Who is Patricia De Lille representing? Will her resignation and newly launched Political Party boost the South African movement towards democracy?
Patricia de Lille qualifications to lead are well spelt out in her experience and belief that is is time for a new political order in South Africa. Being a Former Cape Town mayor and DA member Patricia de Lille has great experience to serve her country under a new political movement.
She just launched a new political party and announced this after findings of a damning internal report were aside. I am not sure how the new political party that will contest the 2019 elections and if she will be the main person on the ballot. I ask this question because of the recent uprising of youth movements across Africa.
However, how much representation of the new age movement will Patricia De Lille, who is 67 years old, manage to capture? She has indeed spent her entire life fighting for a society that is just, fair and caring. This would have been a great time to mentor younger leaders. That way, her legacy can outlive her.
