Zille says DA should not have approached protector over Bosasa donation to Ramaphosa
Former Western Cape premier chides party leader Mmusi Maimane and says party cannot be for and against public protector
Helen Zille, who led the DA to its biggest gains in support, piled the pressure on her successor Mmusi Maimane, criticising his decision to lodge a complaint against President Cyril Ramaphosa with a public protector that the party also says is not fit for office.
Maimane, who in May led the DA to its first loss of support in an election campaign, has come under fire for his complaint against Ramaphosa, which may have grave consequences for his presidency and hand power to ANC elements loyal to the scandal-hit former leader Jacob Zuma. At the same time the party has called Busisiwe Mkhwebane incompetent and called for her removal from office.
