    Party leaders have been locked in a meeting in Bruma just two days after the resignation of Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba.

    JOHANNESBURG – Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane is set to address the media on Wednesday afternoon amid mounting speculation about the outcomes of a meeting by the party’s federal executive (Fedex).

    Party leaders have been locked in a meeting in Bruma just two days after the resignation of Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba. Mashaba resigned on Monday following the announcement of Helen Zille as Fedex chair on Sunday.

    Mashaba quit in protest at what he said was a right-wing element in the DA as well as the election of Zille as council chairperson.

    Since Mashaba’s announcement on Monday, speculation has been swirling that Maimane will follow suit but the DA leader has remained silent.
