JOHANNESBURG - The DA's latest leadership candidate has outlined why she'll be contesting for the top job at the elective conference in May.
Mbali Ntuli is the DA's former Youth Leader.
She will be going up against interim leader John Steenhuisen and DA Gauteng Leader, John Moodey.
Ntuli believes she can unite a divided DA.
“I'm running because we need a new type of politics in South Africa, we need a politics that is different. I want to make the party strong and kind and fair. I know those words have connotations that make it seem like you're weak but I believe that's what the party needs to be if it wants to get South Africans to believe in it and be credible....” she said.
“At the moment the DA has become a party where one leader of two leaders are at the helm and they seem to make all the decisions while the rest of us are grown around. That is not the way to lead a party,” Ntuli added.
Ntuli spoke to eNCA's political editor, Vuyo Mvoko on throwing her hat in the race.
