The Western Cape legislature speaker has approved the ANC’s request for a snap debate on Premier Helen Zille’s views on colonialism.

The debate will be held next week Tuesday March 28 at 14:15 and will take precedence over the usual programme for the provincial legislature, in Wale Street, provincial government spokesperson Matthys Odendal said on Wednesday.

“The Speaker deemed this request to be of sufficient public importance to warrant a debate over and above the normal parliamentary programme,” he said.

ANC acting provincial chairperson and leader of the opposition in the legislature, Khaya Magaxa, wrote to Speaker Sharna Fernandez to ask for the urgent debate after Zille tweeted last week that not all aspects of colonialism were bad.
