Former Western Cape police commissioner Lennit Max has joined the ANC after he resigned from the DA with immediate effect, News24 reported.
In a statement issued on Sunday, Max slammed the Democratic Alliance (DA), calling the party 'self-serving' and claiming they had political agendas and personal egos to maintain.
"I have decided that enough is enough and I can no longer be associated with a political party such as the DA, which regards political agendas, personal egos and self-interest as more important than the lives of our people," part of the statement read.
Briefly.co.za learned the statement continued by adding the DA only saw the people of the Western Cape as voters who do not deserve a safe environment to live in.
Max revealed he had decided to join the ANC, which he believed to be the only party to turn things around in South Africa.
Max, who acts as Bheki Cele's special advisor, said it was evident that Ramaphosa and his leadership aimed to create a better South Africa for all citizens.
He then called on all 'men and women' to assist the ANC in their quest to better South Africa.
Max added Ramaphosa already knows the direction he and his leadership would take the country following next year's elections.
