Respect for Maimane

2017-06-27 06:01

I HAVE newfound respect for DA leader Mmusi Maimane for the strong leadership he has displayed in dealing with Helen Zille for bringing the party into disrepute for her offensive colonialism campaign.

Maimane has given hope that he is ready to take all South Africans to a better future for all.

I noticed him mentioning reconciliation so many times at the apology broadcast. Zille apologised to those she hurt with her tweets, and now we must decide if we accept this.

Our country needs more leaders like Maimane, leaders who inspire hope and hold wrongdoers accountable.
