Moodey says claims of conflict of interest against Helen Zille raise ethical questions.

"Ethically speaking a person needs to interrogate this. Everything you say has an impact on the party you represent. She needs to give us an account and I'll ask her that. As a leader, you need to take repercussions for your actions"

"I don't wanna pass judgment on her. I believe its something she needs to give account for."
