The African National staged a walk-out during Western Cape Premier Helen Zille's State of The Province Address on the 15th of February. According to the Democratic Alliance, it was an act of delinquency and a slap in the face of DA voters.
The DA's Helen Zille, Premier of the Western Cape, addressed the province on 15 February but was met with disapproval from the ANC and its supporters.
While Zille was delivering her State of The Province Address, ANC supporters were protesting outside the Western Cape legislature in Cape Town.
Then the ANC staged a walk-out during the final part of the address, which the DA sees as an act of delinquency, as reported on by Findallnews.
Mark Wiley, DA Chief Whip in the Western Cape, stated that the ANC's walk-out openly disregarded democratic processes.
The staged walk-out of Premier Helen Zille’s state of the province address by Western Cape ANC members today is an act of calculated political delinquency which flouted democratic processes and is a slap in the face to the majority of the voters in this province who have voted overwhelmingly in favour of a DA-led government for over a decade.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the walk-out was led by the ANC's acting provincial chairperson, Khaya Magaxa.
Since Zille started her address the ANC continuously jeered her and shouted commentary, interrupting the Premier's address.
The DA feels it was pure sabotage by the ruling party and a desperate attempt to remain relevant in the province.
