Rumours that Leader of the DA and Mayor of Cape Town Helen Zille, voted the Best Mayor in the World, will be making a guest appearance at the Cape Town Jazz Festival, have rival party ANC up in arms over “political opportunism” and “unfair political campaigning”. Apparently, Zille will be performing a song or two with late entrants to the festival, The Soweto String Quartet. She will also be MC’ing their performance.
Zille played in a school band at St Mary’s, and considered “going pro” before choosing journalism instead. There is no mention of what instrument she will be playing at this point, and the aptly named DA’s spokesperson for Arts and Culture, Louise Band, has declined to confirm or deny the rumours.
The equally aptly named ANC spokesperson, Daniel Marimbana, has responded “We have many cadres in the movement who can not only play a variety of instruments, but have a much better sense of rhythm.” – which has been well evidenced with ANC party-president Jacob Zuma at numerous party-rallies.
