It was an honour for me to pay tribute to Mama Winnie and recall the many memories I have of a brave fighter for our freedom, equality and democracy. I will always remember Mama Winnie as one of the key leaders in our liberation struggle. pic.twitter.com/MzAfAGnoQt

Patricia Kopane (the DA leader in the Free State) also attended the EFF event, and spoke. Is she in trouble too? pic.twitter.com/ygRjDQ7Xhd

Did the DA organise a memorial service for the Mother of the Nation that Patricia de Lille could attend? Are DA members supposed to get consent or a dompas to attend funerals and memorials? https://t.co/ggIOqyLVs4

Come May, the Western Cape High Court will present its ruling on De Lille’s application to set aside the report on her compiled by DA chief whip John Steenhuisen. This is just one of the challenges De Lille has encountered in clearing her name; two other disciplinary processes have been lined up against De Lille.
This includes what the DA claims is nepotism, and the second is for not advertising a job for an area-based director properly. De Lille may face another motion of no confidence come Monday, as the DA caucus is gearing up to discuss the way forward regarding the Mayor. At the DA congress hosted last weekend, the party adopted a recall clause which may spell the end for De Lille.
