The Jamaican woman whose picture was used to encourage voters in Gauteng to register to vote – says she never gave the party permission to use her photo.
Errice Alicia Anderson was trending last week when a picture of her wearing a swimsuit in ANC colours appeared on the Gauteng ANC’s twitter account.
“What do you make of this new ANC swimwear? #Registration Week #VoteANC” read the Tweet.
Oh wow, they Even added that ANC logo on the swimsuit pic.twitter.com/ScLObBuT3K

The tweet was soon removed as some criticised the ANC of being ‘sexist’ and the party apologised.
The Jamaican woman took to Instagram to address the issue and said that she had never heard of the ANC.
