It has been reported that Western Cape Premier Helen Zille has declared her respect for Jacob Zuma’s position as President.
Going against the will of the African National Congress, Zille opened the Western Cape legislature this morning. Zille, who attended a three-day national Cabinet lekgotla in Pretoria this week, said she had been encouraged by the amiable and professional working relationship displayed. She added that she leant a great deal.
Zille says she got the sense that Zuma was sincere when he invited South Africans to participate in democratic debate to air their respective views.
