JOHANNESBURG - Dianne Kohler Barnard is no longer a member of the Democratic Alliance.

She faced the party&39;s disciplinary committee after she shared a Facebook post that was calling for the return of Apartheid-era President PW Botha.

The party&39;s Federal Executive decided to terminate her membership after a meeting to decide her punishment.

"The Federal Executive further resolved that Ms Kohler-Barnard’s membership of the DA be terminated," said the DA in a press statement released on Friday.

 

 

 

She faced a disciplinary committee after she shared a Facebook post that was calling for the return of Apartheid-era President PW Botha.

The disciplinary committee made recommendations to the executive about the MP&39;s conduct.

Since then Kohler-Barnard has been disciplined and demoted by the party.

Kohler-Barnard will have a chance to appeal the decision.  

 

 

DA MP Juanita Terblanche was also expelled on Friday.

“In the matter of Juanita Terblanche, the federal executive upheld the FLC’s finding that Ms Terblanche’s appeal be dismissed. Accordingly, Ms Terblanche’s membership is terminated,” Van Damme said.
