Maimane on mission to establish movement ahead of 2024 elections
Former Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane says he is working on a political movement that could change the way South Africans see politics in time for the 2024 general elections.
Maimane joins Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show to give more insight on the matter.
The core of our problems is that citizens are being distanced away from their politicians, they feel like politicians are over there and they are here. Citizens don't feel like politicians are accountable to them.Mmusi Maimane, Former leader - DA
Citizens feel as though adding another party will not solve the country's problems, he says.
In my new role as an activist, I am going back to the people of this country and say let us have a dialogue about the future we want to build. Secondly, let us have a movement of South Africans and get fresh voices. Perhaps the mistake citizens made was to say: 'We have a great leader in Nelson Mandela and gave power to him and stopped participating actively in politics.'Mmusi Maimane, Former leader - DA
We need to be part of a movement that holds politicians accountable.Mmusi Maimane, Former leader - DA
