IN another potential scandal to strike the DA, a private Twitter conversation between the party’s youth leader, Mbali Ntuli, and a friend regarding Lindiwe Mazibuko’s sudden departure has allegedly been hacked.
In a snapshot of the window, Ntuli dismissed allegations that Mazibuko was fired but premised it by saying: “I’m surprised Lindi lasted as long as she did. They have been awful to us. Anyways I am happy for her.”
The message came as Mazibuko announced that she was leaving to study at Harvard University in the US.
Approached for comment, Ntuli said it was very concerning that other political parties “are [potentially] doing that [hacking]. It’s putting us in a serious position.”
Ntuli said it was not her account which had been hacked, but that of her friend.
Last year, the DA parliamentary caucus voted in favour of the controversial Employment Equity Bill, which resulted in Zille saying members had erred. – Denise Williams
