Maimane was addressing DA delegates at the party’s Limpopo elective conference on Saturday. He told the more than 600 gathered delegates that the DA needed to leadership that serves the people of the country. He said leaders should not stand for corruption and looting of state resources but should rather protect these resources for the benefit of the poorest of the poor in the country.

Briefly.co.zalearned from Citizen.co.za that Maimane called corruption a cancer which steals the country’s most valuable resources. The DA leader said that it had become clear that the ANC would not be able to self-correct and could therefore no longer lead South Africa.

Maimane pointed out that the Auditor-General Kimi Makwetu had revealed that the national government had wasted R91 billion in taxpayer money through expenses that were found to have been either wasteful or irregular.

The DA leader slammed President Zuma’s surprise cabinet reshuffle and saying that he was concerned about rumours saying that the President was planning to dismiss Cyril Ramaphosa as deputy president.

Maimane said it was clear that the motivation behind the 11th cabinet reshuffle of President Zuma’s presidency was to secure a nuclear deal between South Africa and Russia which would provide cover for the President and his lackey’s to further loot the state.

He said he welcomed news that the FBI had launched investigations into the Gupta family and their US links. The UK also announced that it was investigating allegations that the Gupta family had used HSBC and Standard Chartered to funnel millions of rands illegally from Hong Kong and Dubai.

The DA said that it was committed to land restitution and was seeking ways to ensure that government was issuing title deeds to those working on land instead of providing leases to those people.
