Democratic Alliance (DA) Gauteng leader John Moodey says he will run for federal leader at the party's upcoming congress in May.
Moodey is expected to go head-to-head with Western Cape MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela, interim leader John Steeinhuisen and KwaZulu-Natal MPL Mbali Ntuli.
He joins Eusebius McKaiser to shed light on why he is can lead the DA.
South Africa finds itself in a very difficult position, we are far down towards a failed state, the African National Congress is not self-correcting and it never will self-correct.— John Moodey, Gauteng leader - DA
Cyril Ramaphosa was the hope and he has not stepped up to the plate for the past two years, he adds.
The hope for South Africa lies with the DA and we have seen our poor performance last year and the continued slide in by-elections. A person needs to ask themselves the question as to where the problem lies.— John Moodey, Gauteng leader - DA
South Africans want to ensure that this beautiful country of ours succeeds. The DA is the only vehicle that is able to hold the ANC to account and challenge it for governance.— John Moodey, Gauteng leader - DA
