Exodus of senior DA personnel continues as former Maimane chief of staff quits
I have today tendered my resignation as Chief of Staff to the DA Leader with immediate effect. This has not been an easy decision to arrive at, but after much thought, prayer and discussion with friends and family, Siya and I are convinced it is the right decision.
