DA Western Cape Leader Bonginkosi Madikizela has reacted appallingly to the DA’s crisis in Knysna where their Mayor of choice, Eleanore Spies, has been dethroned, replaced by Mark Willemse, another DA councillor (who is also their Speaker for Eden District).
Madikizela has lied to the Media and the Public that he’s unaware of problems with their ex-Mayor i.e. her failure to act on corruption in Knysna. Instead of acknowledging the ongoing crisis in Knysna, he’s treating it as a coup by illegals rather than a democratically elected Council operating as it should, pimples and all, without instruction from Cape Town. In doing so, Madikizela shows his and his party’s true colours, BLUE BEFORE YOU.
Let me briefly explain his lies and possible motive…
Madikizela’s latest comments don’t stand alone. On May 27 this year, Madikezela tripped himself up badly on Facebook, denying the DA’s responsibility to investigate and claiming my allegations were “without substance”. He did so before on the Facebook page of Mawande Jara, radio station manager for Radio Zibonele. Madikizela did everything to avoid me in the comment threats, making statements to others that equated to an unbelievable, “It’s not my fault.” He obviously also avoided photos of the evidence of corruption package I sent him in January this year (view at bottom of this page).
In the old days, Bonginkosi Madikizela was part of an ANC mob that physically forced DA candidates out of his township. But politics, as is its nature, has twisted and turned to the point where he became DA in the Helen Zille faction. Zille may be out of the DA Federal Executive’s favour but Madikizela is still in. Bantu Holomisa, the UDM’s fiery and intelligent leader, claimed on social media that part of the attack on Patricia de Lille was so that Madikizela could replace her as Cape Town’s Mayor.
Wherever final truth lies, the fact is that Madikizela knows which side his future toast is buttered – BLUE BEFORE YOU.
The DA has become so blind to anything but their self-interest that they’ve failed to notice that there’s enormous rejoicing on social media, across race and party lines, by residents in Knysna. The loudest happy comments are by DA members!
A DA that cannot wake up, a DA blue before you, isn’t a DA that can ever govern South Africa. And damn Bonginkosi Madikizela for being just another political liar we can never trust… but let me allow the man to have almost the last word here, repeating what he said at the DA Congress last year:
“To all the leaders who were elected with me, I’m asking God to give us wisdom to lead his people with humility.”
God or Godzille?
