DA questions ANC figures on unemployment

JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance&39;s parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko has dismissed the employment statistics presented by Minister of Economic Development Ebrahim Patel.

At the DA&39;s final election rally at the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg on Saturday, Mazibuko told eNCA that she questioned Patel&39;s figures on job creation at the Great Debate.

Said Mazibuko: "I am pretty confident that Ebrahim Patel made up some of the figures."

She reaffirmed the DA&39;s stance on job creation and that the province with the lowest figures of unemployment was the Western Cape -- a DA-run province.

Patel has denied the allegations and said he would respond to them at an ANC rally on Sunday.
