Eusebius McKaiser sits down with the People's Dialogue founder on why he left the Democratic Alliance to form a new party.

Former Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba and founder of the People's Dialogue says before he accepted mayoral candidateship by the Democratic Alliance (DA), he discussed emigrating with his family.

Mashaba joins Eusebius McKaiser to discuss why he still wants to be actively involved in South African politics.

We had two options, either we pack and go. The other option was for me to throw my hat in the ring and become an active participant in politics.

He says he joined the DA because it had this mantra of building one South Africa for all and that appealed to him.

I am a capitalist and capitalism runs in my blood, so they were the only party that resonated with me. But the problem started when I wanted to implement one South Africa for all in a practical manner.

Herman Mashaba, Founder - People's Dialogue

A few months before there were talks of a motion of no confidence, there were few DA members who started calling me a cheeky black. Cheeky blacks were those who were not toeing the line.

Upon announcing his resignation, there was an outcry by people for him to stay in politics, Mashaba notes.

Based on the submission received, we are going to form a political party.
