Mbali Ntuli has announced her resignation from the Democratic Alliance (DA) and member of the KwaZulu-Natal Legislature.
She says her decision is necessary for her growth as a community leader.
Ntuli says she is proud of the work she has done in the DA.
“I have tendered my resignation to my party, both as a DA member and as a member of the KZN legislature. I have decided of my own volition, that for my own personal growth and trajectory in the role that I play in the country to step back. I have done my bit for the DA and I can be proud of the work that I have done there. This is now an opportunity for me to do some more good work on the ground. So, I am not lost to serving my country but I think I am better suited and have more energies to do it elsewhere now.”

In May last year, DA MP Phumzile Van Damme resigned. Van Damme was placed on special leave by the party in November 2020 without consultation.
In December last year, former DA Midvaal Executive Mayor Bongani Baloyi parted ways with the DA.
He joined Action SA in January, saying he finds himself at home within the party and is looking forward to imparting his skills as a public servant in his new home.
Baloyi says the 2024 national and provincial elections will be his main focus.
