Western Cape MEC for Economic Opportunities, Alan Winde has responded to allegations of racism within the DA made by former Cape Town Council Chief Whip, Shaun August.
In any organisation where you have an issue where someone wants to breakaway...this kind of thing happens. It's unfortunate that we're not focussing on the facts of the actual report.— Alan Winde, Western Cape MEC for Economic Opportunities
Shaun is definitely one of Patricia's lieutenants.— Alan Winde, Western Cape MEC for Economic Opportunities
August was one of five DA members who resigned in solidarity with embattled Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille on Thursday.
Their resignations came just hours ahead of the release a report by law firm Bowman Gilfillan into malfeasance at the council.
There's a whole lot of noise around the issue, trying to deflect from the issue, but let's have a look at what the report says.— Alan Winde, Western Cape MEC for Economic Opportunities
