BBBEE has only benefitted a handful of people - Mmusi Maimane

DA leader Mmusi Maimane has being accused of being a “rudderless” leader.

This comes after an announcement that the DA’s federal council had resolved to do away with its BBBEE policy, something senior leaders dispute.

Some members threatened to resign after this announcement was made.

Maimane says the DA's constitution has made it clear that the party is bound by values of freedom, fairness, opportunity and diversity.

The ANC has implemented a policy called BBBEE and its implementation has meant that a few people who are politically connected have gotten a lot of wealth.

Now the question remains that what do we do about the majority of South Africans who are poor, those 10 million South African who are unemployed.

Mmusi Maimane, DA leader

The system as the ANC has designed it failed. Now can we redesign it so that it can become more inclusive for more South Africans?

Maimane argues that the scheme needs to be reviewed to benefit more people at grassroots level and not just those that are politically connected.

The scheme needs a review. As South Africans, if we are going to sit around and say we're going to keep doing the same thing and hope for a different outcome, we not going to achieve the growth that we need.

Mmusi Maimane, DA leader

We need to review the scheme so that we can hand over wealth to the future generation.
