[WATCH] 'We always believed the allegations leveled against Patricia de Lille'

Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane says the party has always believed that Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille was guilty of allegations against her.

Speaking to Eusebius McKaiser, Maimane says the party believes that this and other allegations against De Lille are a matter of fact.

When you are dealing with a governance failure, you are dealing with an audit process.

When it comes to Patricia de Lille, what we can't do, and I think Patricia de Lille herself will stand up on such issues to say, we mustn't go into it and say; we must build racial solidarity or gender solidarity. We must investigate these matters, we must get to the bottom of them.

Mmusi Maimane, DA leader

You don't open allegations on anybody just on allegations of rumours. When I got transcripts of that SMS, to me, that is sufficient interference, unless I must then sit there and say 'no someone said she did this and I must go on rumours.' It's not true.

Mmusi Maimane, DA leader

We as a party accepted the fact these allegations are material enough for us to act.
