True, the problem with being a politician is that you can't afford to be honest and say what's on your mind, just look at Tito.
Or everyone on all sides who was kicked out of their parties for not toeing party line.

What's happening in the DA is an odd phenomenon, it is Zille who was going around dancing to Vulindlela, wooing mostly black and former ANC voters to vote for the party. It is Zille who pushed for the DA to have a black leader, even though the leader was inexperienced. It is Zille who was championing the fast tracking of young black leaders like Mazibuko.

It is Zille who through the above efforts oversaw the biggest DA growth. It is the same Zille who has come back from retirement to undo everything she herself created, somehow she is exempt from what is termed identity politics by the mostly right leaning supporters of the DA, it's all Mmusi's fault.

Politics is a funny game.

True, the interesting thing about it all is that she is now more of a God to the right-leaning DA voters than she was when she actually helped to grow the DA!. They idolize her more now.

I think you have summed it up perfectly. It is all about race and the left/right perception. Actual performance comparisons are irrelevant.

I don't know what actual performances would be relevant in the internal DA politics.

DA will have to clarify their position on BEE. They are not clear if redress must be done based on race or not.
Because they know as soon as they show their support for or against, they instantly lose a large group of the affected race.

That's why racist politics shouldn't be a thing alas we live in a country where the ANC have instilled some notion of black privilege where they expect and demand that they continue to get free shet, no matter the party.
