Maimane and I work separately but we endorse each other's programmes - Mashaba

Peoples Dialogue leader and founder Herman Mashaba says even though he is working separately from former Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane in their new political ventures, the two are supporting each other's programmes.

Mashaba shares these sentiments speaking to Clement Manyathela on the Midday Report.

This is after on Monday, Maimane said that small parties were being recruited to join a new political formation that he is expected to launch this year with Mashaba.

However, Mashaba has made it clear that he just wants to focus on starting one political party.

Maimane and I have been working separately from day one and talking about supporting each other. Mmusi and I have been working separating but are endorsing each other's programmes

Herman Mashaba, Leader - People's Dialogue

He says Maimane has his own programme where he goes around the country and engaging different parties and he has Mashaba's full support.

Elsewhere, Mashaba committed to providing legal assistance to families of Lilly Mine victims.

In 2016, three miners Pretty Nkambule, Yvonne Mnisi and Solomon Nyarenda were trapped underground after the entrance of the Lily Mine collapsed.

I have now engaged some of the top legal minds in South Africa to force the company responsible, the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy to ensure that the container is retrieved as a matter of urgency. The families and former employees are accordingly compensated and ensure that justice is served.
