De Lille lays fraud charges against DA
CAPE TOWN - Former Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille has laid charges against senior members of the Democratic Alliance for “defaming and forged” posts on social media. The former DA member has laid fraud charges against DA members who she says distributed forged statements to discredit her. De Lille said the posts were distributed on social media suggesting that they were from the auditor general of South Africa.
She said her unemployed status allowed her to reflect and attend to important matters “such this one” of “false” allegations by the DA.
“I am taking this action because of the serious nature of the fraud as well as the total disregard and disrespect shown to the office of the Auditor General by public representatives.”
“I am also doing this because I value the rights and protection that our Constitution should afford our society and citizens, because I love my country and because I want to ensure that all citizens are treated equally and protected by the laws that we fought so hard for.”
