DA lukewarm about ID apology

By Nadia Samie

The Democratic Alliance in the Western Cape has welcomed the Independent Democrats announcement that they do not support MEC for Local Government and Housing MEC Richard Dyantyi’s proposal to change the system of governance in the metro.

ID leader Patricia de Lille made a public apology for voting for an ANC mayor following the March elections.

Provincial DA leader Theuns Botha, however, says that he hopes de Lille’s apology is sincere and not merely the result of internal party pressure. He says that it is possible that de Lille’s about-turn is only to avoid the public’s reaction to the proposed changes.

Botha says that, if de Lille is truly apologetic, she must withdraw her support of the ANC in the Cederberg, Bergriver, Saldanha, Witzenberg, Drakenstein, Breede Valley, Breede River, Winelands District, Overberg District and the West Coast District municipalities.

The DA must stop telling the ID to change in municipalities where the ID and the ANC constituted council. Why dont they do the same where the they work together with the ANC in Laingsburg, Beaufort West, Knysna, Central Karoo District Municipality, Prins Albert, and with ICOSA in Kannaland and Mosselbay

The DA choose to work with the ANC in Knysna, Beaufort West and Mosselbay. Why not with the ID- Is it alright for them to work with the ANC in rich municipalities where our people suffer? Both of them are LIERS!!! DEVILS!!!
