Premier of the Western Cape Helen Zille rubbished allegations that there was chaos at her foster grandson's matric ball after-party at Leeuwenhof, the official residence of the Premier.
A few neighbours apparently complained of the noise.
They claim that there was loud music until 4 am, and after they called the police, the youngsters threw bottles at the police - but Zille denies this.
At 2 o'clock in the morning, there was no more music.— Helen Zille, Premier of the Western Cape
My foster grandson goes to Rondebosch Boys High and they asked if they could have their after party here. I wrote to all the neighbours circulated 80 letters and received delightful responses. All the people that replied gave it a thumbs up.— Helen Zille, Premier of the Western Cape
There was no bottle throwing whatsoever. I spoke to the police who were on duty and they said the boys were very polite and no bottles were thrown.— Helen Zille, Premier of the Western Cape
Zille also denied allegations that she used state resources to throw this party.
Rondebosch Boys High paid for the entire thing through the money that the matrics have paid themselves to throw the matric ball.— Helen Zille, Premier of the Western Cape
