Johannesburg - The DA says Lennit Max cannot be an advisor to Police Minister Bheki Cele and still remain a DA member.
The party's Western Cape leader Bonginkosi Madikizela said the party welcomed Max's resignation as the member of the Western Cape provincial legislature and it wishes him well on his new role.
However, Madikizela said Max's comments at a press briefing held on Monday were indicative that he was campaigning for the ANC by continuously referring to the slogan "Thuma Mina”, a slogan that has become part of the ANC's lexicon.
Max was offered the job by Cele but said he will remain as a DA member.
"Max indicated his intention to become an ANC member when he said “I am not yet a member of the ANC”.
