A letter is doing the rounds purportedly showing a letter addressed to the Gupta’s and signed by then DA leader Helen Zille.
In the letter, dated 25 May 2009, Hellen Zille thanks a certainMr Gupat for the ‘generous donation’ and goes on to explain in detail how the donation had helped the DA in getting more votes compared to the 2004 elections.
Part of the letter reads : ‘Your financial contribution helped us to achieve our three key objectives in the recent elections’ then goes on to list the three objectives which were :
- Keeping the ANC below a two thirds majority
- Significantly consolidating our (DA) position as the official opposition and
- Winning an outright majority in the Western Cape
It is not known at time of publish if the letter was original or how it found it’s way onto the public domain.
