With the aborted invasion of the Nkandla homestead of President Jacob Zuma, DA leader has gone way overboard in her quest to usurp power from the ANC.
That the President's Nkandla homestead is receiving an upgrade at government expense doesn't give her the right of moving into the place like an imperialist army of occupation.
Zille and her coterie were on Sunday in Nkandla to allegedly inspect improvements to the President's residence which has allegedly been upgraded to the value estimated at about R200million.
If Zille had honest intentions, she would have followed established and well-known channels to obtain whatever information she requires about the private residence of the President.
Ironically Zille attempted to storm Nkandla after asking the Public Protector to conduct an investigation on the President's private residence.This exposes her desperation and hypocrisy.
Since her ascendance to the DA leadership, Zille has degenerated the party into a rag-tag army that is nostalgic to good old apartheid days. She has of course invested in a few black faces to ease her forays into black neighbourhoods scavenging for votes.
It is this nostalgia and desperation for power that informs Zille's theatrics or what President Jacob Zuma's spokesperson Mac Maharaj calls "disingenuous publicity gimmicks."
That's how short-sighted the desperate DA house-wife can be. Her little publicity stunt has exposed her bankruptcy and how far her desperation for power can drive her.
