Cape Town - The DA's head of policy Gwen Ngwenya has resigned less than a month before the launch of the party's elections manifesto ahead of the general elections.
The party's national spokesperson Solly Malatsi confirmed that she had tendered her resignation to DA leader Mmusi Maimane.
"We thank Ms Ngwenya for the role she has played, she will now dedicate herself full time to her energy portfolio and bring considerable expertise to bear to her parliamentary work," Malatsi told the Cape Argus.
"Policy in the DA is developed through a variety of structures and highly skilled individuals, and this work will continue that will culminate in the launch of our election manifesto on 23 February. This manifesto which will give life to our vision of delivering change that will build One South Africa for All," Malatsi said.
A copy of the resignation letter has been circulated online, and in it, Ngwenya makes some damning assertions.
