According to IOL, DA leader Helen Zille was booed and confronted with chants of “Cape Times! Cape Times!” by concert-goers at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival where she appeared on stage with DJ Suga. Zille and the DA were heavily criticised after it emerged that the party had chosen not to renew any of its subscriptions with the Cape Times newspaper, which Zille accused of “shoddy journalism”.
But Zille has claimed that she was unaware of the booing, saying: “I truly didn’t hear any of that. I just felt fun and warm vibes. And I certainly only saw friendly faces.”
