De Lille: The DA has used & abused me
Announcing her new political party to be officially launched in two months’ time, Patricia de Lille again took swipes at her former political home.
She believes she still has the political pull to make her a serious contender in next year's general elections.
The public mudslinging between De Lille and the DA, that culminated in their bitter divorce on the steps of the Western Cape High Court last month, looks set to continue.
Announcing her new political party to be officially launched in two months’ time, De Lille again took swipes at her former political home.
“The DA has used me and they’ve abused me and the abuser cannot be rehabilitated. I’ve come to that conclusion."
The DA's Solly Malatsi says the party is not shaken by the formation of De Lille's new party.
De Lille has vowed to use her experience to continue serving the city and the country, saying that she still has a lot of energy and is not ready to retreat into retirement just yet.
