Johannesburg - The GOOD political party on Thursday welcomed the decision made by the National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) to not prosecute its leader Patricia De Lille.
This comes after the NDPP on Wednesday found that the allegations made against De Lille by her former party the Democratic Alliance were without substance. De Lille had called the allegations "blue lies".
"The NDPP decision exposes the DA as having concocted charges against De Lille, and as having abused the criminal justice system, for the political purposes of the laptop boys who spent nearly two years plotting against her," GOOD Secretary General, Brett Herron said.
He said the DA's "house of cards" has fallen and their lies have been exposed.
"It is shameful and embarrassing that the DA abused the people of Cape Town’s trust, and sold them blue lies, to justify their conduct against De Lille who was democratically elected as the Executive Mayor of this great city," Herron said
