Would you rock these ANC sneakers?

The African National Congress has been struggling to deliver for years now. While there are many who are staunch supporters of the ruling party, millions of people are losing faith every year.

An electricity crisis, high cost of living, corruption, nepotism, and a struggle to deliver quality service to the people have contributed to the lack of faith in the party.

Many of those who saw the post couldn’t wait to rush to the comment section to roast the shoes.

According to many of them, they wouldn’t be caught dead in shoes that represented the ANC. Others joked that the ANC lovers are probably lining up to buy it.
