DA lukewarm about ID apology
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.
