Mmusi Maimane announces partnership with former ANC member, Neil De Beer

Published on

Mmusi Maimane took to social media to share a statement revealing that former ANC member, Neil De Beer, has left the party to form a partnership with his One South Africa Movement.

Leader of One South Africa Movement (OSA), Mmusi Maimane took to Twitter on Thursday, 1 October 2020, to reveal the movement’s newest partner. Former African National Congress (ANC) National Security Advisor and former Umkhonto weSizwe intelligence agent, Neil De Beer, has decided to partner with OSA.

The decision comes as De Beer announced the immediate suspension of his membership with the ANC, after reportedly being with the party for 32 years. According to the statement, De Beer’s decision to part with the party was as a result of the party not being recognisable to him anymore.

The partnership between Maimane and De Beer is through the coalition between OSA and the latter’s newly formed movement, United Independent Movement (UIM). Both movements are said to share a common vision, which is to “educate South Africans about their power and fundamental rights to uplift their communities and elect independent candidates into office.”
