- Speculation has been rife that the Democratic Alliance leader would be throwing in the towel today
- With citizens waiting on Maimane after a massive delay, social media has been abuzz over the situation
Social media is hyped up as the nation waits for Mmusi Maimane to address rumours that he will be divorcing the Democratic Alliance.
Briefly.co.za reported that rumours within the party indicated that it was not a question of if Maimane will resign, it is a question of when.
This served to ignite massive public interest in the briefing, with the media poised to broadcast to the rest of South Africa.
Hours after the briefing had meant to begin, citizens are dying to know what is happening behind closed doors.
