Opposition Leader Maimane Accuses Detractors of Smear Campaign
The leader of South Africa's main opposition party the Democratic Alliance, Mmusi Maimane, is under fire for declaring in the parliamentary register that a rented house where he resides in Cape Town belongs to him. Following this was the news that a car he was driving was paid for by Steinhoff, a company that has been embroiled in fraudulent accounting activity which saw the firm lose over 90% of its share value since the scandal broke in 2017. CEO Markus Jooste is accused of being the main cause of the downfall and is facing several lawsuits.
