegations that he's been buying votes in the Western Cape.
On the campaign trail in Philippi on Saturday, he gave a resident R400 after looking in her fridge.
Magashule dismissed the claims as "nonsense".
"What I did for that family is the right thing I've done [sic]," he said.
The Democratic Alliance took sole control of the provincial government after 2009 elections.
The ANC has been unable to reclaim the province, losing ground to the DA over time.
