Van Damme: De Lille has until Monday to respond to maladministration claims

DA spokesperson Phumzile Van Damme about the suspension of Patricia de Lille from party activities.

This follows an investigation by a DA sub-committee set up by the central executive, to look into allegations of maladministration in the city and tensions within its city caucus.

The subcommittee completed its work and tabled its report to the central executive.

On the basis of that report, the central executive said they were serious enough to warrant a suspension of Mayor De Lille pending further investigations.

Van Damme insists that De Lille has received the report and has been given until Monday to respond.

Meanwhile, the party has not given further information detailing just what the allegations of maladministration involve.

Unfortunately, I am not at liberty to discuss that report until the mayor has been given the opportunity to respond. She has been given until Monday to do so.

Phumzile Van Damme, DA spokesperson

She says this is in the interests of 'fairness and natural justice', and insists the public has been informed from the beginning of the process 'with a series of statements updating the public on what's happened'.

Eusebius McKaiser challenged this, arguing that the DA should distinguish itself from the ANC by being willing to exhibit full transparency, and says the DA statement 'is as clear as mud.'

Van Damme says once De Lille responds on Monday the process will be taken further.
