Democratic Alliance Member of Parliament Phumzile Van Damme has resigned as a MP.
Van Damme was placed on special leave by the party in November 2020.
“I have had a full and life-shaping journey as a Democratic Alliance (DA) activist, staff member, the longest serving National Spokesperson from 2014 to 2018, and a Shadow Minister, which I put my all into,” said Van Damme in a statement released on Thursday.
The DA says it has received and accepted the resignation of Phumzile Van Damme as a Member of Parliament and from the Party.
“I will not be joining another political party, nor will I be using my time to launch attacks on the DA,” says Van Damme.
Van Damme says her resignation is not because the DA is a so-called racist party, but a due to a clique of individuals.
