I stand by Kohler Barnard decision - Moodey

The Democratic Alliance has taken a "drastic step", terminating the party membership of one of its senior representatives in Parliament, Dianne Kohler Barnard.

However, the move hasn't been without controversy, with some accusing the party of grandstanding.

702's Xolani Gwala spoke to the party's Gauteng leader, John Moodey, who reportedly supported Kohler Barnard's axing.

Listen to the conversation below:

I think the public at large must stop speculating... People are free to express how they feel, but the Federal Executive has made its decision.
