Professor Somadoda Fikeni says it's amazing how the DA has kept contradicting itself on the De Lille matter.

Political analyst Professor Somadoda Fikeni says Patricia de Lille is not a political Mother Theresa; she is a warrior and the DA must be careful.

Professor Fikeni says the Democratic Alliance has always used the City of Cape Town as a model city but has managed to destroy that in its quest to bring Mayor Patricia de Lille down.

The DA has rescinded the membership of De Lille, citing that she has publicly stated that she will leave the party on CapeTalk and 702's Eusebius McKaiser show in April.

She may write books, she may even draw on some of the things which were happening around the low-cost housing and spatial planning.
