DA Gauteng leader John Moodey has backed calls for the party to investigate DA federal chairperson Helen Zille’s controversial tweets that there are more racist laws now than during apartheid.
In her tweets on Sunday which caused a Twitter storm, Zille said: “There are more racist laws today than there were under apartheid. All racist laws are wrong. But permanent victimhood is too highly prized to recognise this.”
She also tweeted that the last apartheid president, FW de Klerk, “decided to dismantle apartheid. If he hadn’t, the ANC would still be bogged down in the mess of its so-called liberation camps and infighting. They had no viable armed struggle to speak of.”
