DA takes jab at Dlamini-Zuma for ‘finally finding the capital city of SA almost two years’ after being asked

DAThe spokesman for the National Provincial Council for Security and Justice, George Michalakis, stabbed Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma for “finally finding the capital of SA”.

< p>The Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs recently responded to a longstanding written parliamentary question that was posted in June 2020.

At the time she was asked in which municipality the capital of SA was to be found.


Inquiring into the question, Michalakis learned this week: “The capital of the Republic of SA is Pretoria and is within the municipality of the city of Tshwane.”

“Nkosazana Dlamini -Zuma finally found SA’s capital nearly two years after she had no idea and didn’t come back with an answer to a parliamentary inquiry from the prosecutor,” Michalakis claimed.

“Although, theoretically, SA has two others Capitals – Cape Town as the legislative capital and Bloemfo nstein [Mangaung] as judicial capital – one in three is good enough for this minister. It’s a passport in the education system under the ANC.”

A request for comment from the minister as to why it has taken two years to answer the question has been unsuccessful at the time of publication of this article. All updates will be incorporated as they are received.

Michalakis joked that he hopes Dlamini-Zuma’s study of the country’s geography over the past two years has opened her eyes to other communities “currently under ANC rule, as Tshwane was at the time of the question”.
