JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance's (DA) Federal Executive says it has decided to terminate
Dianne Kohler Barnard' s membership after the party's Federal Legal Commission found her guilty of misconduct.
A statement released by the DA confirmed that the party's Federal Executive met to discuss the findings of the federal legal commission on Kohler Barnard.
This was to decide what punishment she should face after she shared a Facebook post which said health, education and the police service were better during apartheid.
