Patricia de Lille is the DA's mayoral candidate for Cape Town, party leader Helen Zille said on Monday.

“There were four candidates. They were put through a gruelling process.

Only one person could emerge from it. And that is Patricia de Lille,” Zille told reporters in Cape Town.

She said she was confident De Lille would “with her inner strength and determination, give it her all”. - Sapa
