Former Cape Town mayor Patricia De Lille says she does not regret a radio interview in which she said she intended to walk away from the Democratic Alliance (DA) after clearing her name in court.

On Tuesday, the party revoked De Lille’s membership citing a clause in its constitution which states that if a member declares their resignation from the party publicly, the person’s membership is automatically ceased.

De Lille will challenge the decision at the High Court this Friday and says the fight between her and the DA was never about the termination of her membership.

“The fight with the DA was always removing me as the mayor. It was never about termination of membership. In fact, in that same week when I’m alleged to have said all the things that is now interpreted the DA way, the DA offered me again a seat in Parliament.”

“So it was never about a termination of membership. I’m happy that the court will make a ruling and then this matter can be settled there,” explains the former Mayor.
