DA Western Cape notes resignation of Provincial Leader, Bonginkosi Madikizela

28 April 2021

The Democratic Alliance’s (DA), Bonginkosi Madikizela, has today submitted his resignation as DA Provincial Leader in the Western Cape.

We wish to thank Bonginkosi for his service as party leader since his election to the position of DA Leader in the Western Cape in 2018. Bonginkosi served as the leader for more than three years.

We respect his decision and the honourable route he has taken by stepping down as leader. This shows the clear difference between the DA and the ANC.

We look forward to working with him as a colleague in the DA going forward.

Albert Fritz will remain the acting provincial leader until the Party elects an interim leader at the Provincial Council on 29 May 2021.

Issued by Jaco Londt, DA Provincial Chairperson, Western Cape, 28 April 2021
