De Lille’s court hearing postponed ‘because judges need more time to prepare’

CAPE TOWN- Temporarily reinstated City of Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille will spend more time in her office after her court battle meant to be heard on Friday was postponed for almost two weeks.

De Lille announced on her Twitter account, “My court case which was scheduled for this Friday, May 25 has been postponed to the 4 and 5 June because the judges need more time to prepare.”

De Lille has returned to office with immediate effect last Tuesday after the Western Cape High Court temporarily reinstated her, both as a member of the Democratic Alliance and the Cape Town City Council, pending a full review of her removal.

The DA, said her return will not mean all will return to normal, and that would it will only be “ceremonial”, with the party’s caucus to make the key decisions in the city.

Deputy Mayor Ian Nielson even suggested De Lille could “drink tea and drive around in CA1 [the official vehicle]”, as everyone waits for the full court review on Friday.

De Lille has hit back and has started sharing her diary with her social media followers every day, which have provided insights on the meetings and events she attending.
