DA leader Mmusi Maimane has announced that former party leader and Western Cape premier Helen Zille has been suspended from the DA following her controversial tweets about colonialism.

Maimane made the announcement at a media conference in Kempton Park on Saturday.

He said that it has become evident that he and Zille hold fundamentally different attitudes about the mission the DA must accomplish in 2019.

"I asked her to tender an unreserved apology to both South Africa and the DA for the damage she has done. Unfortunately, she declined," Maimane said.

Zille has been suspended from all party related activities until her disciplinary hearing is concluded. A notice of suspension will be served on her in this regard.
