- Helen Zille is once again in the spotlight - and it's not good
- The politician sent a tweet throwing shade at the ruling party just days after Mmusi's resignation
- Social media users were not impressed with the controversial woman's statements
Helen Zille has once again caused controversy on social media after throwing shade at the ANC. This comes shortly after Mmusi Maimane's resignation and Mzansi social media users had plenty to say about her comments.
Zille was agreeing to a tweet by Twitter user Errolbsk, which said that at least DA members resigned as opposed to ANC members who never leave their posts. Zille agreed with the sentiments by responding:
"Tweet of the week"
Her tweet was met with mixed responses from social media users. Twitter user ChristoThurston said:
"What? Men of integrity resign from your party and you call this a tweet of the week? Ms Zille, will you go down in history as the one who built your party to be the strongest opposition or the one who destroyed it due to a hunger for power?"
"Well at least in the ANC leaders don’t come back once their term expires! They don’t regard themselves as the only ones capable of leading the party! They don’t return to preserve white racial interests! When their term ends they go forever UNLIKE YOU!"
"Well not so fast... You madam are the Jaws of Life in the DA just in case you are not aware. Now that's a tweet of the month."
While Thabelo_Ngwenya said:
"The happenings in the DA are a blessing in disguise. It is a necessary step in the forward direction for our country. The DA will be relegated to a party of white interests. No more pretending and South Africans of all race will form a truly non-racial party"
Amid a flood of speculation, Mmusi Maimane resigned from his position at the helm of the Democratic Alliance. Briefly.co.za reported that Maimane, despite a massive fightback from the Federal Executive, opted to turn his back on the opposition party.
This move had closely followed Herman Mashaba's resignation in response to Helen Zille's rise to a powerful position in the DA.
