DA leader Mmusi Maimane is delivering a speech on race and identity within the party and SA.

According to the DA, the speech will have consequences for all DA structures and members across the country. This follows comments made by former DA member Penny Sparrow, who compared Durban beach goers to monkeys. The comments received much criticism from the public, with many calling for Maimane to speak out about race within his party.

The Speech is scheduled to start at 10am and will be held at the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg.
