"I had botox treatment for the first time in 2005. A friend told me that she had it done, and I was a bit surprised because I thought she was being superficial.

"I thought about it a bit, looked at my own frown lines, and decided to give it a try... the results seemed worth it," Zille said in an interview with the Sunday Times.

She said that she never used to care about her appearance until she was advised that this was short-sighted.
