'DA has a tough choice, ditch divisive leaders or face the ire of the voters'

Breakfast show host Bongani Bingwa reacts to the recent tweets by some DA leaders.

Breakfast show host Bongani Bongwa says the Democratic Alliance is in trouble.

This comes after tweets from Mayor Herman Mashaba and Premier Helen Zille had social media gunning for them.

Bingwa also question the silence of some of the leaders in the party such as Mmusi Maimane, Phumile van Damme and John Steenhuisen.

And I’m not convinced the mayor really means we must also separate families and lock children up in cages using the very Bible verses that were quoted to support slavery as part of immigration control.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast show host

The ideas that are promoted by the likes of Zille are not exclusively Western but even if they were, they could have come without the near genocide on which the colonial project was premised.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast show host

The DA has a tough choice to make here, ditch this divisive leader or face the ire of the voters next year.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast show host

It’s their last chance.
