JOHANNESBURG - Former Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille has announced a new political movement.

And she plans to contest the 2019 elections nationally and in all 9 provinces.

In a press briefing just now, the former Cape Town mayor slammed the DA and her relationship with the party.

She painted a picture of abuse, but says she has enough energy to serve South Africa.

The name and policy of the new movement will be unveiled in two weeks' time.

In the meantime, a website called forgood.org.za has been launched.

A few weeks ago, she told eNCA that she needed space to consider her options.

She resigned as both mayor and DA member at the end of last month.

But she confirmed that she's been approached by other political parties.

De Lille's relationship with the DA was strained during the latter part of her term as mayor.

The party had accused her of misconduct and corruption more than a year ago.

She says that instead of admitting the party’s mistakes, DA councillors resorted to attacking her. She is now taking legal action against the DA.
