Why Did Lindiwe Mazibuko Quit?

13 May 2014, 12:06
The Sunday Times has reported that Lindiwe Mazibuko has quit her position as the DA's parliamentary leader. It doesn't add up to the good story she and Helen Zille are telling because Mazibuko informed the newspaper before Zille and said that she'd made the decision last September to take a one year sabbatical to study for a masters in the Public Administration Programme at the Kennedy School of Government in the US.

Let's not forget that Mazibuko and Zille apparently had a falling out over the DA's BEE policy last November and it was rumoured that Mmusi Maimane was Zille's new favourite. It was alleged that the DA put R100 million into their Gauteng campaign in an attempt to make Maimane premier. They lost that bid but Maimane will be going to parliament but not, he says, to replace Mazibuko. Zille won't be going to parliament as she has announced her second term as premier of the Western Cape. So who will take the position?

Will Mazibuko rejoin the DA? Does this help her negotiate a better position. Are US interests DA sponsors? Or has Mazibuko just had enough of the oppressive heckling of the ANC in parliament?

There is more to this story than we have been told but without more facts we an only speculate.

Focus on what truly matters

“Never” is an infectious word, like a flu virus. Once you’ve caught it, everything loses its sparkle. It’s commonplace to hear people say and swear that they will never do, forget or say something. Read more...

The article by Floyd Shivhambu on the absence of Dr. Blande Nzimande in the struggle is impressive in a highly qualified sense – the narrative and argumentation flow seamlessly to prove its point.  Read more...
