'The DA is worried' - De Lille

De Lille launches Eastern Cape campaign for GOOD party


Former Cape Town mayor Patricia De Lille said three DA MPs will be served with court summonses in the upcoming week, as she vows to drag them for allegedly defaming her.
De Lille, who recently formed a new party called GOOD, opened cases of crimen injuria against the three for allegedly faking a negative auditor general's report and posting it on social media.
De Lille was in Port Elizabeth on Saturday to launch her Eastern Cape campaign at the Malabar Community Hall.
De Lille told GOOD supporters that the DA continued to spread lies about her leading up to the May 8 election, adding that it was proof that the DA was worried.
"Those liars in the DA are playing a very dirty game. "They are trying to influence democracy by spreading lies about me. Like they have been doing for the past two years," De Lille said.
De Lille said she had reported the matter to the police and to the Independent Electoral Commission(IEC).
"If they don't stop spreading and false information, we are going to the high court to get an interdict.
"But this is such a waste of energy because if they were confident about themselves they wouldn't do this.
"This shows that they are desperate and they want to taint my name.
" As the GOOD movement we are taking supporters from both the DA and the ANC but they must respect people's right to vote for the political party of their choice," De Lille said.
She challenged the DA to bring proof of her alleged corruption before calling DA leader Mmusi Maimane a "jelly fish"
Unpacking the party's manifesto, De Lille along with the Eastern Cape premier candidate Celeste Domingo said their plan was based on fixing spatial, economic, social and environmental injustice.
She urged those in attendance to vote for the GOOD party and get out of the abusive relationship with the ruling party.
Domingo said: "The Eastern Cape has huge potential but there's a constraint and it's corruption and cadre deployment. " We see challenges in infrastructure. GOOD has a plan to fix SA and we have proof that we can do this."
