On Tuesday, 23 June, Helen Zille, Chair of the Democratic Council, and a leader of liberalism in Africa, gave credit to FW de Clerk for dismantling Apartheid, and discredited the ANC’s role. Although that could be open to debate, she experienced outrage when she stated that, “LOL [laugh out loud], there are more racist laws today than there were under apartheid.”
The division between whites and blacks in the DA was again highlighted when Mbali Ntuli, who is contesting for the party’s leadership position, responded to Zille’s critics with: “I hear you and as I say I’ve commented ad nauseum. It’s part of the reason I’m running, so that people get an alternative view of the DA. It’s because I do not think anybody that can seriously say that SA post 1994 is more racist than Apartheid can be reasoned with… The DA has serious issues to grapple with if it wants to claw back from the pits we are in.”
DA MP Hlanganani Gumbi and Gauteng MPL Khume Ramulifho have laid complaint with Federal Council Deputy Chair Thomas Walters and party leader John Steenhuisen.
