Helen Zille, outgoing Premier of the Western Cape, addressed the crowd in Bellville on a musical note despite knowing her time is almost up. She sang along to Brenda Fassie's 'Vulindlela' as well as Andrea Bocelli's "Time to say goodbye".
Helen Zille got onto the stage dancing and singing before she addressed the Bellville crowd. She was there to launch the DA's manifesto for the Western Cape province.
She first sang loudly along to Brenda Fassie's 'Vulindlela' and then, less confidently, she sang Andrea Bocelli's "Time to say goodbye".
Zille then told the crowd before her that they will live in her heart forever, as reported on by News24.
It looked like Zille's address was also a way to say goodbye in a way, as she won't be around as premier for much longer.
During her speech, she shared statistics with the listeners that was meant to show how the Western Cape is the best-run province in the country.
Zille ended her speech with the words 'My time is done'.
Briefly.co.za learned that Zille feels positive about the DA's success and that it means success for SA as well.
She added that she hopes the Western Cape remains within the hold of the DA.
It would be very, very bad for South Africa if every single province were in the hands of one corrupt party.
And as much as people may like Cyril Ramaphosa, as we've seen, he's hemmed about by people who are very, very tight on power, and who have very questionable histories. And no matter how much a person might cry, you can't turn around a party like the ANC.
