The shock news of Max’s move to Cele’s office broke last Friday and it has been rumoured that Max will advise on the drug trade and gangsterism.
Early on Saturday, Max would not be drawn on the move and maintained that he was still a DA member and member of the legislature.
“For now I can’t say anything. I am still with the DA and up until the minister has confirmed it, then I am not going to comment,” he said.
But three hours later, Max invited the media to a press conference at the upmarket Pepper Club Hotel.
