Mbali Ntuli. (Herman Verwey/City Press)

She has been at the helm in KwaZulu-Natal for over a decade. During this time, the young, outspoken and often unpopular DA leader has been credited with the growth of the party in the rural landscape of KZN, even ensuring that through her hard work, the DA would become kingmakers. 

Considered the underdog, Mbali Ntuli has campaigned for nearly 10 months with the hope that she can convince party members that she is the right person for the job. A young mother to a baby girl, Ntuli believes by running for the party's top job, should she win, she can steer the party towards its reconstruction. 

Ntuli was due to hold her last town hall meeting to convince party members and supporters why she would be the ideal party leader.
