Zille to 'set record straight' on Mazibuko

Vote Helen Zille
Cape Town – DA leader Helen Zille has promised to “set the record straight” after reports on Sunday that she had said she “made” the party’s former parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko.

“I don't mind being excoriated for things I did say, but not for things I didn't.  My newsletter, later today, will set the record straight,” Zille tweeted her more than 420 000 followers on Twitter on Sunday after many South Africans had taken to the social network to air their outrage at the reports.

According to the Sunday Times report, at a federal executive meeting on Friday, Zille said she had made Mazibuko and saved her several times. She also implied that Mazibuko had been incompetent and that she had been out of her depth.

Responding to some of the tweets on Sunday Zille said, “I never made any attacks. These are distorted, selective leaks from a private FEDeX meeting.”

Mazibuko, who had been the DA’s parliamentary leader for the last three years, shocked the country last weekend by announcing her resignation from the position, saying she was leaving to study at Harvard in the United States.
