DA dismisses plans to oust Maimane
The DA said the M&G report was mere rumours geared at spreading chaos before the 2014 elections.
JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance (DA) insisted that a closed caucus meeting on Tuesday would not result in the ousting of its national spokesperson Mmusi Maimane.
This followed a report in the Mail & Guardian on Friday, which stated DA leaders were planning to put forward a vote of no-confidence in Maimane.
The move allegedly came amid accusations of incompetence and maladministration in Gauteng under Maimane's leadership.
But DA Gauteng leader John Moodey said the reports were simply untrue.
He dismissing them as mere rumours geared at spreading chaos before the 2014 general elections.
"There will be no such no-confidence vote against Mmusi."
DA Parliamentary Leader Lindiwe Mazibuko expressed her thoughts on the rumours via social network Twitter by saying, "Don't touch me on Maimane! #TeamMmusi (sic)."
