The party's KZN chairperson, Vusi Khoza, says they've tried to reach out to Wodumo.  

DA leader Mmusi Maimane also weighed in on the saga, saying Mampintsha shouldn’t come with excuses and should just face the music for his actions.

Maimane says the musician, who's seen slapping Wodumo in the video, should be jailed.
