About 600 bidders and onlookers stood ten-deep inside Bosasa's Imbizo Hall on Wednesday morning, braving wet and cold conditions to grab a piece of the Bosasa pie.
Sinethemba Amanda Gwen Ngwenya is wrapping up 2019 as the DA's head of policy, a position she resigned from at the beginning of the year.
Newly elected interim leader of the DA John Steenhuisen says he'll defend his party against "all-comers", including against the "immature and unhelpful" Institute of Race Relations.
Former DA policy head Gwen Ngwenya's imminent return to the party is already being seen as a litmus test, in terms of the direction the DA should take, with numerous progressive forces in the party resisting the move.
Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has welcomed the Gauteng High Court's dismissal of former Western Cape premier Helen Zille's application to have her report on Zille's controversial colonialism tweets reviewed and set aside.
Newly elected DA federal council chairperson Helen Zille says she has no ambition of leading the party again.
Outgoing Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba says there was no hypocrisy in his resignation speech.
It is sad when a party loses talented people. It is sadder still when one has worked for decades to build a party to see it teetering on the brink of a major setback, writes Douglas Gibson.
Mmusi Maimane, who resigned as leader of the DA on Wednesday, must take responsibility for his short-lived career in the DA, writes TTshidi Madia. But we must also acknowledge that he was punished for trying to change the party from within.
The DA's Federal Council will meet on November 17 to elect an interim leader and interim chairperson of the party, according to FedCo chair Helen Zille.
The fallout in the DA is a result of the failure by the dominant faction to appreciate concerns of all South Africans and to redirect the fears of whites toward solutions for the country's problems, writes Mpumelelo Mkhabela.
It is not normal for a society to be this unequal, hence we cannot adopt a standard or even classical approach to the challenges that we encounter, writes Ralph Mathekga.
The DA's John Steenhuisen speaks to News24 in a live interview, 24 hours after his election as interim leader.
The media has over the past decade issued superficial appeals for political leaders to be held accountable. Yet, when the DA does exactly that to its own leaders the reaction from commentators and the media is hysterical, apocalyptic and silly, writes Leon Schreiber
The problem in the DA was one of leadership, not race, and the party had to get that right, newly elected federal council chairperson Helen Zille told the Cape Town Press Club.
If the DA aggressively shifts towards the centre-right or market liberalism, this means that it will be left to the EFF and ANC to defend multiracialism and inclusivity, writes Ralph Mathekga.
The DA might play it safer among its minority adherents who are more receptive to issues such as BEE and the rise of racial nationalism. But it's precisely this dilemma the party couldn't quite get right these last three years, writes Daniel Silke.
Helen Zille is not only bad news for the DA; she is bad news for South African democracy and its future, writes Tafi Mhaka for Al Jazeera.
The leaderless DA is "a resilient party of rules, structures and procedures", party Federal Council chairperson Helen Zille says.
When Frederlik van Zyl Slabbert resigned from the PFP in 1986 he left behind "a bewildered and confused party". When Mmusi Maimane left the PFP's desendant, the DA, 33 years later, it was in a similar state of shock and confusion.
Helen Zille grew the DA from a parochial, provincial party into a national powerhouse that doubled its support in a decade. But like many liberation leaders-turned-dictators, Zille couldn't let go of the power. So she took down the house of cards with her, writes Adriaan Basson.
