Helen Zille and Team No!!

03 November 2012, 08:21

It was not long ago when DA marched to COSATU headquarters. The march was meant to be peaceful but it later became violent. Members from the DA and the trade union got injured.

I was reminded of this when I heard Helen Zille and her team are set to visit Nkandla to inspect roads and later attempt to enter Zuma’s compound.

The rest of the country agrees that the 203+million upgrade to Zuma’s home is too much. We also are concerned about the Town that is going to be built with over a billion. Luckily, the Public Protector is investigating the that issue.

When DA announced they will march to COSATU headquarters Vavi quickly warned them not to. The same happened to their announcement of Nkandla inspection. ANC is still trying to convince Zille to change her mind about the visit with their concern being the safety of the DA.

Helen Zille is a leader of an opposition to the ANC. She is not Thuli Mandonsela and does not have constitutional rights to walk in and inspect Zuma’s home. Just like Zuma or any leader of a South African political party cannot rock up and inspect Helen’s suburban home. Her visit is provocative, unnecessary and it’s obviously for calculated for political points.

Politically, KZN is a territory of the ANC, IFP and now the recent NFP. All three political parties in the province have repeatedly shown South Africans that they are not afraid to use violence.

Now, I am concerned about Helen and her team’s safety in KZN. ANC supporters and Zuma family in KZN will not see their visit as a friendly one. Who knows how they will respond.

Or maybe that is what Helen Zille wants. She wants to visit Nkandla, get Zuma’s supporters angry and fight her off violently so another DA vs. ANC scandal will emerge.

I am not in any way condoning the use of violence. But we can all agree on this one, it’s not going turn out good.
