[LISTEN] Zille responds to Lindiwe Mazibuko comments that she undermined her
Western Cape Premier, Helen Zille, told Kieno Kammies that anyone who knows the truth, knows that she did whatever she could to help former DA Parliamentary leader, Lindiwe Mazibuko,
In an address this week at the Marie Claire Power Summit to honour Nelson Mandela, Mazibuko is reported to have said that Zille often failed at nurturing new leadership, adding that Maimane is suffering the same fate.
Everybody from the inside knows the truth. Almost all the people will know how much effort I put into succession. I have nurtured many young leaders over many years and ensured that people move up the ladder. I moved out the way to ensure that will happen.Helen Zille, WC Premier
I absolutely supported her at every level.Helen Zille, WC Premier
Zille said it was a "fact of politics" that your "own opponent sits in your own team"
When Lindiwe wanted to stand as leader of the caucus after only two years in the caucus, I said it was a bit early. When she did stand, I supported her all the way... I did whatever I could to help.Helen Zille, WC Premier
