DA federal chairperson Helen Zille says that a war based on race in South Africa would only destroy the country and leave us with nothing.
During an interview with Jacaranda FM, Zille spoke about the murder of the 21-year-old farm manager Brendin Horner in Senekal, Free State. Zille spoke about how South Africans mostly want to work with each other instead of going to war against each other.
“I think most South Africans, in their hearts, know that if we turn this country into a racial war, there will be nothing left for anybody to inherit," she said.
Zille also went on to say that the killing of farmers will do no good for South Africa's food security, while at the same time slamming the EFF's demand for the land that was "stolen" to be returned. She said that by killing farmers there would be no food for anybody.
Helen Zille said that she did not understand what land the EFF was saying they are protecting because she does not know of anyone who has stolen land.
She said: "Most people are still paying off bank loans for their land. The government has lots of land.”
She also made an appearance during the protests in Senekal and was slammed for wearing a T-shirt with the words "I am an African" written in bold.
