Maimane says that he is disappointed in Zille and described their relationship as strained.

Our relationship is difficult, no doubt about that.

Mmusi Maimane, Leader of the DA

I am passionate to see all South Africans work together from all walks of life and any call that seeks not to advance that cause I will take action against it.

Mmusi Maimane, Leader of the DA

I have respect for Helen Zille. I think she has served South Africa but even in this instance where she has taken action, where I think it's inappropriate, I will take action against her.
