Cape Town mayor and leader of the opposition Democratic Alliance was arrested Sunday while taking part in an anti-drug demonstration, party officials said. Helen Zille said she and about 15 other people had been arrested while taking part in a march in Cape Town's notorious gangland known as the Cape Flats. "The last time I witnessed people treated in this way was during anti-apartheid protests," Zille said in a statement. Western Cape police spokesman Captain Elliot Sinyangana confirmed the arrest of Zille and eight others, saying they had been "illegally gathering" in front of the Mitchell's Plain police station.
