“Happy birthday to DA leader John Steenhuisen. Here’s to many more years of standing with all hardworking and freedom-loving South Africans to build a united, safe and prosperous South Africa. Min’emnandi kuwe!”

Steenhuisen became the interim leader of the DA in 2019 after Mmusi Maimane stepped down from the position and was appointed the full-time leader in 2020. He has been at the forefront of movements such as opening a corruption case against Deputy President Paul Mashatile.

He was also vocal against cadre deployment and led the opposition party in their court case to obtain the cadre deployment documents. View the tweet here:
