'Let's work together' ― De Lille on DA declaring her return 'ceremonial'
Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille, who was on Tuesday temporarily restored to her position, says she will appeal to the Democratic Alliance (DA) to work together with her in the meantime after the party indicated that her return would be ceremonial.
The DA released a statement immediately after stating that the court’s decision was not in the best interests of the people of Cape Town, and that governance decisions would in any case be made by the DA caucus in the interim.
Responding to the DA’s statement, De Lille said she simply wanted to work together with the party for the next 10 days for the sake of the City.
“Yes I am aware. I am still making the appeal that for the sake of the people of Cape Town, let us work together,” she told News24 on Tuesday.
“Let us rise above these differences that we have, just for the sake of the people of the City of Cape Town. We must put the City first.” ― News24
