The past few days has certainly been interesting in terms of changes to the South African political landscape.

Not only has senior leader, Herman Mashaba, announced that he can no longer remain a member of the Democratic Alliance (DA), now its federal leader Mmusi Maimane has resigned.

The pressure brought on by Ryan Coetzee, Tony Leon and Michiel le Roux’s scathing report deprives the DA’s branches of an opinion on the matter. The tail seems to be wagging the dog.

It seems as if the DA is showing its true colours; the project to transform the DA has taken a serious knock and I dare say, could now come to a grinding halt.
