DA won't discipline De Lille for attending EFF memorial for Winnie

DA Demands De Lille Explain Her Attendance At EFF Event

De Lille's party, the Democratic Alliance, has since said it would be asking her for reasons why she attended, saying she had not informed the party beforehand, as was protocol.

The party responded to the EFF's invitation by sending its Free State provincial leader Patricia Kopane to represent the DA. "Patricia worked with Mama Winnie and it's within her right to pay tribute in an appropriate platform‚" he added.

DA chairperson of the federal council‚ James Selfe‚ had earlier said de Lille would have to explain herself but the EFF's Floyd Shivambu accused the party of targeting De Lille.

Nt'sekhe says the DA did seek an explanation as to why De Lille did not inform the party prior to the EFF memorial.

Lascelles quite happy at Newcastle, says Benitez
The Magpies haven't won a home league game against Arsenal since December 2005, drawing four and losing five since. All things considered, though, there may be an opportunity for the hosts to cause an upset.

During the memorial service in Brandfort in the Free State province on Wednesday, De Lille recalled the last time Madikizela-Mandela called her in December previous year.

She is now serving as a mayor thanks to opposition parties and rebel DA councillors who defied their party's motion of no confidence in her to keep her in power.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has condemned some members of the ANC, and the party, for trivialising the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

"We would have had no problem at all in [her] attending the rally to express condolences with the Madikizela family". "Speak to her directly. I mean, I've been to the memorial service of Pam Golding the other day", she said.

De Lille, who was one of the keynote guests at the memorial service, also spoke about the role Madikizela-Mandela played in the fight for free ARV treatment for the poor who were infected with HIV.

"The DA has, along with the nation, been mourning the death of Mrs Madikizela-Mandela and refuses to be drawn into mud-slinging in her name.it is simply inappropriate".

"She said... "those boys don't know who they dealing with". "And I said: "Mama Winnie‚ I have got it under control but thank you for your support"‚" said De Lille.
