Zille to learn fate on Sunday


Residents of Hofmeyr in the Eastern Cape should vote for the Democratic Alliance during upcoming by-elections to teach President Jacob Zuma a lesson, DA leader Helen Zille said.

CAPE TOWN - Western Cape Premier and former Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Helen Zille will know on Sunday whether she will face any disciplinary measures for controversial tweets praising colonialism.

In a statement on Monday, James Selfe, chairman of the DA’s federal executive said a report compiled by Glynnis Breytenbach, the party’s chairwoman of the federal legal commission, has been submitted to him.

“This report will now be discussed at a Federal Executive meeting, to be held on Sunday.”

On March 16, Zille tweeted: “For those claiming legacy of colonialism was ONLY negative, think of our independent judiciary, transport infrastructure, piped water etc”.

Zille later apologised for the remarks, but not before an internal investigation was launched.
