City staying silent on De Lille's spouse

2012-11-05 12:00

Cape Town - City of Cape Town officials have apparently refused to comment on the arrest of Mayor Patricia De Lille's husband at the weekend for reckless and negligent driving, according to a report on Monday.

The Cape Argus reported that De Lille's husband Edwin was arrested on Friday in Pinelands, with the mayor explaining he had had a stroke.

The newspaper submitted questions to city officials who usually comment on traffic violations. They apparently forwarded the query to De Lille's spokesperson Solly Malatsi.

The mayor responded by saying: "I thank the police for stopping under that health condition and the law must take its course. All evidence about his health condition will be put before the court and we must respect the independence of the courts."

    If he had a blue light, he would not have been arrested. If he had a strok how could he be arrested?.

      What is a 'strok'?

      stokes present in many ways. They may mimic intoxication; confusion, loss of inhibition, drowsiness, clumsiness. You could argue he should be arrested if his stroke occured before getting into that car. Police arent doctors; theyre not even proper police.

    The manner in which this matter is handled by the authorities is suspicious. I hope this is not a cover up.
