Cape Town — Mmusi Maimane has resigned from all positions in the Democratic Alliance as well as Parliament.
Maimane tweeted: "I have worked tirelessly to build the project of One SA for All. It's been my greatest honour to serve the people of SA and will continue to do so. I have today resigned from the DA and Parliament. Thank you to the people of this country for your faith in our nation. God bless SA."
This follows Maimane's resignation as leader of the Democratic Alliance yesterday. The party was thrown into further disarray after the resignation of its chairperson Athol Trollip, at the same media briefing.
The resignations come after Herman Mashaba resigned from the mayorship of Johannesburg, which is governed by the opposition Democratic Alliance in coalition with the Economic Freedom Fighters.
