SA opposition 'is not too white' **
The party has long been criticised for being too white and middle class

The newly elected leader of the main opposition Democratic Alliance in South Africa, Helen Zille, has denied her party is too white and middle class.

Ms Zille, the mayor of Cape Town, told the BBC at least half of the delegates voting in the leadership election on Sunday were not white people.

She said the accusation that the DA was a white party was propaganda used by the ruling African National Congress.

The biggest challenge facing the party is to attract more black support.

I don't know, but with a woman as a spokesperson, they sure seem more diverse than this bunch.

**and the minute you have to defend youself as "not too white", you're too white.
