Twitter roasts DA leader Mmusi Maimane for his 'silence' on Helen Zille vs Phumzile van Damme
DA leader Mmusi Maimane's "silence" on Helen Zille "invalidating" Phumzile van Damme's alleged first-hand experience with racism at the V&A Waterfront last week has landed him in hot water, as tweeps continue to call him out for not taking a stand.
Some have acknowledged that Maimane may have said something behind closed doors, while others have called for a statement on the issue.
The spat between the two saw Van Damme drop files on how Zille allegedly faces no consequences from the party over her statements on social media.
She cited Zille's infamous colonialism tweets as an example.
And you do get away with a lot. You signed an agreement that you would stop with your colonialism tweets. Did you? Did you face any consequences? No. Instead it has emboldened you to not only attack Mmusi and others in the DA. Reflect on YOUR actions.— Phumzile Van Damme (@zilevandamme) June 23, 2019
Then fire rained down on Maimane.
