Cape Town - Two months before national elections, the DA has been rocked by another resignation in the City of Cape Town.
Former councillor, Lindela Tshwete, resigned this week, citing racism, lack of policy and unfair distribution of resources by the DA-led council.
“It was not an easy decision to make. But I could no longer remain part of a party that is not transformed and is not pushing a transformation agenda.
“At this stage, the party is pandering to white fears and not taking a clear policy or position on crucial issues,” he said.
Instead, he claimed at council level, the DA was driving a wedge between coloured and black party members “where coloureds were made to feel and think that they were superior to their fellow blacks”.
