[LISTEN] KZN DA leader clarifies reports over BEE policy

While the Democratic Alliance (DA) federal council chairperson James Selfe has disputed claims the opposition party has decided to scrap its BEE policy and search for a broader economic empowerment policy, social media debates between some of the party's most senior members have left the public confused.

The confusion began after DA head of policy Gwen Ngwenya had reportedly told News24 that the political party would do away with the BEE policy because it was “simply not working”.

Speaking to Xolani Gwala on the Afternoon Drive, DA Kwazulu- Natal leader Zwakele Mncwango says the matter was brought forward to the federal council to consider the proposed framework by Ngwenya.

The proposal before us is not saying ignore redress. All it says is the broad based economic empowerment as put by the ANC is not working. All we are saying is we need an inclusive economy, hence the proposal came before the federal council of which they said we accept the framework, lets go and engage with the structures.

At no stage does it say we must forget about redress.
