Mbali Ntuli is a class act. A businesswoman and a political animal at heart, she has been part of the DA's grassroots building machinery from her early days as a youth leader to her current role as a member of the KwaZulu-Natal legislature.
Throughout her political career, she has focused on growing the DA's presence in former ANC and IFP strongholds, from KwaMashu and Ntuzuma, to the traditional north of KwaZulu-Natal.
She is exactly the type of leader a party, which seeks to shed an identity as a white enclave, needs. But the DA is not that party, and so a quality candidate like Ntuli is not their candidate.
