Former Democratic Alliance (DA) Youth leader and member of the DA Mbali Ntuli has revealed that she will soon be elected as DA leader. She shared the news on her Twitter page on Friday evening.
"On the 3rd of November, South Africans will wake up to a new DA leader," she wrote.
Ntuli has been going head to head with the DA's interim leader John Steenhuisen for the party's job.
Ntuli said that she invites all South Africans to read about what has been constantly been said about the DA online.
"You will soon realise how desperate South Africa is for the DA to become the party for all South Africans and take over government," she said.
Ntuli noted the social media post on Twitter as her final campaign message and thanked everyone who was behind her for their support.
She wrote: "Thank you to everyone both in the party and out who have encouraged me and been so wonderful. I am truly humbled!"
Messages of support came pouring in for Mbali Ntuli after she posted. Most notably from the EFF's Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.
Ndlozi wrote: "All the best Mbali... You are a winner either way. A young black woman against an entire undereducated, overrated white man! Whatever the outcome, FACT: You challenged a white man, in a white dominated party that is doing everything to isolate independent black thinkers in its ranks!"
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Ndlozi says Malema is the only leader who may call out 'black incompetence". EFF Commissar and Member of Parliament Mbuyiseni Ndlozi made a rather shocking claim on Twitter. Ndlozi said that EFF leader, Julius Malema, is the only leader in South Africa with a "license to criticize & call out black incompetence".
Ndlozi claims the reason why Juju is allowed to do so, is due to the fact that he is the only leader fighting for black people. His tweet has caused a lot of frustration in his replies section as Saffas just don't understand why he would tweet that.
