Whoever takes over from James Selfe is a poor choice, says Eusebius

Eusebius McKaiser says the race for the Democratic Alliance (DA) federal council chairperson is too close to call.

He says none of the candidates has the guts to say that the point of redress is to restore the dignity of black people.

Helen Zille, Athol Trollip, Mike Waters and Thomas Walters are gunning for the top position.

The party will elect the party’s new federal council chairperson this weekend.

The sad thing for the DA is whoever takes over from James Selfe is a poor choice and less than an ideal perfect choice.

None of the candidates up to replace James Selfe get identity politics, get racialism and understand historicism.

Whether you choose Helen Zille, Athol Trollip or heaven forbid Mike Waters you will get the candidate that does not get the pulse of the nation right now.
