Maimane was part of the Ad Hoc committee who took part in a site visit at the president’s homestead today.

The DA leader is known for his views on Zuma’s multi million rand homestead.

At the weekend her both he and the party stand firmly by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s findings on Nkandla, adding that the DA would fight to ensure that the president held to account.
