Helen Zille on governing by DA's new Mayors: Will be like walking barefoot over mountains.
In this in-depth interview, DA Federal Council chair Helen Zille offers a sobering view after the surprise ascension last night of her party's candidates to the Mayoral parlours of SA's leading cities. She is under no illusion of challenges that lie ahead to rid local government of corrupt ANC cadres. Zille says negotiations will now be even more earnest as her party works at securing written commitment from potential coalition partners to ensure a stable governance structure can be secured. In this “morning after” discussion with Alec Hogg of BizNews, Zille unpacks the challenges that lie ahead after SA's Watershed Election where the long-time ruling ANC's share of the vote fell below 50% for the first time, ushering in a widescale shakeup of the country's governance.
