Mbali Ntuli introspects, sets sights on top DA post
Democratic Alliance (DA) KwaZulu-Natal MPL Mbali Ntuli is expected to run for federal leader at the party's upcoming congress in May.
In an internal letter addressed to the party's leaders, Ntuli raises concerns around the state of the party as well as her intent to run for the position.
In the letter, Ntuli says the party is in 'deep crisis' and that it has suffered a series of losses: "Just a few months ago we were focusing on winning government. Today, we are in a permanent state of damage control. We no longer plan to take over government; we are planning to just hold on to our existing support base and even that seems impossible."
Ntuli is set to publicly announce the decision on 7 February.
Clement Manyathela spoke to political analyst Ralph Mathekga says the letter is scathing.
She is reflecting in a manner that says that currently the party is headed in the wrong direction.Ralph Mathekga, Political analyst
Does she stand a chance? I think that it would be very difficult. For them to turn towards her direction would be something very strange but I think this is a very clear introspection about where the party is sitting now.Ralph Mathekga, Political analyst
