Mmusi Maimane wants to wake up in a non-racist and inclusive South Africa, the DA parliamentary leader tells Sue Segar in a unique profile interview.
"This might well sound self-serving because I am in a mixed marriage but I really do dream of a South Africa that is inclusive and non-racist. I do believe it’s possible for South Africans to live in that place."
All indications are that the Democratic Alliance parliamentary leader, 35-year-old Mmusi Maimane, will be the next leader of the party after Helen Zille’s announcement that she will be stepping down.
We are sitting in Maimane’s office in Parliament from where he heads up the team of 89 DA MPs. It’s the day after the turbulent no-confidence debate during which he called President Jacob Zuma a thief, and challenged ANC MPs to stop ignoring their leader’s “destruction of our democracy”.
