Patricia de Lille hauls DA to court over an apology

The fight between Patricia de Lille and the Democratic Alliance (DA) is far from over.

De Lille is dragging the DA to the Western Cape High Court for an interdict as her former party is defying the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) deadline to publicly apologise to her.

The IEC found the DA to have violated the electoral code of conduct when it untruthfully told voters in a telemarketing election campaign that the party had fired De Lille because she was 'corrupt'.

Speaking to Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala show, De Lille says the DA didn't want her and she left the party.

It is them (DA) who continue to harass me.
