DA MP Phumzile van Damme has rubbished rumours about an impending “black exodus” from the party.

This after a widely circulated WhatsApp message said Van Damme and other DA MPs, including Solly Msimanga and Makashule Gana, were going to hold a media briefing at party headquarters in Johannesburg on Monday to announce their resignations.

Van Damme, who has been vocal about the current goings-on in the DA, said the message was “nonsense” written by “ a very bored person”.
