- Mmusi Maimane has taken to Twitter to throw shade on the DA

- Maimane also laid out three things he wanted to change in South Africa to make the country more democratic
Leader of the One South Africa Movement Mmusi Maimane has taken to Twitter to vent his frustration at the Democratic Alliance, a party he was once the leader of.
He slammed the current leader John Steenhuisen's announcement that the DA would work with the ANC as long as President Cyril Ramaphosa, saying that this would make the DA a faction of the ANC.
Maimane said that there is no good ANC and bad ANC, there is just the ANC.
"Let’s start with a core issue South Africa must accept. There is no good ANC and no bad ANC.
We have seen corruption from both factions and we have seen 27 years of mismanagement and misappropriation of state resources.
I said this before and I will say it again. It’s the ANC."
He said that the DA announcement that the DA is open to a coalition with factions within the ANC as long as Ramaphosa is in charge.
"They are officially out of opposition and are now themselves a faction of the ANC."
Maimane listed three things he wanted to change to transform democracy in South Africa:
"Number 1 #DirectElections we need to make that a priority to give back power to the people."
"Number 2 - we have to fix our education system."
"Number 3 - we must get our economy going again. Right now we have a stagnant economy that is managed not for growth but to maintain the status quo."
He called on people who wanted real change in South Africa to consider the One South Africa Movement.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that ex-DA leader Mmusi Maimane recently headed to Twitter to throw some shade at former president Jacob Zuma and at the same time the EFF's Julius Malema who recently enjoyed a cup of tea at Zuma's Nkandla homestead with him.
Maimane's shade comes after a picture of a luxury car convoy arrived at Zuma's Kwa-ZuluNatal luxury Nkandla homestead was shared online by Twitter user, @DasenThathiah who captioned the picture:
"A convoy of luxury vehicles with Mpumalanga number plates has arrived at #JacobZuma’s Nkandla home. Earlier, a delegation from the National Freedom Party arrived to meet with the former president. MKMVA members are still stationed outside."
