Cape Town – Western Cape Premier Helen Zille tweeted that not all aspects of colonialism were bad. Even going as far as saying “for those claiming legacy of colonialism was only negative, think of our independent judiciary, transport infrastructure, piped water etc.”
The ANC and EFF called for her head and the DA has launched an internal probe although she apologised.
I apologise unreservedly for a tweet that may have come across as a defence of colonialism. It was not.— Helen Zille (@helenzille) March 16, 2017
