South Africa's main opposition Democratic Alliance has suspended Helen Zille, a former DA leader and now premier of Western Cape province, for a tweet about colonialism, the party said on Saturday. Maimane has distanced himself from the tweets saying he in no way agrees that colonialism could be viewed as having positive effects in South Africa.

She also claims that there is a contradiction between the letter given to her from party Chairman James Selfe and the press statement made by President Maimane. "And they will have to ensure a three-line whip and DA members will have to vote her out", Fakir said.

"Our federal executive has resolved that Ms Zille be suspended from all party activities until such time that the disciplinary hearing is concluded". "A notice of suspension will be served on Zille in this regard". The Western Cape is a DA stronghold and the only province not governed by the African National Congress. This will emerge over time, she wrote in a statement posted on Twitter.

"In his letter, Selfe has given me until June 6 to provide reasons why I should not be suspended until the outcome of the disciplinary committee".

Majority of parties that form the opposition alliance, including the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), have been calling for Zille's removal from the party, terming her remarks as "cold-hearted racism". "I have apologised. What I have not agreed to do is to plead guilty to charges of misconduct which I have never committed", she said.


"Zille's social media commentary and public utterances in connection with colonialism undermine our reconciliation project". "There is no question that Zille's original tweets and subsequent justifications have damaged our standing in the public mind".

"I can not be bullied into resigning or incriminating myself".

The party has broadened its appeal and made big gains in local elections past year, but the ruling African National Congress still dismisses it as primarily representative of South Africa's white minority.

On Saturday, Maimane told the media the party's federal executive council had made a decision to suspend Zille's membership of the opposition party.
