De Lille DA's Cape Town mayor candidate

2011-03-14 09:55

Cape Town - Patricia de Lille is the DA's mayoral candidate for Cape Town, party leader Helen Zille said on Monday.

"There were four candidates. They were put through a gruelling process. Only one person could emerge from it. And that is Patricia de Lille," Zille told reporters in Cape Town.

She said she was confident De Lille would "with her inner strength and determination, give it her all".

De Lille said she was "honoured" by the nomination before listing "achievements" by the Democratic Alliance in Cape Town.

"Under the leadership of the Democratic Alliance, things are getting better in Cape Town step by step, and with Cape Town's support, we can continue to deliver a better life for all, step by step," said De Lille.

"I am also very aware that there are many challenges that we need to work harder than ever on - we must create jobs and unlock opportunities for more people. We must make our neighbourhoods safer, and fight to rid our communities of drugs and substance abuse."

She said she would over the next few weeks present her "vision for how we can take Cape Town forward".

    GODZille r u trying to buy colored vote?

      AJ - 2011-03-14 10:02

      Does it need to be bought?

      willieman - 2011-03-14 10:08

      Are you saying Mrs Zille is a dictator? No my friend competency is the name of the game in this party

      Point Blank - 2011-03-14 10:09

      Why, Cape Town already has a coloured Mayor? Go back to bed, you clearly haven't woken up yet...

      spiderkzn - 2011-03-14 10:45

      Hmm what about Dan Plato current Mayor of Cape Town? You need to wake up and broad your mind.

      TBOOZE - 2011-03-14 10:53

      coloured ppl must b having a nervous breakdwn nw ,ANC also hv a coloured candidate ...any1 4 a round of blck label ?

      Other Justin - 2011-03-14 10:56

      You are a moron. De Lille was offered the position of premier before the last national elections and consequent merger of the DA and ID, she subsequently declined the position, so it is not a surprise that she is the mayoral candidate. Thank-you for admitting that you are a racist.

      The Patriot - 2011-03-14 11:42

      This is one lady that kicks the ANC's ass on every turn. I think she is a breath of fresh air.

      Richie - 2011-03-14 11:45

      The lack of critical thinking skills in ANC supporters are astounding. Is there a link between; ANC-membership and IQ maybe? I dont know... If herder boy and woodwork ace are the best you have to offer. A logical deduction would be that you are lacking if these are your best!

      Paul - 2011-03-14 12:04

      The only party buying vote's is the ANC. Food parcel anyone? , T-Shirt? yep its yellow just like the ANC character, Cowards who can only destroy when they dont get thier way, FACT that the colour of your skin is not the issue it is competancy and having a moral compass and a willingness to contribute and build something better. So when you and you party have finished blaming whites, coloured's and and other races. Histroy will repeat itself and show you up as the moron that you truly are. Africans have built no cities, no places of higher learning, no sanitation system, no wheel, and not even your own language was witten by yourselves ,No sea worthy ships, no trade routes (prior to white settlement). Now is your oppertunity CREATE a better South Africa and do something for EVERYONE and not just the ANC tenderpreneurs. So open a book and learn something because cleary you are just as misguided like the rest of South Africa. Africa has always been centuries behind the rest of the developed world. Your problems come for the fact that Africans havent developed past the bronze age (on thier own). So get an education and stop buring schools and pushing everything back into the dirt. You are poor and disadvantaged because you are more preoccupied with producing children you cannot support and leave it up to the State to support you. Maybe you should get off your butt do something for yourself. Handouts are not going to be here forever.

      Colin - 2011-03-14 14:13

      Hey, I'm not colored, so maybe I have no place commenting iro what you have said. But your comment does smack a little (a lot) of insulting the integrity of colored people. You are assuming they are for sale, and that their vote is one which could be bought..

      BilboBaggins - 2011-03-14 14:25

      Stop being so childish ''? The position of mayor is a serious position and requires the candidate with the best credentials, skills and expertise. Calling someone a nasty name is so immature. Grow up, please, and let go of your sawn-off old colour/race hangups.

      Jayjay001 - 2011-03-14 17:05

      @ illusional - the ANC picks Tony Ehrenreich but we'll fail to mention that piece of inconvenient truth.

      Warren - 2011-03-14 18:46

      @ pitch_black: How does it feel to know that Forrest, Forrest Gump sure has nothing at all on you! You are a prime candidate for some sort of senior ANC position.

      YEBOCOCO - 2011-03-14 22:23

      You shut up because the Western Cape is the best province in South Africa, LOOK THE SHAME about the provinces of ANC's maneged!!!!!!! We are tired to hear every time about the race. You are racist as like former apartheid era, you don't learn enough from the past!!!!!!!

      Oh gawd....another dumb one! Where the hell did you get that idea from? Go read up what real democracy is!

      Carlo Vermeulen - 2011-03-15 14:45

      Since the ANC is clear on its stance AGAINST white, colored and Indian people I don't think that its needs to be bought. I see you don't know how this works - you vote for the party that has your best interest - not the ones that match your color - tsk tsk tsk

      Jonny - 2011-03-15 15:46

      @Paul, I hate to tell you mate but the English (and most of Europe) didn't develop their own way of writing, we stole it from the Romans. And no trade routes? Really? Then why is there evidence that there was trade with China at Mapungubwe before the first piece of 'English' literature was ever written, I think they supplied around 40% of China's gold in the 1100s. Oh, and Mapungubwe was a city. Oh, and I've seen the ruins near the Umfolozi River that were used by Iron Age ZULU blacksmiths long before whitey started influencing. In fact archeology suggests European development was started in the middle-east a spread. So stop using developmental 'theories' to suggest that a group of people is inferior, it belittles everyone involved and slows down our evolution.

      ID was never succesful hence taken over by DA, I doubt your statement...

      Other Justin - 2011-03-14 11:05

      @Stofpad, the ID was NEVER 'taken over' by the DA. De Lille chose to merge her party with the official opposition, exactly what you are suggesting in the comment that follows this one.

      The Patriot - 2011-03-14 12:03

      @ Baboon, you really need some help.

      DW - 2011-03-14 12:31

      @ Baboon - why do you have to resort to a personal attack on someone you dont agree with? Please tell me what Alan's body shape has to do with the situation? From your putrid comments I suspect you have less brains than you credit Alan with.

      blondetopaz - 2011-03-14 12:49

      Alan, ignore the aptly named Baboon shepard. His nic says it all. I have never meet ol Patsy but i am sure she has all the qualities you have mentioned. She is tougher than old biltong left in the sun. We need more politicians like her.

      Marius - 2011-03-14 13:37

      I agree Allan. Excellent choice. Unlike any ANC member she's a hard working person with ethics.

      Colin - 2011-03-14 14:22

      Oh great Baboon... If you hear someone calling your name, it may just be the villagers that are missing you. Clearly in your parallel universe in some far far away galaxy, body size is inversely proportional to brain capacity. I'd love to muse over the official studies proving your theory sometime, but in the interim, as I suspect that these are only available in that thing the rest of us would call "a figment of your imagination", I suspect I shall opt for believing Alan's version, and wish Ms De Lille all the best.

      I disagree. There will be too many conflicting policies and internal struggles are unavoidable. Although, I do believe that the DA and ID are an excellent combination. Both parties have similar ideals - they are driven by honesty, hard-work, dedication, and making a difference. I also believe that these two parties care more for the poor than even the ANC. Dave

      Ya Santapola, tell us another one....We'll see about the ANC taking Cape Town. I doubt it. If anyone is still voting for the African National Circus, then they are admitting that they are racist. Welcome to the club, you are a part of the problem.

No need to buy any vote, just wait for the anc to show their true colours regarding other population groups in SA.

      Makes sense to do so don't you think. We need a bigger and better opposition otherwise we wasting our time.

      DW - 2011-03-14 10:58

      The DA policies are very similar to the ANC and IDC policies, so I dont think it is such a big move. She has not sold her soul. She is being practical and recognising that it makes sense to combine and strengthen the opposition. The ANC is running scared.

      gizzy - 2011-03-14 12:51

      Same as the Nats went over to the ANC! I bet you saw nothing wrong with that hey?

    Shocking! It's not like we didn't see this one coming! Pat has to get a consolation prize for abandoning her loyal voters for money, but then again that's politics. But I still believe de Lille must be the biggest idiot (besides COPE), because it won't be long before the honeymoon is over...

      Grant - 2011-03-14 10:56

      No Evelyn - you are the idiot. Patericia came to realise that her voter base was so small (even though loyal) that she was inefectual in the role of opposition due to the size of her voice. By merging with the DA, her voice became larger and she became more effective. This to the greater good of the country - not her personal finances. Have you become so accepting of the ANC levels of personal greed that you can not accept that there are people who are genuinely dedicated to the country and the people, not just themselves.

      Evelyn Maarman - 2011-03-14 11:07

      Who said I support the ANC? I support no one in this country because no one can be trusted! Do you honestly think De Lille did it for the "love" of politics... yeah right!

      Moi1980 - 2011-03-14 11:18

      I'd say she realised that she needed to form part of a bigger party to get things going the way that they should be. And if by not supporting anyone you mean that you won't be voting, then you are a very big part of the problem.

      TBOOZE - 2011-03-14 11:48

      true Evelyn, ID hs officialy gone under ...remember wat happened 2 IFP, UDM .also merge wit DA nd after the honey moon they lost a lot of votes.i cn sense a small party claiming 2 represent coloured ppl emerging soon

      The Patriot - 2011-03-14 12:19

      @Evelyn, If you support no one then shut your pie hole. You have no say in this countries future because you dont vote. You accept the ANC and the way they govern.Get off this forum your opinion doesn't count.

      E.Nuff - 2011-03-14 12:37

      @TBOOZE - I understand that Afircan National Circus supporters, such as yourself, have never felt the need to bolster your opinions with real facts, however, your claims in this forum that the DA has taken over the UDM, and IFP cannot go unchallenged. Do some research, and you will find that these parties were, and continue to be independent. By research, I mean go and look it up, rather than taking advice from Dr. Wayne Kerr, and Ophelia Cox. Once you have done this you can present an opinion that is based on fact, rather than opinion presented as fact - a method so beloved of the Afican National Circus fraternity.

      Other Justin - 2011-03-14 12:44

      De Lille was offered the position of premier before the last national elections and consequent merger of the DA and ID, she subsequently declined the position, so it is not a surprise that she is the mayoral candidate. It is by no means a consolation prize and she never sold her party out, she could have 'sold her party out' to become premier if she wished. Badly informed comment.

  • Zakhele - 2011-03-14 10:33

    The DA volkust must be reeling. What happened to the good succession plan? Do people just walk into the DA and get rewarded with such high positions? What about those people who have been loyal and served the DA very well? I think people like Athol Trollip, Dianne Kohler and Walters should join the ANC. DA has overlooked its deserving candidates and let them down at the expense of a political appointment (and not capability and right candidate for the job with the right credentials). Come Trollip, Kohler and Dr Wilmot James! Of course you can the ANC. You deserve far better than Hellen Zille can give you. She has just allowed outsiders thus undermining you’re efforts over the years. We will receive you with open arms here, and you know that. You can then contribute with your skills and argue your views inside the ANC movement.

      jiamalunga - 2011-03-14 10:41

      Ja well one cadre deployement is not that bad considering the ANC's record

      AJ - 2011-03-14 10:43

      @Zakhele - because if Zille had chosen one of them, I suppose she'd be called a racist, right? At any rate, De Lille's credentials speak for themselves.

      Grant - 2011-03-14 10:46

      Zakhele. Do you not realise that the various people you mention are in positions where they are doing sterling work for both the party and the country! That these people may be happy where thay are and have no desire for the mayoral position! It is the ANC mindset of 'rewarding' cadres with positions for which they are neither suited nor qualified that is leading to so many problems.

      Peter Merrington - 2011-03-14 10:49

      Stuff and nonsense. People like Wilmot James and Dianne Kohler aren't in it for the power. And they have senior positions in Parliament anyway. The DA leadership understands what's good for the city and the party, not about jobs for pals and cronies which is the ANC way. We seek the best person for the job.

      Zakhele - 2011-03-14 10:52

      @AJ- so you saying Helen Zille’s decision is informed and influenced by what people would think and not the best candidate for the job? On De Lille’s credentials I don’t know much of her other than insulting white people and calling for them to be killed (in the PAC and Azapo) back in the apartheid days, and then later turning around checking on the ANC corruption- which does exist anyway. Is Patricia De Lille capable of anything innovative and modern day civilization? Is that what we call credentials?

      willieman - 2011-03-14 10:53

      What about Jimmy Manye Zakhele?,When is ANC so -called cadres is fine ,even if they are incompetend and have questionable credentials.Come on Zakhele i,m sure you can do much better than this.Open up your eyes and look into the future for children.

      Zakhele - 2011-03-14 10:59

      I did not say nor imply that Athol, Wilmot and Dianne must be the ones to govern Cape Town. But I am saying their preferred candidate that they have been grooming over the years was overridden by mama Zille. End of the story!

      DW - 2011-03-14 11:01

      And you think if any of these candidates join the ANC they will be rewarded with posts? The best candidate for the job got it, which is more than you can EVER say for ANC

      SH4Ne - 2011-03-14 11:11

      Unlike the ANC the people in the DA don't always jostle for positions. They join the party to help the people. No matter what position they get elected to they do their jobs with pride knowing that everyday they deliver on the promises of the DA. Every day it's a day closer to the demise of the ANC. Viva DA, Phansi ANC.

      @Zakhele - No I am not saying that at all - her selection of the 'all male' cabinet is proof of that, let's not forget. What I am saying is that whatever choice she made she was going to be in the firing line (using your example) hence to her credit she pays no attention and simply does what is best. She makes the right choices, not necessarily the popular ones.

      Enuff - 2011-03-14 11:35

      So Zakhele, as an ANC supporter (probably card carrying member) you are admitting that personal position and power is of a higher priority than welfare and growth of the country?

      Other Justin - 2011-03-14 12:47

      Zakhele, I don't think the DA works that way. It is the best person for the job, full stop. The ANC works that way, they deploy the people based on their political connections, not on their ability to do the work, that is why the country is in the mess that it is. The DA have it right, the best person for the job, rather than the most politically connected or 'next in line' approach.

      gizzy - 2011-03-14 12:57

      What's a vilkust Zakhele?

      gizzy - 2011-03-14 13:00

      Zakhele, Patrica wasn't appointed by Helen. She was ELECTED by the DA party of the Western Cape. Do you know what democratic elections are? She stood against three other candidates and won. But of course you aren't expected to understand that because you only know cadre deployment.

      Totman - 2011-03-14 13:21

      @Zakhele. I, not being a party member of DA, but knowing that there are others that are doing good deeds and working longer for the DA and being part of the DA's success, am surprised you did not also mentioned Theuns Botha, Coetzee etc. Why not???? Just see what you want again or maybe you are not informed well enough to comment???

      James - 2011-03-14 17:54

      That is typical ANC mentality. Change party because you never got to stick your feral snout in the trough. Those people you mentioned have brains and an ability to look forward and understand that a merger is in the best interests of the party. The only forward planning the ANC is capable of with regards to a party is deciding how much more tax payer money to spunk on western luxuries. DA onwards and upwards. Me thinks the true ANC colours will come out when under pressure. They are an autocratic movement that just happens to be winning in a democratic environment. I bet they will turn barbaric when the pressure begins to get applied. The are friends with barbaric regimes, so one could be forgiven for calling them barbarians.

      Sunny - 2011-03-15 10:47

      @Zakhele, Ms Zille cannot on her own appoint a candidate. Each candidate go through a very tough process to be selected by an independent panel. Our policies are strict on candidate selection. You apply for the job like any other job and then get interviewed. No favours there. Do you know perhaps if Dianne or Ahtol applied for the job? All of our efforts is for a better South Africa, not for fame or recognition. We do it for the cause, perhaps you've heard of it? An open opportunity society for ALL. But nice try tough, you gave it your best to discredit Ms Zille, but sadly you failed. We follow true democracy.

  • Trudy - 2011-03-14 10:38

    This is like a chess game, I think it is an excellent strategic move!! If it helps the DA get more votes, then that's great, it's not like the votes are being bought with booze and chickens!!! Well played Helen.

      Evelyn Maarman - 2011-03-14 10:42

      Do you honestly think the DA's going to win the ID vote? I think not, many of those people would rather vote for the ANC than for the DA... And De Lille sold her people out...

      zena-warrior - 2011-03-14 11:25

      sorry to hear you feel that way Evelyn. I think Patricia did the best for her people and choices were made for the best of the people and that will show in her work, she is an admiral person. Pity you don't see that and would rather vote for a government that would destroy all than a party trying to save it!!!!! see where it gets you and the future of this country.....

      City Life 2 - 2011-03-14 12:01

      Dear Evelyn Maarman You have just stated above that you do not support ANY party, which in my view makes ANY comment of yours... irrelevant. You are part of the bigger problem of apathy in SA. If you have not cast your vote it excludes you from participating in any forum where politics is the subject of the day. You sound like someone who would watch a baby play in the middle of the road without doing anything and then bitch and moan when that baby is struck by a car. Get my drift?

      The Patriot - 2011-03-14 12:31

      @Evelyn, If you support no one then shut your pie hole. You have no say in this countries future because you dont vote. You accept the ANC and the way they govern.Get off this forum your opinion doesn't count.

      Other Justin - 2011-03-14 12:50

      I agree Trudy, although I think there is more to it than a simple strategic move. Patricia has proven herself when it comes to being a watchdog for good governance, the woman can sniff out corruption and bad practice better than anyone. She will really do an excellent job. I can assure you, if I worked for Patricia, I would work my backside off, I would not want to get on her bad side.

      gizzy - 2011-03-14 13:02

      Evelyn, how would you know that. You don't support any party, remember? So, once again I say, shut up if you aren't prepared to vote.

  • Marco - 2011-03-14 10:47

    I think I could be mayor of Cape Town as I was born and bred there in the city but has not lived there since 1987.Has lived in New York,London and Chicago since I left the Republic and would really drive the local economy and infrastructure forward if elected.As a non-partisan government critic I would support a fiscal year budget in 2011 and effectively address the city's structural deficit.The future financial strength of Cape Town would grow dramatically as I would deliver the much needed services and reduce the city's operating cost to more match up with our recurring revenues for the city.Short term revenue funds and highly controversial privatization deals will be off the table for now.Give Capetonians two choices ie either impose fiscal austerity in order to reduce or eliminate the structural deficit or deliberately reduce the real value of the structural deficit by allowing inflation to pick up and devaluing the Rand.No public sector spending cuts and rises in taxes instead taxbreaks for low income families.No need for “Stalinist ruthlessness”either when I'm Mayor.

      Grant - 2011-03-14 11:05

      Great election poster Marco - an ape with a gun. You are delusional dude. Best stay in the USA. Unfortunately the economics you are referring to are state controlled policies over which the Cape Town mayor has no control.

  • OuWitBooi - 2011-03-14 10:47

    Patricia De Lille has always impressed me with her integrity. She has been pressing for a long time for the arms deal to be properly investigated. And asking for TravelGate and a whole lot of other ANC shady deals to be investigated. And pushing for women's rights while JZ grows his harem and collection of bastard children. Good luck Patricia and the DA - I have no doubt the ANC will see their sorry arse in the WC once more.

      thurnie - 2011-03-14 12:59

      hmmm.. interesting. De lille has a daughter whom she never raised, never fed and never supported.. and yet she becomes the moral pointer? oh please... she is such a joke, a puppet at the most - she will never rank higher in the DA! when the coloured people figure her out - then she becomes useless to the DA! and will be discarded like the rest!

  • 5cents - 2011-03-14 11:00

    I’m actually shocked at all the negative comments. Maybe Patricia de Lille believes truely in the DA policies and values. And out of my humble opinion they are very good policies and values. People are upset that cronyism wasn’t in play here and old DA members got the positions? DA mayor candidates are democratically elected by the party(with no infighting or court cases or boycotting may I add). That said de Lille has an excellent history. She is a people’s person who the City of Cape Town needs with gang wars and drug abuse. Under the banner and values of the DA this seems to me like a winning combination. Not to mention de Lille’s credentials and whistle blowing on corruption speaks for itself. Good luck Patricia and the DA in the coming election. Stick to the high road and growth through performance and not loyalty. And just a side note. The ID and DA membership voted many times on this merger. From its initial feasibility study to its final implementation. This is what the majority of the members of these two parties wanted and the integration so far has happened without any public fighting and fractures in the parties. The minority who weren’t happy with the merger left as is their right. Nothing was said against them and the left politics or found other political homes they feel more comfortable with. Isnt this great democracy at work? Building a stronger opposition to bring SA up to standard of a world class DEMOCARCY and not a one party state.

      OuWitBooi - 2011-03-14 11:12

      Yip, couldn't agree more. All of these racist ANC supporters will just have to see for themselves how well things will run under these two ladies, there is no talking sense to anyone when they have a racist agenda. The best way to convince someone of something is to show them, let them see for themselves how Cape Town will flourish.

      paulf - 2011-03-15 07:28

      @5cents, I must compliment you for your post. It is the truth and I believe that the DA/ID is the only future for SA and the only way to go. Look at the in house fighting within the ANC and court cases as they are all after a ride on the Gravy Train. They do not give a hoot for the people supporting them. All they give them is False Hope.

  • Chibuli - 2011-03-14 11:19

    As a first time voter, and new DA supporter, I endorse this move. The Zille/De Lille combination is good, not only for the Western Cape but South African politics in general. At last the South African people will see the ANC for the corrupt, incompetent, racist party it is, and will be able to see a democratic alternative in operation. The results will speak for themselves.

  • ColinG - 2011-03-14 11:29

    When you vote, it should be for the Party AND for the person. The majority of the Western Cape likes the Party called DA, and they like the person of De Lille. The same cannot be said of the ANC. The majority in this province hate the ANC even though they might fall in love with the person of Fransman. That is why the DA will have a big win here.

  • zena-warrior - 2011-03-14 11:32

      Can't you revolutionary tossers find something else to beat the DA with? The toilet saga is oh so last year.....Luckily for the DA, the ANC provide them with new 'material' on an hourly basis.... Smacks of desperation, when all you warmonges can refer to,is a few toilets (at least they have toilets) - UNLIKE the rest of your comrades in the ANC controlled provinces who are still squatting in the bush.

      DW - 2011-03-14 12:45

      You said it all SAFFA-CAT. They have to dig really deep to find SOMETHING to criticise the DA about. I remember at the last government elections the worst thing they could come up with about Helle Zille was that she had Botox treatments! If we have to start criticising the ANC's shortcomings there wouldnt be place on this forum for it all.

      Black people joining the DA are there for a reason you are right....because they found a political home they feel comfortable with. Because they like the values and policies of the party. Because they believe that this party can represent them in government. Because they are tired of corruption maybe? Tired of bad service delivery maybe? Tired of nepotism, cronyism and cadre deployment? The DA is for equal opportunity, free society. And so far they are living up to that pretty well. (Enter toilet saga responses here, do some proper research on the topic and you will see what actually happened. DA decided to try and give people more dignity by not having to share toilets with many other families and strangers and provide more than required by compensate for budget restraints they agreed with residents to enclose their own toilets for more toilers, which the majority of the people did without complaints. Now enter the ANCYL backed by the ANC to kick into propaganda overdrive) (Enter Zille is a white racist. Do your research. Zille was in hiding from apartheid police because she was helping black people and exposing apartheid cover ups. She had everything someone could want and she risked it all for a free South Africa.)

      @5cents, fully agree with you, but what most people don't seem to get, is that the toilet saga was started when the ANC WAS IN CONTROL OF THE WESTERN CAPE and the poor DA WAS LEFT TO FIX THEIR PROBLEMS AND THEY MADE SURE TO USE THIS AGAINST THE D.A. Why can't they just play fair and be responsible for their bad actions and try to rather build up this country and all it's people than try to run every province badly and steal so much.

  • tut - 2011-03-14 12:14

    If I may criticize the DA: 1)Too WC regionalized and perceived as not doing much if anything at all in other areas of South African in terms of attracting votes! i.e no significant influential black/Coloured and Indian representation at high level. 2)Too white in demographics and Senior leadership! This is the impression of most blacks, Indians and Coloureds! 3) Too "anti-ANC" instead of offering active constructive solutions, the DA complains and complains and .....and offers nothing in terms of counter solutions (especially from a National perspective). And finally...De Lille is not doing the DA any justice with her spoilt, emotional, insular demanour! Trevor Manual should lead the DA!

      OuWitBooi - 2011-03-14 12:29

      1) Watch this space on 18 May 2) Had you noticed that Patricia de Lille is not white? Not that anyone in the DA cares. 3) The DA is the opposition party - it is their job in a democratic parliamentary system to keep the government honest (or at least try - it's a difficult job with the ANC!!!). But take the trouble to read the DA manifesto before you pass judgement. 4) I'm sure that the DA would love to have someone of the calibre of Trevor Manuel. I would bet that he and his wife have discussed such a move, but I wonder what would happen to Maria's employability if she were married to a senior DA leader? I would love to be a fly on the wall during that discussion.

      DW - 2011-03-14 12:56

      1)The DA has repeatedly proven itself in areas where it has the majority vote, even if it is only in a specific ward in a greater, ANC run area. Where they do not have the majority vote, they consistently try to highlight what is wrong with the existing candidates to hold them accountable for the votes that they have received. 2) the senior leadership is elected based on everything except colour. If the best candidates happen to be white, that is who will be elected. I guarantee if Trevor Manuel joined the DA he would soon work himself into a senior post, purely on the basis of his work ethic and principles, not on the basis of colour 3) Refer to (1) - holding the ANC accountable for what is required of them in areas where they have won the vote is not counter productive. The DA gives criticism where is it due. Does the ANC ever listen to them? no, but at least they highlight it to the electorate so that they can vote better next time. De Lille has yet to prove herself in this position, but I do think that they took everything into account before they chose her as the best candidate for the job - something which the ANC has no idea of how to do.

      gizzy - 2011-03-14 13:13

    Is Patricia De Lille really the best candidate to run the city of Cape Town? Are you saying you didn’t have a better candidate before she arrived? If you did have, why give the job to stranger who has just arrived yesterday and whom you don’t fully know what her intentions are? Watch it the knife is very long!

      The Patriot - 2011-03-14 12:46

      Zakhele, DeLille's no stranger, everyone knows her opinion and agenda. She is one lady that has never shied away from standing up to be counted. So she isn't a whitey lover, but then so isn't any Black ANC member. She does however stand for whats right, more then any ANC politician and has the balls to get stuff done. You commented on changes in allegiance from PAC to DA? How about the the Apartheid NATS having found a home with the ANC? Ironic isn't it.

      zena-warrior - 2011-03-14 12:58

      was Malema this best candidate for the ancyl, were that not better candidates before he was born??? was there not a better candidate to run the country either???? why give the jobs to your friends and family rather than give it to someone who actually knows the job?????

      gizzy - 2011-03-14 13:15

      Hey dumbass. She was ELECTED by the DA in the Western Cape. She stood against three other candidates and won! Unlike the ANC's cadre deployment the DA actually elects their leaders.

      Other Justin - 2011-03-14 13:17

      I personally believe that she is. She has proven herself in parliament and is a mean watchdog when it comes to sniffing out corruption and bad practice. I am sure she will make an excellent 'manager' for the running of the City of Cape Town. In the DA it is all about who is the best person for the job, not, who is my biggest chommie for the job, it is not who you know, it is what you know.

      Zakhele - 2011-03-14 13:19

      @zena-warrior- Perhaps, that’s where my ANC looses me. In the past have likened defending the ANC to a cheating wife who is having an adulterous relationship with a neighbour but when the husband finds out he blames the neighbour and say his wife is innocent in all this, even though he found both of them gasping with joy in his very own house and bedroom.

      Zakhele - 2011-03-14 13:44

      In other word I am married to the ANC and remain loyal and committed to my marriage but I can’t help it by flirting with DA. But not in my ANC bed. Let’s go do it somewhere else, say in New Zealand or Australia?

      zena-warrior - 2011-03-14 14:28

      @Zakhele "In other words I am married to the ANC and remain loyal and committed to my marriage but I can’t help it by flirting with DA. But not in my ANC bed. Let’s go do it somewhere else, say in New Zealand or Australia?" Interesting analogy , I can't stop laughing

      rainbowgir - 2011-03-14 14:58

      So you have 4 wives? Makes sense now!

      The Patriot - 2011-03-14 15:38

      Zakkele, I admire your loyalty however like a cheating wife, who doesn't stop cheating ,you kick her to the curb. She has no loyalty to you, doesn't care what you think , want or feel. Maybe its time for you to become a man and step up to the plate and be counted.

      Zakhele - 2011-03-14 16:04

      @The Patriot - Agreed! You couldn't have said it better Patriot. You see I know what will happen eventually. The ANC leadership will run teh ANC to the ground with the Malemas and Zuma. I will be there to pick it up on the cheap. I am a capitalist and an opportunist. Very soon ANC people will look for string men and women. I will be counted for standing up against the ANC corruption right from the inside. ANC is corrupt there is not doubt about that. But that doesn't mean I should explore joining DA because DA doesn't like it will get anywhere getting the majority National votes. If you can't beat them join them. Thanks.

      Great Humor glad that you are waiting to pick up the ANC cheap. Cause they are acting that way. Dont want to be flirting in any beds either but must say the soapy is getting old, the ANC ratings are dropping. Time for a new series or the only pieces left to pick up will be the rotting corpses of SA.

      Zakhele, I don't agree with you but at least you're honest. Go well! :)

      The Patriot - 2011-03-15 12:02

      @Zakhele, I see you and commend you on you objective thinking. Here’s a thought, unless you ARE in Government, you cannot change anything. Greed is an ugly animal. As you are loyal to your party, the only way you can make them sit up and listen is to vote against them. They really don’t have the passport to heaven. I have never voted for a government in power. The reason is that opposition is what keeps them honest. You can make it so by strengthening the opposition who will be strong enough to force the government to do their jobs, keep it clean and act like Civil Servants and not dictators. Your vote for them says you approve of what they are doing and you endorse their actions, or lack there of. The NATS had 68% of the white vote and could do as they pleased. Go to war where they wanted, jail who they wanted, inflict hardships where ever and oppress whoever. The ANC has 65% support. Not healthy for a democracy, and very close to dictatorship. Your posts indicate you’re a thinker, so I’ll leave this with you.

      @ Zakhele - keep your ANC card but vote DA. You can always go back to voting ANC if either the DA lets you down or the ANC improves.

    Please..this is old was promised to her when the coallition was formed....and now to guise it a a 'rigorous process" is an insult to doubt she will start off very dedicated...but any mayoral position is....the real question is whether the DA will have the balls to raise her all the way to the top of their hierarchy??I don't think they will....

      Trying to sound intelligent? FAIL!

      Patricia was offered the premiership of the Western Cape before the last national elections if she merged the ID with the DA. She turned down the position. Patricia is a no nonsense lady, if she wants the top job, trust me, she will get it.

  • daaivark - 2011-03-14 12:42

    I think this is a great choice. Makes one wonder why she has been sidelined so much until now.

      DW - 2011-03-14 13:39

      @daaivark - she was not sidelined, she was running the IDC. Now that they have decided to form a coalition with DA she can be utilised. The same as any intelligent, hardworking person with integrity can do - Trevor Manuel, are you listening?

  • Totman - 2011-03-14 13:05

    @ Mpho R. Cape Town does get run by coloured people, black people and white people. Yes, it is not "balance" to the population yet, but it is clearly "balanced" to the know-how. That is why it works. Coloured people gets more and more in on running it as well as black people. See, it is based on a party in power 1st. [like all other provinces.] The more other colours buying into the party and what works, the more representable it gets, but with the condition of know-how 1st. Join the party and vote for them and you will see you also will have a say. Vote for the losing party and lose that right. Do you just want to run Cape Town without winning. Earning it? Do you want this power because you are a certain colour and it is your right?[careful, I can be your] What about the rights of the people that won the province fairly? Why don't you than insist that all the other provinces do the same what you expect from Western Cape? Staying in most provinces on an on and off bases, I realized The Western Cape are doing better. Saying this, without supporting any of the parties that are in question/involved, says a lot!!!

    I respect both Helen Zille and Patricia de Lille - they both have a good head on their shoulders ! Go Girls Go !

      It'll happen. The word is, it will. PE Metro is likely to change hands. Viva DA, viva!

  • Sword&Cross - 2011-03-14 13:25

    The proposed ANC racist FORCED REMOVALS policy to take out people of mixed blood from the western cape dictates that de Lille will have to be made mayoress of Pofadder instead of Cape Town. Hey TREVOR MANUAL, what's your take on all your peers and colleagues, mantashe etc at the moment? Oh, of course, they're all angling to become mayoress as well neh!
