DA has mis­han­dled Pa­tri­cia is­sue

The DA must with­draw (from the high court case) and fo­cus on get­ting its cam­paign­ing on track. Fail­ure to do this will re­sult in a lost vote. The DA must not un­der­es­ti­mate the coloured voter. They have al­ready iden­ti­fied Natasha Maz­zone as the fly in the oint­ment.

The Pa­tri­cia de Lille judg­ment ex­on­er­ated her. This is the woman who has been open, say­ing let the al­le­ga­tions lev­elled against her be tested in the open. But, the DA wanted closed doors. Why? I think they wanted to cook the find­ings of the dis­ci­plinary pro­ce­dure and go out pub­licly to as­sas­si­nate her char­ac­ter. Maz­zone’s re­sponse to the judg­ment shows the DA has lit­tle re­gard for the ju­di­ciary. That’s dan­ger­ous to our democ­racy.

The DA should with­draw. It has cast doubt over how I will vote next year. Their be­hav­iour is shock­ing.
