Durban - Former DA leader Helen Zille took to Twitter on Friday to dispel rumours that she was starting a new political party.

"There's a crazy rumour doing the rounds that I plan to start a new political party.

"Nothing could be further from the truth. My blood is blue," she tweeted.

The tweet was retweeted more than 80 times with @kganya20 saying "Malema's blood was once green."

Zille responded saying "No, it was yellow. And you know what yellow symbolises."

Jeffrey Moatshe simply said, "No smoke without fire."

Zille tweeted back saying, "Except when people with motives light matches."

Zille also tweeted that everything that she was doing was in support of the party’s values of freedom, fairness and opportunity.
