FORMER Eastern Cape premier Nosimo Balindlela is expected to be unveiled as the newest high-profile member of the Democratic Alliance, in Parliament in Cape Town today.

“Her joining of the DA will shock so many people. It will not necessarily affect the ANC, but Cope will be negatively affected,” said a DA member, who is not authorised to speak to the media. The party insider said Balindlela was frustrated in Cope and was prepared to lose her parliamentary seat, and added, “She will be deployed to the Eastern Cape in one of the constituencies, but it will not be in the legislature.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
