- Things have looked rather bleak for the biggest opposing party in South Africa, the Democratic Alliance
- Since Mmusi Maimane has stepped down as leader, a lot of faith in the party has been lost
- It seems the political party hopes to present a more positive outlook as it welcomes new members to its ranks - people who used to be part of the GOOD party
Since Mmusi Maimane left the Democratic Alliance, things have looked pretty blue for the political party.
For now, Helen Zille is back at the helm of the party after Maimane, Herman Mashaba and Anthony Trollip decided to bail.
Faith and support have been dwindling for a while but it seems the party hopes to turn things around as it will welcome new members to its ranks over the weekend.
These members are all from another political party, Patricia de Lille's GOOD party, reports The South African.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the new members will be welcomed on 10 November by Western Cape leader Bonginkosi Madikizela, along with Western Cape deputy leader Albert Fritz, and metro chairperson Grant Twigg.
"Madikizela will be addressing the media in a press conference whereafter he will officially welcome the new members of the party and present them with their DA membership cards."
