Caller: 'De Lille and Zille have reached their sell buy dates'

The Democratic Alliance (DA)'s federal executive on Wednesday agreed to the request made by the party's Cape Town caucus to table an internal motion of no confidence against De Lille as per the party's new rules.

Callers on The Eusebius McKaiser Show weighed in on the matter. Manuel, from Durbanville said the DA's problems started when they got a huge majority in Cape Town.

READ: LISTEN: Patricia De Lille - 'I'm the guinea pig'

Before that they were working well and getting everything done, then it went to their heads. And i think in particularly it went to her head, well it appears that way, one cant be sure. Just like the ANC who thinks that they are really going to have a rough ride next year, now they are working like hell. That is why we must never have our political parties having more than 52, 53, 54% of the votes because that is when they work.

Manual, caller

Another caller, Ernie said people must take her affiliation out of the equation.

Patricia is a member of party A, her heart is no longer in party A, she is no longer interested in being a member of party A and they have had disagreements. She is hell bent, she is on a mission to destroy the party she is involved with, she is going out of her way to entice and to create a lot of drama. And I think something we have forgotten about, is that six months ago, both the ANC and EFF accused her of corruption.

Ernie, caller

Now she is sort of currying favour with a lot of other things. If she really had her voters at her best interest, then she would make sure and would say you know what, 'I am innocent', as she also made a point of ensuring that people recuse themselves from her hearing. She is creating a lot of noise and I think, with Patricia and like Helen Zille, they have reached their sell by dates.
