Helen Zille Allegedly Kept The Names of All The Black Leaders in The Democratic Alliance

The Democratic Alliance is under intense criticism because of the actions of Helen Zille. It is allegedly that she kept a list of all black people in the Democratic Alliance, and she published the list today. Herman Mashaba recently said that many people will leave the party once they realize that they are being used. The list was shared on Facebook on a page belonging to Helen Zille. A social media user who got surprised that she kept such a list wrote, “While there are admittedly many things disturbing about @helenzille's post, the most troubling of which must be the fact that she keeps a list of black leaders in the DA”. Some black people have left the Democratic Alliance over the past few years, including Herman Mashaba who was a former mayor of Johannesburg under the same party, the Democratic Alliance. Among the prominent black people who left the Democratic Alliance is also Mmusi Maimane.

Many social media users were offended that Helen Zille could take out time to compile a list of all the black people in the Democratic Alliance. They are asking what is her purpose of doing such a thing, describing it as racism personified. Even Herman Mashaba have expressed shock over the list which was released on Facebook. Herman Mashaba wrote, “Imagine writing out a list of all your “black leaders” to prove that your party doesn't have a problem with race…”. They argue that while she is trying to prove that her political party is not racist, she is indirectly displaying racism. The list has attracted criticisms for both the party and Helen Zille, although the former premier is not new to racism controversies. It should be noted that most of the people who are currently exiting the Democratic Alliance are black people. Some believe that something must be wrong somewhere, which is why black people are leaving the party constantly.
