Former DA leader and Premier of the Western Cape Helen Zille has appologised for tweeting that NOT all aspects of the colonial system were bad. The party has said Zille will face a disciplinary process for her utterances.

What is Zille apologising for?

Until her party leader Mmusi Maimane calle Zille to order, she didn’t see anything wrong with what she said.

Here is what Helen Zille thinks was good about colonialism. She has NOT deleted the tweets 

What was Zille’s point? was it maybe lost in translation? Surely South Africa has a lot to learn from Singapore, a island city-state which has achieved staggering economic success in the past 50 years, but are the two comparable?


Do you know any benefits of colonialism?
