Don’t let Helen Zille fade from your mind. She’s still around, representing my beloved Knysna to the WC Legislature. She must answer for her crimes. Her retirement must be a jail cell.
At this shocking 2016 meeting hosted by her, I was the only person who wasn’t DA mad. I was in a hostile room one month before the 2016 local elections.
DA LIES & HYPOCRISY
The DA used tactic 101 which is to give me the first questions, and then try dismiss me, so that everything else that happened thereafter (i.e. soft questions from DA supporters) would make the meeting appear a success.
Ironically, Councillor Peter Myers was against me here, yet, without apology or speaking to me, he then conveniently adopted my position regards Tourism when the DA tried to remove him in 2018.
Helen Zille tried to pass the buck by pretending to be ignorant but the fact is that she and her senior staff had been made well aware by me.
HELEN ZILLE’S BODYGUARDS
I remained seated the whole meeting, even when the microphone was in my hand. Yet two of Zille’s bodyguards tried to intimidate me, one standing against my left side, the other pressing against my knees.
Instead of my fellow citizens being horrified, they acted like a pack of animals, joining the chant for me to leave the room that was initiated by the DA caucus.
The Citizen Newspaper, allied to the Knysna-Plett Herald via the Caxton group, ignored context to only publish a video clip of the chanting, with header: “Zille tells off blogger for ‘hijacking’ meeting”. After I blogged about the propaganda, a short description was added.
ZILLE GUILTY UNDER PRECCA
Zille met me after the meeting, Despite interruptions from Myers, I expressed the sad state of Knysna and the topics in the flyer (read it) I’d handed out at that meeting (she’d received a copy from me and DA Treasurer Dee Hollely).
The issues included DA candidate Martin Young’s horrific attempts to destroy me and the forensic report concerning DA candidate Rowan Spies’ fraud and graft.
Zille promised to act – she didn’t.
Instead, she allowed both to become councillors. That Young continued his intimidation for three years can only mean that’s what Zille wanted. Spies and his wife, who was made the DA mayor, were then protected no matter what they did. I recently reported how his wife was promoted to the National Assembly after a forensic report found her guilty of many crimes.
The read receipts I received from Helen Zille, after I emailed detailed information, further implicates her under PRECCA (Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act).
