Zille could sue unionist

THE brief truce between Helen Zille and Cosatu Western Cape secretary Tony Ehrenreich is over.

The Western Cape premier is threatening to sue Ehrenreich for defamation over his allegation that she went on a "jaunt" to Germany this year to visit her family.

Zille says his claim that she "snuck out" of the country on a "jaunt" to Germany gave the impression that she had abused government resources for the trip.
