DA regional chair resigns

2018-11-02 06:00

THE Democratic Alliance (DA) says it is unfazed by the resignation of former DA Alfred Nzo Regional chairperson Bongile Ngqasa, who claims that the party failed the Alfred Nzo Region. Ngqasa said the Alfred Nzo Region, which comprises many rural areas, was not taken into consideration by the party.

This week, the Fever spoke to Ngqasa about his resignation from the party, who said he was still undecided about his political career. He said he will inform the public about his new political home at a community meeting in Mount Frere on November 7.

“I will announce my new home next month because the DA has failed the people of Alfred Nzo Region,” Ngqasa said.

DA Alfred Nzo District Municipality councillor Wonga Potwana said the party is undisturbed by the resigning of Ngqasa and the party is now preparing next year’s general elections, saying: “We are busy campaigning for rural communities to support the DA. At a local campaign in Matatiele, we have signed up 25 community members who wanted to work for the party.”

Potwana was appointed as acting Alfred Nzo Regional chairperson. He said he will make sure that rural communities get their identity documents before next year’s elections.
