The African National Congress is not resting over the earlier announcement of the fortuitous suspension of the Democratic Alliance premier Helen Zille. The ANC says Helen Zille must immediately step down as Western Cape premier following her suspension from the Democratic Alliance. According to them:

“She Is not good enough for the DA and is also not good enough for the Western Cape province,”┬áthe ANC in that province said on Saturday after the DA announcement.

Zille is barred from party events pending the outcome of disciplinary processes related to controversial tweets she made defending colonialism.

But she remains the provincial premier.

The ANC said: “It is clear the DA does not have the political will to deal properly with its past leader Zille by recalling her from her government position.” The party advised the DA that the general public is watching them from the sideline and this singular incident will test the true nature of the opposition party.
