The Democratic Alliance(DA) has yet again come under fire after another party member allegedly lied about their qualifications. It is alleged that the current Mayco Member for Water and Waste at the City of Cape Town, Xanthea Limberg allegedly lied about her qualifications as stated on the CV she submitted to the party’s Provincial Executive Committee in January for her nomination as an executive member.
As reported by the Weekend Argus, Limberg’s CV states that she has obtained a degree in Politics and Public Policy Administration from the University of Cape Town(UCT) and a BA Degree in Policy Studies from Unisa, however, she only has certificates from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and UCT. According to Limberg she allegedly did a degree at UCT in Politics and Public Administration but didn’t complete it due to her current work schedule that doesn’t allow her to. She becomes the fourth DA member to allegedly lie about their educational background after the party’s Chief Whip, Natasha Mazzone, former DA Western Cape leader Bonginkosi Madikizela and Saldhana Bay Mayor, Marius Koen have been accused of allegedly lying about their qualifications on their CV’s. The DA has yet to respond to these allegations made against another party member.
Meanwhile, Madikizela has resigned from the provincial cabinet, indicating that it was the right thing to do under the circumstances, EWN reported. Community Safety MEC Albert Fritz will remain the acting leader until the party elects Madikizela’s replacement on May 29.
This is a developing story.
