Zille denies being chased out of Khayelitsha

Newly elected Cape Town mayor Helen Zille has rejected reports that an angry mob forced her and two other mayoral committee members to retreat to the local police station in Khayelitsha over the weekend. Her spokesperson Robert McDonald says Zille was invited to discuss housing concerns in the area and some ANC councillors and protestors were angry that they had not been invited to the meeting. He said the ANC councillors were later included and some progress was made regarding housing for people. Zille plans to return to Khayelitsha tomorrow to continue the talks.
