Head of Politics and Governance at the Institute of Race Relations Gareth van Onselen gives an update on the DA WC position.

Has Mmusi Maimane thrown his name in the hat for the Premier of the Western Cape?

We all have to keep waiting to find out.

The federal executive has again postponed the announcement of who will replace Helen Zille due to what analyst say is infighting.

They have yet again postponed the announcement which suggests there is more internal conflict.
