The DA has not been consistent ito policy, which also earned them the nickname DA Lite, trying to pamper and attract voters.There has been a steady move to the far left and far right (in SA context) in the past few years.
Then DA decided they want to shed more voters by failing to deal with internal politics, allowing their wranglings to spill over to the public domain.
Some black people did support apartheid just like there were white people who supported the struggle.For a white person to support the EFF is like for a black person to support apartheid. It is self defeating.
But I think they are doing it for the attention/trolling. If you are white and you go into a normally "black" space(taxi rank/shop, restaurant, bar, shabeen) that's not used to seeing a lot of white people, everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming. You get a lot of attention, maybe they like that.
Most homeland leaders were happy with, some like Gatsha even enjoyed the elevated kingship like status he was given, that's why he felt like he had so much to lose with the introduction of democracy.To some extend, IFP supported apartheid, together with a bunch of others

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahlabatini_Declaration_of_FaithThe situation of South Africa in the world scene as well as internal community relations requires in our view an acceptance of certain fundamental concept for the economic social and constitutional development of our country.
We respectfully record five principles on the basis of which we believe all our people can co-operate.
1. Change in South Africa must be brought about by peaceful means.
2. Opportunity must be afforded to all our people for material and educational advancement. The economy must be available to serve the needs of all able and willing to contribute, and the wealth, labour and expertise of our country should be harnessed to provide job and entrepreneurial opportunity for all groups.
3. Constitutions, blue prints and plans for the future should not be made by only some of the people for all others, they must be made with people. Consultation and dialogue lead to government by consent and with this in mind and as a first step a consultative council representative of all groups in South Africa should be constituted at the earliest opportunity.
4. The federal concept appears to provide the best framework on which to seek a constitutional solution for a South Africa free from domination by any group over others and ensuring the security of all its people.
5. Any constitutional proposals for South Africans must:
(i) Safeguard the identity and culture of the various groups constituting the people of South Africa.
(ii) Include a bill of rights to safeguard the fundamental concepts of natural justice.
On the basis of these principles we declare our faith in a South Africa of equal opportunity, happiness, security and people for all its people.
why not let it be run by the rate payers association?If you are going to have a collectivist thing like a municipality, you need a elected person like a counselor to represent the people who can then appoint specialist as needed.
Any collection of people require some committee/politician/political party.
I've yet to meet a black person who supported Apartheid, but I suppose that some of the puppets who the NP appointed to govern areas would have preferred it to losing their power after 94.Some black people did support apartheid just like there were white people who supported the struggle.
You will always get contrarians. Its not trolling, its just bucking the trend.
Remember that there were police informants and black people working at vlakplaas.I've yet to meet a black person who supported Apartheid, but I suppose that some of the puppets who the NP appointed to govern areas would have preferred it to losing their power after 94.
Generally, a lot of older white academics were involved in the struggle. A few of my lecturers at University were.

Stompie Sepei was also killed because they believed he was an informant. It would have been a massive problem for them, people of all colours end up being rats.
JS was being hypocritical here because he was doing the same and should take collective responsibility for this as did Trollip.DURBAN – Democratic Alliance (DA) interim leader John Steenhuisen said that his party under former leader Mmusi Maimane focused too much on bashing the African National Congress (ANC).
He said if he was elected as party leader in May, this would change to be more solution-oriented.

What were their roles within the party, and what could they have done different within those roles?JS was being hypocritical here because he was doing the same and should take collective responsibility for this as did Trollip.
I do however have a feeling that the party will start taking collective responsibility next year when they don't grow in the LGE. That looks like it will happen because the VF+ and their supporters don't seem to take JS seriously and probably won't be brought back.
