'I'm going to deal with them one at a time' - De Lille on DA and defamation suit
Outgoing Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille says she will handle legal action against her detractors within the DA 'one at a time'.
De Lille is bringing charges of defamation against Johannesburg businessman, Anthony Faul, who accused her of corruption earlier this year.
In February‚ the DA apparently approached the police with an affidavit it had received from Faul.
However, the NPA has dropped the case and decided not to pursue the bribery allegations against De Lille, vindicating her in the matter.
She says the allegations made by Faul were patently false and a vicious attack on her name and reputation.
De Lille plans to sue those she believes are behind a plot to defame her. She says she will unveil cases against other DA members in due course.
She reveals that she has invested more than R500 000 of her own money into three legal cases that she has won so far.
