Mbali Ntuli exits DA, critiques party factionalism

In a sit-down interview with TimesLIVE analyst and contributor, Eusebius McKaiser, now former Democratic Alliance politician and leader Mbali Ntuli explained in detail her reasons for exiting both the party and the political stage. On Eusebius on TiimesLIVE, she painted a picture of a political culture that had taken root within the DA that is factionalist in nature, leading to the “weaponising” of party structures and processes, including disciplinary processes, for factional ends. While describing herself as being “emotional” about her shock announcement today, she intimated that plenty of thought and planning had gone into the decision.
