The Democratic Alliance (DA) has dismissed the call by one of its Gauteng legislature members, Khume Ramulifho, for the appointment of Natasha Mazonne as the party’s Deputy Federal Executive (Fedex) chairperson to be rescinded.

Ramulifho has threatened court action to challenge the validity of the appointment of Mazonne during the party national conference in April.  The DA’s leadership has been accused of not following its own constitution and illegally promoting Mazonne to one of its most influential positions. The party’s Gauteng leader, John Moodey, has briefed the media after a DA’s Federal Executive committee meeting in Johannesburg

“Fedex has deliberated on the opinions received and has decided that we will confirm the position of Natasha Mazonne as the DA Deputy Federal Executive and we hope and trust that this matter will be put to rest once and for all,” says Moodey.
