DA gives De Lille blessing to change parties

DA gives De Lille blessing to change parties

The City will only pay for me when I go on official business.

De Lille's party, the Democratic Alliance, has since said it would be asking her for reasons why she attended, saying she had not informed the party beforehand, as was protocol.

The DA also stated that De Lille is free to move to any political party she wishes, as this is a free democracy.

Speaking at the party's memorial ceremony held in the Free State town of Brandfort (where Madikizela was "exiled" to by the apartheid government), he criticised ANC leaders like Gwede Mantashe for focusing on the negativity, instead of mourning the leader.

EFF leader Julius Malema confirmed that De Lille would be part of its programme.

If people want to make this an issue, I think it is very disrespectful to Mam'WinnieMandela. "And I said: "Mama Winnie‚ I have got it under control but thank you for your support"‚" said De Lille.

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

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

She said Madikizela-Mandela's family had invited her to the EFF memorial on Wednesday, adding that in her culture - African culture - one did not need to be invited to attend a memorial service.

Addressing the crowd at the memorial‚ De Lille spoke fondly about Madikizela-Mandela and their relationship.

The party will therefore formally ask for an explanation as to her reasons for attending, he said.

Everyone can understand that she would wish to be part of a memorial service for Mam'Winnie, because this is a huge icon that has passed on.

Malema also said that the likes of Mantashe did not know the kind of sacrifices Winnie Madikizela-Mandela made for the ANC and the country, so he had no right to criticise her in the media.
