- Makhosi Khoza has confirmed her resignation from Outa
- She said she would be still be active in South African affairs, but in a different capacity
- Khoza also endorsed her daughter's run for Parliament
Makhosi Khoza, a former ANC MP, has stepped down from Outa, the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse.
Khoza previously left the ANC in 2017 to form her own party, called African Democratic Change (ADC), after publicly criticising the Zuma administration.
However, when that party failed to take off, Khoza announced that she would be leaving politics.
Khoza signed on as executive director of Outa last year.
According to Eyewitness News, Khoza published a resignation letter in which she said she was retiring from Outa in order to bring about change by working in other spheres.
Khoza added that in her position as a leading figure of Outa, she was not able to adequately resist state capture and fight the battles she wished to fight.
Similarly, an Outa statement said that Khoza would also be focusing on research into African languages. The organisation described Khoza's leaving as amicable, and said she would still perform duties an Outa ambassador from time to time, according to IOL.
Khoza added on twitter that her ADC party was not dead, and that her daughter would be running for a Parliamentary seat under the mantle of that party.
