Cape Town – Minutes after Mmusi Maimane resigned as AD leader on Wednesday, his former colleague in the Lille party Patricia was ready with an "I told you".
"I hate to say I told you that, but I'll say it anyway," said the GOOD leader in a statement released with her picture wearing boxing gloves.
Maimane announced on Wednesday following a FedEx DA meeting. Maimane's decision and that of Athol Trollip, who also resigned, dominated the discussions.
De Lille said: "When I resigned from AD on my own terms a year ago, on October 31, 2018, it was after learning bitter lessons that the party's stated policies were not compatible with its practices in government.
"I hate to say I told you that, but I'll say it anyway. I'm not claiming to be a sangoma, but I warned Mmusi Maimane that if he didn't follow the principle, his party's laptops would swallow him and spit it out. He," she said. .
