DA will not act against De Lille for EFF appearance

DA will not act against De Lille for EFF appearance

Let's leave the rest for Sunday when we have laid Mam'Winnie to rest.

Selfe said there were other scenarios where politicians appeared on the platforms of other parties, but the individual would usually inform the party, which De Lille had not done, he said. [DA leader Mmusi Maimane] was also invited to speak at the event by the EFF, but due to prior commitments, he could not attend.

On Thursday, the DA federal executive chairperson James Selfe said that De Lille had not obtained permission from him to attend the EFF memorial service.

"We knew people did not want her because she was a threat to them and, so at the conference of 1993, we brought her back as the leader of the ANCWL".

She said she would not engage her party's statement that she should explain herself for attending an EFF-organised event.

De Lille meanwhile was unavailable to comment on the issue at the time of publication, telling News24 she was in a meeting.

These kinds of big instances which make people sit p, even regulators and say "Yeah well maybe it's time to legislate a bit more". Zuckerberg told lawmakers that Facebook had now removed the option for advertisers to exclude ethnic groups from targeting.

She is now serving as a mayor thanks to opposition parties and rebel DA councillors who defied their party's motion of no confidence in her to keep her in power.

"Ms De Lille's attendance at the memorial yesterday (Wednesday) is a matter between her and the EFF leadership and not the DA".

She tweeted: "I am so sad tonight".

She told the crowd that Madikizela-Mandela had given her a call asking about her troubles in the DA. "And I said: "Mama Winnie‚ I have got it under control but thank you for your support"‚" said De Lille.

"On one level it's understandable that someone would want to pay tribute to Winnie Madikizela-Mandela", Selfe said.

She later sobbed as she took her seat.
