What Mmusi Maimane has to say at the Apartheid Museum on Tuesday will have “consequences for all Democratic Alliance (DA) structures and members across the country”.

A statement described as “important and personal” the speech the party leader will give “on race and identity in the DA and in South Africa”.


The party’s stance on race and racism has come under fire since one of its members‚ South Coast estate agent Penny Sparrow‚ caused a storm on social media after she compared black people on beaches over the festive season to monkeys.

Maimane was vocal on taking disciplinary and possible legal action against Sparrow‚ who has since resigned her party membership.
