DA: Rajbansi introduced coalition to SA

"He was one of the people who introduced the idea of coalition politics to South Africa by strategically aligning his party with others to achieve his objectives," Democratic Alliance leader Helen Zille said.
He was a renowned politician who had served for many decades in various key political positions, both before and after the advent democracy.
"He had significant influence in KwaZulu-Natal, where he was a well-known figure.
