Zille seceding 'not a good idea'

2009-05-28 08:42
Johannesburg - It was not a good idea for Western Cape Premier Helen Zille to behave as if she was going to secede from South Africa, ANC chairperson Baleka Mbete said on Wednesday night.

"Premier Zille is also participating in the government lekgotla. It has sunk into her head that behaving like you are going to secede from this beautiful South Africa is not a good idea," Mbete said.

Mbete was speaking at a NAFCOC/ANC Women's League gala dinner at the Klipriviersberg nature reserve, south of Johannesburg.

Congratulations were due to Zille as she was one of five female premiers, "but... she might want to rethink her Cabinet in the Western Cape," said Mbete.

Zille has come under fire recently for appointing an all-male Cabinet to run the province.
