He is to launch his “movement” in the next two months, which he claims is not a political party. Speaking to the SABC earlier this week, Maimane said he will not follow the conventional way of forming a political party. He said he would rather allow ordinary South Africans to decide what form his envisaged political formation should take.

Maimane’s first engagement in KwaZulu-Natal was in a community that the DA has previously enjoyed support in. However, he says he is not targeting only DA members.“I’m mobilising South Africans who believe in non-racialism, who believe in one South Africa, who believe that in fact, we can fight for jobs, we can fight for justice, who believe that we can work together to hold our public representatives accountable. Therefore these are people from different parties. I’m not sitting here targeting one party. This is not in an offset of a political party, this is a movement for one South Africa.”
